Ria has overcome horrible abuse and come out of it still smiling and full of life! If you're looking for an energetic, cuddly companion, she might be perfect for you. She loves to lay her head on my chest, put her one front paw over my shoulder to give me a hug. Then she tilts her head up and licks my face! She gets along great with other dogs and even cats. It takes her a bit more time to get used to humans because of what she's been through. Read her blog to learn her whole story.

Name and location: Susan - Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (I know an organization that has sent dogs to the US for adoption in the past, so international adoption might be possible!)

Age and Date of Amputation: ~8 months now, amputation September 8, 2023

Breed and sex: Female, Malaysian mix (sadly, the hardest to get adopted even if they have four legs because they're supposedly just common street dogs) typically about 35 pounds but Ria is smaller than most and won't be more than 25 pounds

Cause for amputation: Her paw was beaten with an iron rod and was so badly infected the entire front paw had to be amputated.

If I could afford a third dog, I'd totally adopt her. I'm not sure Tempest would forgive me if I brought another dog home, either. Ria seems like such a sweet pup and she's going to be a nice size. I hope she gets a great home. And thank you for being such a generous foster for her. Fosters who take on animals with special needs are truly special people.
