Truffles's Story...
Truffles is a 2 year old, small 6lb terrier.

Truffles has a sad story that we hope has a happy ending. Truffles was rushed to an animal shelter in Houston, TX after being hit by a car. It seems her family had dumped her, and in the process of trying to find them, she ventured into a busy road where someone didn't see her because of how small she was. Luckily the people who hit her were nice enough to pull over and rush her to the shelter, which many people don't do in Houston, TX. Right away the shelter reached out to us because it was clear she needed more vet care than they could provide. Of course we couldn't say no to her, so we got her to a great emergency vet. After doing many tests they determined that she had fractures her skull, and her back legs weren't working, and she may never walk again. We knew we couldn't give up on this little girl and someone would love her no matter what. Well, we are SO glad we never gave up on her, because she has made a miraculous recovery.

Within 5 days, Truffles was able to walk again. She was a little loopy but it was more than we ever thought would be possible. Two days later she was running! She is now 99% better, as if nothing has ever happened to her. It has been almost a month since she was hit by a car, and she is the biggest trooper in the world. Her cognitive ability seems to be all better and she is physically doing great! Her foster mom cannot stop talking about how much of a miracle it all is. Well, Truffles is now ready to start looking for her forever home, and here is what her foster has to say about her:

"Everybody who meets Truffles wants to adopt this little girl. She does great on a leash and potties while on walks. She has only had one accident in the house and that was the first day she got here. Truffles is seriously the sweetest dog in the whole world. She follows her foster mom around everywhere and is the true definition of a lap dog and velcro dog. Truffles gets along great with the fosters other 2 dogs and loves everybody she meets. She has zero personality flaws. We would love for
Truffles to go to a home with someone who has lots of love to give and wants a dog who can snuggle with them all the time. Someone who can take her for walks and maybe play with her once she is ready, but she is mostly happy just snuggling and being close to someone.
