Hi, my name is Pearl! I am about 7-8 years old and lived my entire life outside before coming to rescue. I am so happy to be living in a house with comfy beds and people who care about me. Everyone who meets me just loves me and says that I am a sweet girl. I also have some new canine friends at my foster home.

I have been a very good, sweet girl at the veterinarian. I came to rescue with an issue with my back legs. I saw a physical therapist and was referred to an orthopedic surgeon. I have a condition called Grade 4 Bilateral Subluxating Patella. This is a condition where my kneecaps are severely rotated outboard on each of my hind legs. I had limited use of my back legs and had resorted to getting around by dragging my back end like a seal or by hopping on one of my back legs.

I had surgery on my first leg in June and am now going to physical therapy. I am doing really well and can even climb up on the bed now. I will need surgery on my second leg this fall. I also had entropion surgery and was spayed prior to my first orthopedic surgery.

The rescue has been fundraising for my surgeries. We have raised enough to cover my first two surgeries, but need to raise about $4,000 more for my second surgery and second physical therapy. Yikes!

Please visit our website and consider donating to my fundraiser if you can help me out. Any amount is greatly appreciated!

I won't be available for adoption for quite a while because of my surgery and physical therapy. If you are interested in adopting me when I am all better, please fill out an application and ask for Pearl!
