Family and friends of Sugar are uniting to raise money to help with her battle against kidney disease.

Sugar is a rescued pit bull puppy who, at the young age of 6 months, is fighting for her life.
She has been diagnosed with kidney disease. While there is a chance that she suffers from congenital kidney disease, this likely is a result of exposure to a toxin when she was just weeks old. After landing in a high-kill shelter, neglected and emaciated, Sugar was saved by a wonderful rescue group. We are so grateful to them for giving her a chance.
Unfortunately, the severity of her health issues was not quite realized at that time. While she was seemingly making good progress and showed signs of improvement, in reality, her poor little body was in turmoil... But since it appeared that she was well on the path to being a healthy dog, she was made available for adoption.
And here she is.
Fortunately, we soon recognized how sick she really is and sought urgent medical attention just in time. It is truly a miracle that she is still here with us today. While at her worst, she experienced a seizure in the middle of the night and went over to the other side. We resuscitated her.
And here she still is, thankfully.
It is day-to-day with Sugar. We are grateful for every single day we have with her, especially if it is a good day. Her quality of life is generally good and she is a happy dog, just very sick. That is why we continue to fight this battle. She is on SubQ fluids 2x daily, plus medication, and the vet visits are neverending. Our regular vet and our holistic vet have joined forces to help save Sugar and we are eternally grateful to them for all that they have done.
The next step for her is a kidney biopsy so that we can finally know how best to treat her.
We don't know what the total expenses will be - but we felt we had to get something started so that we can win this battle! All money donated will be used to pay for medical expenses.
