Leah is a six-year-young
terrier/doxie mix surrendered to a shelter
by owners who had severely neglected her.
According to her owners,
when about three years old, she jumped off a bed
and has not been able to walk since then.
For the next three years
SHE LIVED IN A PLASTIC TUB
(as seen in the video),
sitting in her own urine and feces.
Leah has a skin infection
on the inside of her back legs
from sitting in urine and
a large sore on her back
that was left untreated by her owners.
Yet despite the fact that
she has suffered at the hands
of the people who were charged
to take care of her, she is a sweet,
loving girl who readily gives kisses,
loves receiving affection and
welcomes the attention of other dogs.
And while she may not have
use of her back legs, this video shows
that she manages pretty well
with her front end!
Of course, a cart would make
her life even better.
Leah has no bladder or bowel control.
She would require an owner who could commit to keeping her clean
and showering her with love. As she is only three years old,
this would be a long and serious commitment.
If Leah is lucky enough to find a new home, transportation will be provided.
She will go to her new home up-to-date on all required vaccinations.
We know how much attention and hygiene care Leah will require
(and I know how much work - and how rewarding - this can be,
having had Daisy2Legs in our lives for 14 years),
AND AS OF SATURDAY AFTERNOON, SHE HAS A HOME!
THANK YOU TO ALL WHO RESPONDED TO
AND/OR PASSED ON OUR URGENT REQUEST!
WHAT DOES THE FUTURE HOLD FOR LEAH?
