Pet Shop horrors
name is Chia and I am very sad. I cannot run and play like a normal puppy
since I was rescued from a puppy mill. The reason I cannot run and play is
because both of my front legs have been dislocated and have been injured for so
long that I now need surgery to repair my legs. Since I am only a baby the vet
thinks that the surgery will help me to walk again. I am very sweet and
lovable and have tons of puppy personality. My foster mommy carries me around
in a pouch, but I would much rather get to places all by myself! Although I
will need lots of prayers I also need sponsors to cover my surgery expenses. I
hope that someday I will be able to run and play like all my other doggie
friends. As soon as I get my surgery I will be available for adoption.
Chia got her casts off on Friday and is doing pretty good. She is
still in a
lot of pain so I have just been holding her for the last three days.
wouldn't think that three pounds would get heavy but after
I have learned to do soooo much with one hand. At night we prop
on pillows and she sleeps on my chest. I cannot believe how spoiled
is! We have made her a bean bag style pillow and put it inside a
basket in case she rolls she can't fall. So she is in her beanbag
when she is
not in my arms (I have to shower sometime!)
She wants NOTHING to do with anyone. She just wants mama to hold
her. We have
both cried a ton since her surgery because I can't stand to hear her
pain and we are running on very little sleep. It reminds me of my
children when they were young. I cried every time they did.
The vet visits
are terrible and while I realize that they don't mean to hurt her but it
be done. She has her second pain patch on and will go for her third
Thank God I have my mom and the gals at the vet clinic or I wouldn't be
to work. They have all been excellent in taking care of her.
She gets her
stitches out next week and the pins come out in 6 weeks.
Keep sending your prayers our way because
it's still a long road!
