My Name is:  Sugar; 9-10 years old

My Story: Older stray Labs with a grey muzzle like me get overlooked in the shelter, but fortunately Safe Harbor looks out for us seniors. When I got to my foster home I gulped down tons of water and had “to go out” a lot. Safe Harbor’s vet diagnosed me as having Cushing’s Disease, meaning my body made too much of a certain hormone. On top of that I was increasingly sore getting around and x-rays showed I have osteosarcoma (bone cancer) in my hips. I still love to fetch and go for walks. Thanks to medications for both conditions, I’m doing OK in my hospice foster home.
