Sloane is a four-month-old puppy who came to the shelter with severe deformities in her front legs. This Shepard/Doberman mix is full of joy and ready to be a normal, happy puppy. With surgery, she can be exactly that.
Sloane got some x-rays done to see what was going on in her front legs. The vet diagnosed it as an old injury that had healed incorrectly. Both bones in the lower part of her front leg had fused together. With a successful surgery, she’s expected to heal well and not have mobility issues. However, she is still a puppy and has some growing to do. These injuries and corrective surgery may affect the length of her legs as she gets bigger.
According to her foster family, “Sloan is a big baby who just wants to be a part of the party. She loves to be held like a baby, play with the big dogs, has a great appetite, and her ears have a personality all of their own!”
Sloane not only parties hard, she snoozes hard too.
