Betty was picked up as a stray with obvious injuries to her back legs – she was dragging herself down the street. She’s unfortunately another case where due to her extreme medical challenges, she was given a euthanasia deadline at the shelter. Thankfully, our rescue partner Real Good stepped in to save her.
“It’s clear that she had been bread several times and not given the care that she needed,” our rescue partners at Real Good said. “…Yet she is the yummiest and sweetest nugget!”
The vet Betty went to examined x-rays and noted that it was one of the worst cases of hip dysplasia he’d ever seen. Despite the pain she must be in, she “moved with grace, gentleness and a smile on her face,” said the staff.
In addition to a lame back end, she has a host of other medical issues that need addressing: terrible skin infection, ear infections in both ears, a urinary tract infection and upper respiratory infection. Betty also was in need of spaying, so she never had to suffer through being bred and discarded ever again.
Keeping Finn donated to her first hip surgery, which she’s recovering from now. She still needs the other replaced once the first one is healed and strong. Betty is estimated to be about five years old and has so much life in her – life she’d love to share with a forever family.
Little miss Betty is in medical foster while she waits her turn on the schedule for her much-needed surgeries. She’s being showered with all the love and affection she deserves – and is giving it all right back to the family. Betty is a lovable girl with a long life ahead of her.
