Pitty. Shot 5 times by police in a scuffle with her owners. She lived with kids and another male dog. Who I leaned about last minute. I couldn't leave him behind so took him too.
Protecting her home, Spotty thought she was doing what she was supposed to do. She heard a noise and came around the corner to keep her family safe. What Spotty encountered, however, was much more than she ever imagined. She was immediately shot in the leg, by no other than a police officer. Her front leg had been shattered, into a million pieces. Our partner vet received her, bleeding everywhere, unable to stand, horribly painful, and yet Spotty seemed to appreciate all who were helping her. Once the x-ray was taken dread spread all over everyone in the office. Her leg was in very small pieces, something a typical bone plate could not put back together. Amputation was not an option, Spotty was 90 pounds, 20 pounds overweight, and would not be able to support herself. Spotty went to visit our Board Certified Orthopedic Surgeon the very next day, a very special plate was used to basically support her leg until the pieces could heal themselves. She has been kept crated for months waiting for her bones to heal. She has also been put on a very strict diet. By pure MIRACLE her leg has healed! And she has lost a grand total of 22 pounds! Spotty is a new dog, she loves the vet staff! She is leery of strangers but warms up quickly. She does well with other dogs, she has done well with the 1 clinic cat. She is very sensitive about her leg, understandable, and she is slowly but surely gaining muscle back on her leg. Spotty has been finally medically cleared to travel and start her new life!
