A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME:
I am a sweet natured, happy dog despite the challenges I faced in my early life. The people at PATA say I am very resilient, strong and brave. I am also affectionate and very loyal. Although I have old injuries in my pelvis and hip areas, I have no problems getting around and love going on walks, hikes and adventures! Due to my mistreatment, I am still wary of strange men, however once I know and trust you, I am relaxed. I like other dogs and enjoy playing with my doggie friends. I love life now and get excited about many things from meal times to walk times and cuddles I would be happiest in a home with another dog or with an owner who has a lot of time to spend with me.
My former owner severely neglected me. While I was with them, I was hit by a vehicle and suffered a broken pelvis and dislocated hip. I was in alot of pain but my owner didn't seek any veterinary attention for me. As a result I suffered unnecessarily and the way my injuries calcified put a little pressure on my spine. I was completely incontinent when PATA rescued me and had sores on my legs from lying in my own urine.
Aside from my injuries, I was emaciated and also suffered from tick fever, anaemia and malnutrition. Now after a couple of months of treatment I am so much better! I can run around and jump, and I am enjoying life again. I have been recuperating well at PATA and enjoying lots of love and attention!
They say I'm a very special soul. Come and meet me and see for yourself!
