Special Needs...Sarah was rescued from a high kill shelter.. She needed immediate medical attention. She was found as a stray with a dislocated hip. She is very young, only 1 year old at most... She weights approx 35 lbs. We rescued her and took her to the vet, he put her hip back in place with a warning that she needed an orthopedic surgeon consult, and probably needed surgery. We did consult with a orthopedic specialist and since her hip has now stayed in place and appears to be well placed in the socket, he said no surgery was needed. Sarah is still recovering... as there is still bruising which is causing her some pain. She will be available for adoption soon to the right family. It needs to be the perfect family who is willing work around her condition. For one.... she has a hard time with slippery hard floors.... a home with carpeting is preferred. She loves to take walks... and she is very good on a leash... but she takes slow short walks. Stairs are not good for her leg.... so we are looking for someone with a ranch home. She needs a home without small children.... and a home where someone is home most of the time. A quieter home. We do not know what her future holds... the orthopedic surgeon has indicated he is very hopeful that she will fully heal and not have any more problems.... However we can never guarantee such a thing. She will be available for adoption around 12/15. You can put in an application now to start the process. Her adoption fee is $150
