Blind pug adopted by judge becomes a viral sensation
Many special-needs dogs, unfortunately, have a hard time finding a loving home due to their disabilities.
The Honorable Judge Sabrina L. Johnson of the 22nd District Court in Inkster, Michigan adopted Mikey after seeing his details on the Michigan Pug Rescue website.
Johnson told MHS that within days Mikey adjusted to the layout of her home and was able to get around without bumping into furniture.
When outdoors, even if he does bump into something, he just "shakes it off and keeps moving."
According to MHS, "Mikey's beginnings weren't as positive. When he was surrendered to MHS, he suffered from severe glaucoma which left him blind, as well as demodex mange. The glaucoma caused Mikey extreme pain in his eyes, and MHSveterinarians decided that in order for Mikey to be happy and healthy, the best thing to do was to remove the eyes."
After treatment, he was put up for adoption. Now, Johnson and Mikey are inseparable. Mikey can even be seen in the courthouse where the staff adores him. Johnson says Mikey has taught her "how to live life."
