found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Tara came into UYR with what we thought was a fracture of one of her rear legs - we were fearful that she would need an amputation and posted her story on FaceBook and YouCaring in the hopes that we could raise the $1,500 we knew would be needed for an amputation. Thankfully, it was a congenital defect that cannot be surgically corrected, but Tara skips and sometimes puts that leg down and runs like the wind.
For all the wonderful and very generous donors that donated the funds for what we thought would be surgery - THANK YOU to each and every one of you! Tara did need all vaccinations and a spay surgery and the excess monies collected will be used to pay vetting expenses for several of our foster dogs who are under-funded with their vetting bills.
Some of the wonderful donors also cross-posted the needs of Tara and gifts started rolling in for her - it was amazing and appreciated and made all of UYR's rescuers even prouder that we do what we do for these little helpless and homeless doggies. Tara was so happy to go to the park and meet one of her benefactors who brought all the beautiful gifts for this princess. THANK YOU EVERYONE!
UPDATED BIO 09/07/2013: Tara is a beautiful 1 year old (age changed when seen by vet) 6 lb little girl; she is being fostered in Suwanee, GA.
UPDATE ON TARA (GA)! Tara is doing wonderful! She has been spayed, had all her vaccinations and will be ready for adoption very soon! Tara is 1 year old and weighs only 6 lbs. She has a rear foot that has a congenital defect, but it surely doesn't slow her down. Tara has almost recuperated from her spay surgery, and is running around the house like nothing happened! She is still very much a puppy and is the cutest, sweetest little thing ever. She is very sweet and loves to cuddle with her person and be right on their heels - a true Velcro doggie.
Tara is not house-trained, but its a work in progress and she does better each day. She appeared to have never had a leash on, but now when the leash comes out, she stops so that it can be clipped to her harness, and is off and running! She still needs to learn leash manners, but that will come in time. Tara also loves belly runs and has learned to sleep in the crate at night - what a smart and sweet little girlie! Tara wants to thank all the wonderful people who generously donated to her medical bills.

Tara came from a high-kill shelter where she was scheduled to be euthanized; thank goodness UYR came to the rescue and pulled her just hours prior to the deadline. Tara has a congenital deformity of one of her rear feet, but the leg is functional and she has normal sensation in her foot. She will put it down when walking/running and do a little skip. She is missing some toes on that foot as well. At this time, amputation is not being considered since there appears to be no complications with the use of the leg and foot.
Tara had to be shaved down completely when she arrived at the vet because her coat was so matted that they could not do a complete evaluation of her. She will be spayed as soon as she feels better. Tara currently has a nasty upper respiratory infection and is staying at the vet while they administer antibiotics. She appears to be a very sweet little girl that someone just threw away because she wasn’t perfect. But in our eyes, she is a Perfect Princess. Please check back in a few days for an update.
INITIAL BIO 08/27/2013: MEET TARA! She is a beautiful 1 year old 6 lb little girl; she is being fostered in Suwanee, GA.
Tara just came into rescue today from a high-kill shelter in GA where she was scheduled to be euthanized at 5pm today if a rescue group didn't step up to take her. Tara has a congenital deformity of one of her rear feet, and she gets around just fine (and fast!) on 3 legs at this time. We will be scheduling a consultation to see if surgery is an option, but at this time it doesn't appear to be.
Please check back in a few days for an update on Tara after her Foster Dad gets to know her better.
