Meet PERCY!  This little munchkin is a 10 month old, male, 8 lb, Morkie (Maltese / Yorkie mix).  Percy is super sweet, good with other dogs, and great with kids!  He is playful, very inquisitive, and always finding new ways to have an adventure (move over Indiana Jones!).  Percy is happy and snuggly and a little lover.  He enjoys going on walks and is working on his housetraining.  He is quite smart and learned "sit" in a snap!  

Percy came to Lovin' Life Rescue because his family did not have time for him.  He was gotten as a companion for the 5 year old child in the home, but the mom worked all day and the child was too young to be expected to know how to care for a dog.  Poor Percy was alone all day and given minimal attention at night.  Put in your application right away, so you can give Percy all the love that he deserves and he can shower you with happiness!   

NOTE:  We took Percy to the vet immediately after picking him up from being surrendered.  Upon examination, a mass the size of a grape tomato was found under his chin.  The vet thought it could be an abscess, an enlarged salivary gland, or an enlarged lymph node.  A Fine Needle Aspirate (FNA) came back showing lympohocytes.  The vet said Percy could have an infection or cancer.  However, the salivary gland and lymph node are close together, so because Percy is a BABY, we opted to treat with anti-biotics.  The lump did not decrease in size after a week and a half, so we did another FNA and had it sent out to a lab for a cytology with more definitive results.  The lab results came back as benign lymphoid reactive hyperplasia secondary to inflammation.  His bloodwork results were all normal, so it is a bit of a mystery as to what the enlarged lymph node is reacting.  The vet recommended observation with no further medication for the next few weeks...    


If you are interested in adopting Percy, please complete an application. If you want to enjoy the companionship of a dog or cat but not yet ready for the long-term commitment of adopting, perhaps fostering is more your speed. Please read our foster FAQ if you are interested in being a foster parent or contact foster@lovinliferescue.org.
