Sage is an abused senior girl fighting for her life.
This poor girl just breaks my heart. Meet the severely emaciated and horribly abused senior female Min-Pin named Sage. Our partners at The Arrow Fund are at capacity but they knew they had to step up to save this poor neglected and abused girl. Now we are here to help them save tiny Sage.
Rescuers and volunteers transported Sage from Davies County , Kentucky to The Arrow Fund in Louisville, Kentucky. There she was taken to the emergency clinic for life saving care. This case is under investigation by police so there will be no public details at this time. Thank you for your understanding on this matter.
This sweetheart is in critical shape. We are surprised she is even alive. Sage is undergoing lots of testing today. She will see cardiologist Dr.Bell today, due to a heart murmur. Sage is severely emaciated, and has had uncontrolled diabetes for a while. She is blind from diabetic cataracts and will see Dr. Tolar next week to see if her eyes can be saved . She must be fed very small meals several times a day to make sure her body processes the food correctly. This girl is only half the body weight she should be . She only weighs 5 pounds!
All Sage just wants to be held and feel safe. This sweet girl did not deserve such neglect … Every minute counts. Please keep her close to your heart. Thank you to all of our supporters. Working together we can and do make a difference in the lives of of these innocent creatures. We appreciate you all.

UPDATE 7-22-16: It was a long night, but finally our little girl is settled in. This is going to be tuff on her. The Arrow Fund will have her tests results back shortly. In the mean time they are keeping her stable.
UPDATE 7-25-17: Sage the blind and severely emaciated older female Min-Pin is recovering well. This girl was so neglected . The video is from late last night. Sage is still receiving very small meals and they are closely monitoring her diabetes. As she increases food her insulin levels change . After being hydrated and getting much needed medical care and receiving lots of love, you can see Sage is feeling so much better .
UPDATE 8-8-17: This girl was so neglected...Sage has been a very difficult case to regulate and still is at the Emergency Hospital. Being so emaciated and getting the correct dose of insulin has been challenging. She finally hit 6 pounds and we are thrilled, but as you can see, she is still underweight. Sage will also revisit eye specialist Dr. Erica Tolar soon. Her eyes will be evaluated to see if any vision can be recovered through surgery. At the present time she is not a good surgical candidate due to her weight. Please continue to support The Arrow Fund and tiny Sage in her recovery.
