Hallie is a 7 month old female spayed chocolate pit/ terrier mix. She has had a rough start to life. She came to the shelter and had ringworm and an upper respiratory infection. She immediately went into foster where her foster parent noticed her hips were abnormal. A pelvic radiograph revealed a painful condition called Legg Calve Perth. With this condition the neck of the femur is painfully resorbed by the body. Once Hallie was well from the ringworm and upper respiratory infection, she had her first femoral head osteotomy (FHO) surgery. Hallie tolerated physical therapy very well and became full weight bearing on her hip. During the second FHO, the sciatic nerve was discovered to be damaged from her condition and compensation. Her right leg had to be amputated. This has not and will not slow this wonderful girl down. She was up walking immediately after recovery. Hallie has so much personality and so much love to give. Please give her the chance she deserves! Long term effects will be arthritis but this can be controlled with diet, exercise and medications. <br/> <br/>Hallie is the sweetest, most well-behaved puppy. She is working on potty training and doing quite well despite her health issues. She is very loving and thinks she is a lap puppy. She will make some lucky person a great forever friend. She is available foster-to-adopt or adoption.
