Little SweetPea came to us from the Cumberland County Animal Control Center. Lucky for her, the pound (which is a very High Kill Shelter) has Ann, who works very hard to try to find a place for the animals to go. This little girl was born missing her back 2 feet and half of her tail. How could we say no to this cutie?
We immediately got her to our vet to see what her health situation is.
She is approx 6 weeks old (that is on 6/29/12), the vet feels that the bottom of her legs were caused in utero from the umbilical cord getting wrapped around her legs and cutting off the circulation etc. She has osteomyelitis (which is a bone infection) and a fractured femar. Other than that she is actually in decent shape.
As you can see in the video, not having her 2 feet does not slow her down at all.
