Tweetie aka Firecracker - A Special Needs Rescue Girl

Photos by

Hi I'm Tweetie, and I'm 3 years old. I'm a tiny girl with lots of zip and energy, even though I've been spending a lot of time at the rescue doctor's office. The doctor said that I have a disease that prevents my liver from growing properly. The rescue folks need $2000 to pay the specialists for my tests. Doctor said instead of me smiling for the camera, their machine will take pictures of my tummy and this is called nuclear scintigraphy. I said as long as I get a cookie afterward, they can take scintigraphs of my belly all day long!

I have been diagnosed with hepatic microvascular dysplasia, so I'll be on prescription diet and take a denamarin tablet every day to help me stay healthy and active. I'm just about ready to be checked out of this hospital, but I asked especially to stay a little longer because nurse promised me double portions of green bean jello if I am still here at lunch time. I love toys, running, and giving kisses, and I am a champion wiggler, too. I have so many talents to share, and I'm so thankful the rescue angels came to my aid so I have a long life ahead of me.

Everyone who meets me says they are glad they did! So hurry and get your adoption application in soon for me, Tweetie. I have quite the list of admirers already, including Uncle Mark the photographer. So far my nicknames are: Speedy, Firecracker, Pistol, and CuteyPie!

Please open your hearts and help us to pay for Tweetie's medical tests. This little girl deserves a long, happy and healthy life!
