I've been asked by the rescue we got Emmi from to forward the word on this sweet girl.
Maybe someone can help her out.
Jefferson City, MO – Special needs (tripawd) lab/weim mix
*Name:* 83 Marley *Breed:* Lab Mix *Gender:* Female Spayed *Age:* 10 to 11
months *Description:* Marley had to be given up by her owner because the
landlord wouldn't allow her. Marley's rear leg had to be amputated because
of an old injury. She gets along well on three legs and has lots of energy.
From the shelter director:
We have a dog that needs some help. *She’s just over a year old and a Lab
mix.* She’s thin and fine-boned so* I’d guess she’s mixed with some sort
of sight hound or like a Weim*. When she came in she had a leg that she
just drug because the owner’s hadn’t taken care of a HBC fracture. We did
a mid-femoral amputation *so she is now three-legged*. She is such a sweet
dog and I adore her, but this is just not the best situation for her. *She’s
anxious in the kennel and loud, plus she’s black so she’s having trouble
getting adopted*. She is really hyper and needs someone that can train
her. Do you have any rescues with some space?
Her picture is on the website or there’s a video too because she was on
KAT Country last week. It’s on the shelter Facebook page or KAT’s facebook
