Justice is Blind

Special-needs dog learns justice is blind, but love isn't

June 15, 2015

Mikey was surrendered to the Michigan Humane Society and when we took this little guy in for veterinary care, the diagnosis wasn’t good. He was not only suffering from mange but also severe glaucoma that had progressed so much, it had left him blind in both eyes. Because of the severity of his eye disease, Mikey was in extreme pain. Our veterinarians decided that in order for Mikey to be happy and healthy, the best thing to do was to remove the eyes.

After his recovery, we reached out to one of our transfer partners, Michigan Pug Rescue, who specialize in finding homes for pugs. We’d worked with them before and knew they could give him the extra TLC he required while he waited for a pug-loving home.

When the Honorable Judge Sabrina L. Johnson of the 22nd District Court in Inkster saw Mikey on the Michigan Pug Rescue website, she immediately reached out to them. They set up a meet and greet, and the pair instantly hit it off. Mikey and Sabrina quickly became inseparable. Mikey even comes along with his new mom to work at the courthouse, where he has quickly become a favorite of all.

Mikey quickly adjusted to his new home. He gets around without any problems and always keeps a positive attitude. “Sometimes when we’re walking in the park, he’ll get going and run into a tree,” said Johnson. “He simply back up, shakes it off and keeps moving. He’s really has taught me about how to live life.”
