Wilma is another one of our miracle babies! When we found her in the high kill shelter we did not realize that she had a severely injured back leg. It was not until the foster watched her walk and saw how uneven her hips were that we even realized anything was wrong. Wilma was an surrender, so apparently someone surrendered her to the high kill shelter knowing that she had a broken back leg.
We had the foster get her in for xrays immediately and our worst fears were confirmed. Because of the nature of the break and the amount of growing Wilma still has to do, amputation was the suggestion of more than one vet. The vet who would actually do the amputation wanted to wait and let Wilma grow just a little bit more before surgery.
Meanwhile her foster kept questioning our decision to amputate. She would send us videos of Wilma using the leg more and more. The foster, and we, could see Wilma getting stronger and stronger. We began to have our own doubts! We sent video of Wilma playing to an orthopedic vet in Nashville, along with updated xrays. He looked them over and changed his recommendation!
Wilma still walks with a bit of a wobble, but she shows no sign of discomfort and her injury certainly does not slow her down (though her foster would not mind if it would slow her down maybe just a little bit once in awhile)
Wilma is full of life and joy. She loves to be scooped up in your arms and will give kisses and love. She has never met a stranger, whether human or canine. Wherever Wilma goes, that is where the party is!
Are you looking for a companion pet that will bring immeasurable joy to your family? Wilma is the one for you!
