Sugar Plum was shot in the face.
We have created this campaign page to help raise the funds needed to save a puppy who was shot in the face.
Sugar Plum was just taken in by The Arrow Fund. She was shot in the face. It has destroyed most of her mouth and nose. Her teeth are shattered and she has on nostrils. Sugar Plum has arrived at Metropolitan Veterinary Specialists and will see surgeon, Dr. Applewhite. After the doctors evaluation, rescuers will know more about what reconstruction surgeries are possible. This girl is so happy to be off a chain and actually loved.
UPDATE 12-26-18: Sugar Plum and Rebecca of The Arrow Fund met with Dr. Applewhite, the surgeon who will be working on Sugar Plum. Dr. Applewhite assured that Sugar Plum's facial injury is currently causing her no distress. Sadly, this is an old injury, she suffered greatly out on a chain after it happened. But she is the sweetest girl despite what she went through and never stopped wagging her tail!
UPDATE 1-3-2019: Here is a recent report from Dr. Adrienne Robertson. Conformation that Sugar Plum’s injury was caused by being shot in the head and chest with buckshot. Her muzzle is completely missing on the left side. The left side of her muzzle has healed deformed causing blockage of her airway on the adjacent side. Because of the abnormal strain of air intake she is having difficulty breathing normally. Her right side lung fields have congestion on auscultation. Because she is also fighting her battle with Heartworms, Erlichia and Lyme Disease (a terrible combination) at this time she is receiving medical care to prepare her for upcoming reconstruction procedures planned.
After initially treating her diseases, doctors will attempt to repair her face and sinuses to hopefully give her one nostril to breathe through, a "snorkel" as he called it. She will also need some teeth extracted in a separate surgery
Now we are here to help raise the funds rescuers need to cover the costs of Sugar's surgeries.
