AUDREY is an Australian Shepherd who was hit by a car and was surrendered to our vet from Animal Control. She is almost a year old and weighs about 45 pounds. Audrey has been spayed, is up to date on shots, has been wormed and is on monthly heartworm prevention. Audrey is house trained and crate trained. She is a friendly, sweet dog once she gets to know you, but she is a little reserved at first. She really loves other dogs, but we would not recommend a home with cats. She loves to go for short walks and she walks great on harness and leash, but she will pull and choke herself if she is walked with only her collar and leash. Her right front leg was hurt when she was hit by the car, but after several x-rays the vet could find no broken bones. She has not put any weight on the leg until just recently at the end of October, she started putting it to the ground and taking a few steps with it. Her leg could have permanent nerve damage and she may never regain get full use of it, but it seems promising that she has finally started to use it so we are hopeful that she will get full use back.
