Hello!  My name is Mary Jane, and I'm a petite spaniel/beagle mix at only 22 lbs.  I'm 4 years old, housebroken, gentle, cuddly, great with other dogs of all sizes, and love everyone I meet.  I'm pretty near perfect, if I do say so myself!  

I have quite a story to tell you.  I ended up on death row at a shelter through no fault of my own.  You see, I am diabetic, and my body recently went into something called ketoacidosis, because I was not on any medication for my illness.  This meant that I was a very sick little girl when I arrived at the shelter.  The good news is that the shelter paid for me to receive life-saving care. The bad news is that after the shelter saved my life, a rescue had to pull me from the shelter within 24 hours, or I would be put down because of lack of space.  Talk about scary!

Enter this wonderful rescue called "OBG."  One of their incredible volunteers took a day off work to drive several hours to rescue me.  That was a close call!  I then went to one of their veterinarian offices, where the vet was able to get my diabetes under control and glucose regulated.  Once there, I heard that people were afraid to foster me because I need insulin injections.  The truth is that really don't mind getting my insulin injections; it doesn't hurt at all, and my foster mama, who was not sure about this whole needle/injection thing, told me it's really easy to do.  No need to find a vein - just pinch some fat and stick the needle in there.  The best part is that I get a treat after each injection!  Yum, yum.

My foster mama estimates that the insulin injections, syringes and prescription food will cost approximately $100 a month.  I will also need glucose curve tests every 6 months, which will cost about $100 each time.  I promise you, I'm worth the money!
