Jane found herself at Fulton County, scared and alone. Luckily, she caught the eye of a volunteer that took pity on her shy, lack of confidence in November 2016. Over the next month, she become a volunteer favorite because of her sweet nature and in January 2017, Fulton asked one of the volunteers to foster her as Jane had become urgent and at risk of euthanasia. Right before Jane was able to break out of Fulton and into foster care, she got attacked by the other dogs in her kennel and had to go to the emergency vet where she stayed overnight to be monitored. Jane had puncture wounds all over her body and with so much trauma to her legs, they had become swollen and very painful. Jane went into foster care on February 1st. She has had it rough, but her puncture wounds have healed, the swelling has gone away, and she has confidence and is well aware that she is loved in her foster home. Although her superficial wounds have healed, Jane still had a deep limp in her back left leg and would often trip and hit her face on the ground if she walked more than a quarter mile. Her foster mom took her to an orthopedic surgeon herself as Fulton does not have funding or technology of specialists. It was determined she had a luxating patella and would require surgery. Jane had bi-lateral luxating patellas and required specialized surgery that Fulton cannot provide. We agreed to take Jane into FTTF and get her the care she needed.
Jane is an amazingly resilient and incredible loving lady. She gets along well with the other female dog in her foster home and is scheduled for TPLO surgery at our vet.
