We love our magical Fae girl. At just two-years-old she has experienced so much in her short life. She was found rurally with an incorrectly healed back leg break. It was already causing her pain and we had to work with a surgeon to try and bring her some relief. She had her leg surgically plated and straightened in an effort to keep it. During that time, we also learned she had crystals in her urine and needed to eat a special urinary diet to stay healthy. She is so sweet that every effort is worth it. Just look at those eyes! She would prefer to be the only dog, but is open to meeting potential dog mates. She has been cat tested and nonreactive with cats.
It was later in the evening when the car pulled up with Fae. They had found her in the middle of the road rurally and wanted to get her somewhere safe. They could tell her leg had been severely injured and didn’t want her to be euthanized because of it. As you know, that is not what we do! We were happy to help and evaluated her chances at success. We try everything we can to get our dogs and cats ready to be medically successful in homes with no surprises for our adopters! Her most successful longterm option was to straighten her leg. During her rehabilitation, we also discovered she had crystals in her urine. Without a special diet, she would be at high risk of developing stones. We encourage any interested adopter to work with their vet to determine what diet will help her be most successful in their longterm care!
