Naughty pug is lucky that he lives after he has swallowed his owner’s engagement ring

A naughty pug is lucky that he lives after he ate his owner’s diamond engagement ring and left her a £ 2000 vet bill.

Shelby Ann Perry said she took off her engagement ring and placed it on her bedside table on Friday night because it was getting stuck in her locks while she was braiding her hair.

The 26-year-old from Atlanta, Georgia, USA, then noticed that her two-year-old pug Patrick seemed to have something in his mouth next to her on the floor.

After chasing him through the house, Shelby said she thought he hadn’t really eaten anything and didn’t think much about it, because Patrick often “does everything” to get attention.

But after she put her engagement ring back on her finger, Shelby said her heart sank after she realized it wasn’t there – and looking back at Patrick, he immediately thought the worst.

Her fears were confirmed after taking the cheeky pug to the vet’s office, where they discovered the ring in his belly – and warned that it might kill him because of the sharp edges.

Fortunately, Patrick will see another day after vets have successfully removed the diamonds and sapphire engagement ring from his stomach – leaving his owner a $ 2500 (£ 1,935) bill.

Shelby said: “I tried to braid my hair and it just kept getting caught in my engagement ring.

“I took the ring off and placed it next to the bedside table where I sat.

“While I was doing my hair, I saw Patrick slapping his lips as if he had something in his mouth. He will eat everything that is on the floor.

“But he likes attention and will sometimes pretend to chew on something, so I chase him.

“I held out my hand to grab him and he ran away. I literally said “I hope that whatever you eat doesn’t kill you.”

“I was putting on my ring again and he wasn’t there. I looked everywhere and saw Patrick and my heart sank. I immediately thought the worst.

“I went to the vet, thinking that it would have been impossible to eat. But I just wanted to be safe.

“Then the vet told me the ring was in it. I was shocked.

“They said it is too big to pass naturally, and because it has sharp edges, it can perforate its inside and possibly kill it.

“They said that an endoscopy was a lot safer than surgery, so they did the procedure and luckily Patrick was fine. He had no idea of ​​the drama he was causing. “

As the jewelry was brought back, Shelby said that her heart sank when she realized that the large white sapphire and a smaller diamond had fallen off.

She said, “I was upset when the vet said that two stones were missing, but luckily my fiance found the big sapphire.

“Fortunately, we have a lifetime warranty on the engagement ring, so they sent it to be cleaned and repaired.

“It also relates to the smaller diamond stones that we couldn’t find, so luckily they can replace it.

“When I saw it on the X-ray, I was completely disbelieved. It is one thing to hear the vet say that it is in his stomach, and then to see that it is so clear that it has become real. “

Shelby’s fiancée Alejandro Morales, 30, asked the question back in October 2019 and the beloved couple – who have been dating for five years – will make the knot in August this year.

The nurse added that, although she does not know how much it costs, the engagement ring has great sentimental value.

She said: ‘My fiance chose this ring because the sides look like hummingbirds. My deceased grandmother loved hummingbirds.

“She raised me and was like a mother to me. I always wanted her in my marriage, but she died of cancer in 2018.

‘So this ring is very special and has so much sentimental value for me.

“It was a very stressful day. But now I can look back and laugh at the situation.

“I think Patrick was a little angry with me because I had to put him on a diet for a few months, so this could have been his revenge.

“My fiance and I say that this is Patrick’s world and that everyone just lives in it.

“He’s definitely very spoiled. But he is super cute and I love him so much. “
