Adoptable Dog of the Day: Mercedes in Indiana

Pin It

Mercedes is an 8 year-old Pug who is in the care of the Rescue Farm in Poland, IN.  As a result of negligent treatment before she was rescued, Mercedes is classified as a special needs dog. She had an untreated ear infection which has left her deaf (although the infection has now been treated). She also may be blind, due to cataracts.

However, the shelter reports that Mercedes copes very well with her handicaps and still loves to play outside and to interact with other dogs and with cats. She is still a bit underweight (12 pounds) and could stand to gain a few more pounds.

Mercedes is spayed and is up to date with her shots. In a home where she receives love and support, Mercedes will blossom into a wonderful pet.
