Stevie the Wonder Dog

I adopted her to give her a better life.

— Carly —

Still puppy-hearted at 4 years old, Stevie the Catahoula/English Setter has already experienced many trials during her short life due to a genetically caused blindness. She was rescued from a back alley breeder in Cachagua. Her owner Carly shared that “recently one of her eyes developed glaucoma. She needs to have it removed and my insurance won’t cover it. This surgery will help her to lead a happy and pain free life. She currently needs eye drops 3 times a day and she hates it and is always in pain. I adopted her to give her a better life and I would be so grateful if your organization could help me to give her that. Thank you so much for your time and consideration.”

With the cost of the surgery looming, Stevie’s owner Carly got in touch with Max’s Helping Paws for support. Seeing this blind and beautiful puppy in need of treatment, Max’s was able to offer the financial support for Stevie to take her next steps toward surgery. Carly’s delight in being able to continue helping Stevie was evident in her response, “Oh yay!! Thanks so much again!! All my animals have something “special” about them, but rescuing a blind puppy has definitely been one of the most challenging and most rewarding decisions I have made. Thanks to you and your entire organization for helping me give Stevie the pain free life she deserves! The surgery is on Saturday so I will definitely be in touch.”

Once the surgery occurred, the chronic pain and problematic eye is now relieved for Stevie. In fact, Stevie and Carly are on the loving road to recovery and healthy living once again.

As a responsible, faithful and grateful pet owner, Carly continues to send updates about Stevie. With the latest, “She is doing well and starting to behave like her old self again. Thank you so much for your help and support through this!”
