Vet Diary - Phoebe's Happy Ending

A beautiful lurcher found straying was brought to our kennels at Coxhoe by council wardens. She was unable to use her left  front leg due to a previous injury which meant that her wrist could not straighten even under general anaesthetic.

Her leg was making it awkward for her to stand up and lie down. She had already adapted, as you can see from the photograph of her standing, her right leg is taking all the weight directly beneath her, and it was agreed by both Stray Aid’s veterinary surgeons that the useless leg should be amputated.

Thankfully, a lovely lady who met Phoebe along her journey decided that she was the perfect addition to her 2-legged and 4-legged family, a 3-legged dog! In the picture below, she is meeting the stunning Wolfie who has agreed that she will fit right in to their loving home.Although the operation seems quite drastic, it means that this beautiful girl, now named Phoebe, would be able to find a new home without the risk of complications arising.

There is nothing more rewarding than seeing a beautiful dog like Phoebe, who has had such a tough start, going on to a fantastic new life. We are very grateful to her new family for giving her this second chance.
