MY NEW FAMILY:

I was adopted by 2 lovely women who live in Cartago. They saw my post and wanted to give me a loving home where I would always have company. I love my new life and I have a sister. She is a 2 year old husky and we play together all the time. Where I live now there are lots of trails to hike and we go to the dog park every day!

MY STORY:

My former owners hit me, severely neglected my health and called me ugly. While I was with them, I was hit by a car and suffered a painful injury to my rear foot. Without seeking veterinary attention, my owners decided to cut off my paw. As a result I suffered unnecessary pain and the stump created friction injuries on my other leg.

Aside from my leg, I also suffered from tick fever, anemia and malnutrition. To avoid re-injury and further complications, PATA's vet amputated my damaged leg. Due to my poor health, it was almost 3 months after my rescue before I was well and strong enough to go through with the surgery. Now that I've had the procedure, I can move around more easily and enjoy being pain free. I love going on walks and hikes and playing with my friends. PATA say I'm am very brave and a loving, special soul.
