Polly's Story...
Name: Polly
Age: 2-3 years old
Disability: Deformity or injury with her 2 front legs
Breed/Weight: Shepherd/Lab Mix 45 pounds

History: Polly was found abandoned with her 3 puppies on a busy highway, a kind Samaritan pulled over and got the pups and mom to safety.

Polly got to spend some time with a foster home while waiting for her spot to open up at PWD, this is what her foster mom had to say about her. "Polly is a strong female, but does get along good with both male and female pups, she is very playful and enjoys her toys, but like many abandon dogs she seeks attention from humans, loves people."

Polly just arrived and will know more about her personality as she spends time here. Polly was heart worm positive and has been treated.

UPDATE - 2/8/16 - Polly has been seen by both of our orthopedics and our Physical rehab therapist and we are all in agreement to not pursue amputation of Polly's leg. We are looking into a prosthetic devise to help Polly. So stay tuned for more Polly updates, as we discuss and meet with Animal Orthocare, who specializes in prosthetics.

UPDATE - 4/15/16 -Unfortunately Polly did not take to her prosthetic limb. She decided life was good without it, and as you can see from the attached video, she keeps up with her 4 legged friends just fine.
