Name: ~Ruby~

Breed: Chesapeake / Lab Mix

Sex: Female

Age Diagnosed w/Addison's: 4 year old

Comments: Ruby was diagnosed with Addison's 12/05/01 and is rebounding quite nicely thanks to a quick diagnosis and treatment. This picture was taken two weeks before her diagnosis, while she was playing in the snow in Red River, NM at Thanksgiving. We look forward to learning more about Addison's disease as a part of the list!

Name: ~Popeye~

Breed: Shih Tzu

Sex: Male

Age Diagnosed w/Addison's: 5 or 6 years old

Comments: Popeye is about 7 - 8 yrs of age and after rescuing him from the auto accident, he ended up minus one eye and a stiff leg. Shortly thereafter was diagnosed with AD. (2 yrs ago) He truly is handicapped in more ways than one but such a trooper! We call him Popeye since he only has the one eye.

Name: ~Mia~

Breed: Shepherd mix

Sex: Female

Age Diagnosed w/Addison's: 6 years old

Comments: This is Mia - our "tiny" girl of 99.5lbs!!! A very sweet loving dog diagnosed 9/01 with AD. She is the first AD dog for her vet - so thus a challenge for us all. She hasn't lost her joy of playing ball ot taking long walks with my husband. To Mia, these two things are better than any medicine!!!

Name: ~Jesse~

Breed: Labrador Retriever

Sex: Male

Age Diagnosed w/Addison's: 2 years, 3 months old (Jan 4,02)

Comments: Jesse lives for his ball and you can throw it for 23 1/2 hours a day and he will be happy! Since his diagnosis he still loves to play ball but does rest alittle more. He is back to 95% normal which is an answer to prayer.
