MARIAH IS SPECIAL NEEDS AND HOSPICE Mariah is neurological  . She is also a hospice dog due to cancer. She requires an adopter that will be able manage both using holistic methods including Chinese herbs and keto diet. This is not optional. We are very specific about the home we are looking for her to have. We understand this may be a very narrow fit, and appreciate any support towards her care, Mariah was a stray at a local shelter. She presented with mammary tumors on both chains . They have been removed but her biopsy shows that the cancer has spread to her lymph nodes. Her prognosis is not good. That being said we feel that with alternative methods we can manage her life and hopefully her heart may give out before cancer over takes her. Mariah is a shy gal who take s a little time to warm up .  Once she does , she is very sweet. She enjoys the outdoors but is likely to run like the wind and should be kept on a leash at all times. She has neurological issues and may appear to be blind. She can see, she simply looks off due to her issues. We are volunteers who work full time. If you have any inquiries we will try to get back to you within 48 hours. We require home visits, therefore we only adopt within the Chicago metro area. If you would like to apply for Mariah, please email us at .
