On 11-2 I was texted a picture of a cute little Lemon Beagle that was found as a stray in Tennessee and was in the caretakers garage. She was going to go to the local over crowded shelter soon. We found a foster home and I reached out to a former adopter who now lives in TN and actually was not far from where this little beagle was. On 11-3, Julie picked her up and messaged me that she had a bad limp. She went to the vet on 11-4 and x-rays were devastating- a bad hip dislocation and a bad old break. The amount of pain this little dog must have been in at one time.
On 11- 6 we were able to fly little 18lb Kacey to Illinois for foster care. She had her exam and blood work on 11-12 and after much discussion, we are going to have to amputate Kacey's back leg. She's a sweet little dog and she should do well as a tri- pod, but it's just another huge surgery we will need help with.
In the mean time she is being medicated for suspected tick borne disease and is enjoying living in her foster home and getting to sleep in bed.
We hope we can find some thoughtful folks to help us raise much needed funds for her care. It's been quite a year for dogs needing special surgeries.
