Paddy Dublin O’Marley (aka P-Dub): birthplace, unknown; birthdate, unknown; breed, unknown. When we first rescued P-Dub we didn’t even know what her gender was, or the color of her hair because she had none.. Due to a rare condition, coupled with malnutrition, her body exhibited signs of hermaphroditism— that’s right, boy and girl parts. She was also covered in a dangerous, zoonotic skin mite that ate away her follicles. Her organs were intact but testicles were beginning to develop. Once she was brought to foster care and stabilized with a proper diet, her hormones began to balance and she has remained a she ever sense.
Should P-Dub have remained a hermaphrodite, we would have loved her just as much (or more , if thats possible) and that is one of the lessons that we learn from her. She is as God made her and we love her for that, just as we love each other for how were are. None of us are perfect or will ever achieve anything like it, but when we move towards acceptance and love, regardless of imperfections, we become closer and stronger—on the same team!
P-Dub was a hairless hermaphrodite when we found her; ion a state that few would rescue much less accept. But she has taught us, once again, that when we take chances on each other and lead with love and acceptance, anything is possible.
Loving, capable, accepting foster families are the glue that binds us—seriously—and without them we would not be able to do what we do. If you like the sound of this mantra and want to become a part of the Mutt Militia, please fill out a foster or volunteer application. Much Love.
