Hercules & Yoda

August 12, 2012 @ 11:20 pm posted by AbbyS

Hercules (13 yrs – right) and Yoda (12 yrs – center) came to Colorado Pug Rescue because our owners had decided to put them to sleep because of their medical issues. Luckily, a kind-hearted soul at the shelter contacted CPR and asked them to help us before it was too late. CPR was literally a life saver!

Hercules went blind when he was very young.  Hercules has adjusted quite well because he has been blind almost all of his life. Yoda went blind a few years ago, most likely from diabetes. Due to his diabetes, Yoda gets daily insulin injections and he eats a special food.

Hercules and Yoda are pretty attached and are enjoying spending their golden years together. The third musketeer (left) in the photo is their foster sister Peanut.
