Ayita: Locked in a crate her entire life, now battling for her life

Ayita: Locked in a crate her entire life, now battling for her life

 

New York Bully Crew received a call from a previous adopter about an 8 month old pup, living her life in a crate in an almost completely condemned part of New Jersey. Her owners were about to euthanize her because they were told from friends that was their only choice.  

At first, she was thought to have some sort of dwarfism, or a deformity from living in a small, confined space.  Even NYBC’s highly-educated vet was not familiar with what this sweet, tiny girl was afflicted with, but luckily the owner surrendered her to New York Bully Crew and her life has taken on a different path.

She is now named Ayita, meaning “little one” in Sioux. Craig, founder and director of NYBC, has taken on the role of Ayita’s surrogate dad.  She has won over the hearts of his entire pack and brings joy to whoever she meets.

Because of an aware and educated follower of NYBC, the rescue organization looked into the possibility of MPS, or Mucopolysaccharidosis.

Mucopolysaccharidosis is a serious disorder. Puppies born afflicted with this disorder rarely survive past the age of 2, and those who survive that long have a range of medical issues. In order to be born with MPS, both parents must be carriers of the MPS gene.

Newborn puppies may not show any sign of the disease right away, but as the cells become damaged from not being able to get rid of the old mucopolysaccharides, symptoms start to appear. It causes spinal and skeletal deformities that can result in cracked and deformed vertebrae, facial deformities and neurological issues.

NYBC sent samples out for lab work and it has been confirmed through genetic testing that Ayita does indeed have MPS. This only confirms her condition but not her fate.  Right now, she is a happy, adorable puppy that is experiencing a new life filled with daily adventures and unconditional love.

Craig and New York Bully Crew believe that this specific call to rescue Ayita was divine intervention.  It was an opportunity to to be part of a greater cause.  Since Ayita’s arrival, New York Bully Crew feels compelled to help raise awareness about this genetic condition, make owners of MPS dogs informed that these dogs can still live lives filled with quality and experience the joy that they give, and make more people understand that euthanization is not necessary and these pups can thrive during their lives.  

Most importantly, NYBC wants to stress the importance of responsible breeding.  The only way to end MPS is to not breed dogs that carry the gene.  It is that simple. MPS effects a multitude of breeds, most commonly Miniature Pinchers. Ayita was surrendered to New York Bully Crew because of desperation, but the rescue believes she came to them so they can expand our knowledge and hearts and let learning and compassion guide Ayita on her incredible journey.

With every purchase you make, a donation will be sent to help care for Ayita and support the work done by MPS Army Foundation (MPS Army Founation).
