Lucy is a senior Chihuahua that was injured and abandoned and left in a box with a note in front of a local vet office. FFF was notified and the dog was transferred to us for evaluation by our veterinarian, Mike Evans, at Animal Care Clinic. It was determined that she had a long term, untreated three broken bones in her front leg and frozen shoulder muscles. The prognosis for saving that limb was nil.
Medically, amputation of the leg was the only option. Since this was a long term untreated injury, she had already learned to compensate with her other three legs. Dr. Evans did the amputation and Lucy is recovering well at her foster home. She will become available for adoption after October 31st, 2015.
Lucy is a sweet, loving senior dog that loves to be carried and cuddled. She has adjusted to her foster home with kitties and is learning to use a pee pad. She would be ideal as a companion for a quiet adult home and particularly, good companion for a senior person(s).
