Mamie is an absolute gem! She is incredibly sweet and happy girl. She likes everyone she meets, including other dogs and even cats.
Mamie is easy to take everywhere, since she walks well on a leash and also enjoys car rides. Mamie is also very content just hanging out at home on the couch. She loves cuddling up on a lap any time she can.
Mamie is house trained and eager to please. The only place she seems to be unhappy is in a crate. But there is really no need to crate her, since she is well behaved when home alone.
Mamie would do best in a relatively calm home with older children, since a lot of commotion does seem to frighten her. But generally speaking, her tail is always wagging and she will capture your heart with her charm!
Sadly we found a mass in her mouth that was determined to be cancerous ( either ameloblastoma or squamous cell carcinoma) and due to the location of the mass complete removal is impossible without a partial mandibulectomy (removal of the lower jaw). With high rates of recurrence after excision we do not feel it is worth putting her through that for a maybe cure. Eventually the tumor will invade the rest of the jawbone and began to break done the bone. Mamie will need to be monitored and managed until it is her time to say good-bye.
HOWEVER, at the present time you would never know there is anything wrong with this sweet girl. She still is a little love and the sweetest companion. She may have many years of love left to give!
