Sassy is a little love bundle ! She came to us with a torn ACL and heartworms, and an x-ray showed a bullet fragment in her leg. We can’t imagine the pain she suffered. She came through surgery and heartworm treatment like a champ. She is 3 years old. Sassy loves everyone she meets. She is completely house trained, walks well on a leash, is eager to please and is ready for her forever home!!
Sassy became very depressed when they returned her to the other shelter, and eventually the other shelter put her on the euthanasia list. She was taken out of that shelter by an animal rescuer but she would not walk, would not lift her head. She had given up and was in pain.
She was taken to an animal hospital who did x-rays and found she had been shot about a year ago. The gunshot wound was to her right rear leg and the bullet fragment is still there. It broke the bone and did nerve damage. She's fine now except she has been boarded in a temporary facility for over a half a year now and is in need of a foster or forever home soon.
Sassy is not in our shelter but if you are interested in fostering or adopting her, please fill out our application.
