Poplolly was 8 weeks old when she was surrendered to Road Dogs & Rescue from a breeder and was found suffering from a perforated eyeball. Poor breeders are often commercial operations where profit is placed above the well-being of animals. Bred without consideration of genetic quality, this produces generations of dogs with unchecked hereditary defects. Poplolly's condition is most likely due to overbreeding.
When Poplolly was found, she was so young that the vet and her rescue had a hard time deciding if the eye should be removed right away, or if they should wait it out. It did appear that Poplolly's eye was improving. However, the eye specialist soon discovered that she also had glaucoma, which is very painful. Ultimately, both doctors and Road Dogs decided that her eye needed to be removed. Thanks to your donations, Poplolly was able to have her surgery right away. She pulled through like a champ and is still as feisty as ever! Thank you to everyone that supported this pint-sized pooch through her journey! Poplolly has been adopted by a great new mom and she will have a little Boston Terrier sister to play with! No doubt they will get into trouble!
