Hope is a young mixed breed dog located near Austin, TX. She was a stray that was hit by a car in November 2021, had a first surgery shortly after, then a right rear amputation in April 2022. She is currently available through Border Collie Save and Rescue. We’ve been her foster through her rescue journey, and are just amazed at her resilience and determination through it all. She needs slow introductions to new people and dogs, but has been great with my three dogs, my 8year old, and has become friends with all our friends she sees consistently. She is fairly low energy, enjoys sleeping on a dog bed most of the day, but gets zoomies when she first goes outside! She loves sunbathing, anything involving treats, and snuggling on the couch. I will add some pics when I can get it figured out!

She is a really good dog! Since she was 99% three legged for five months before the amputation surgery, her recovery was lightning fast - she was keeping up with my dogs running in the yard, doing stairs, jumping up on furniture, all the day she had her stitches out …. The only difference she noticed was that she wasn’t painful anymore! She is so much happier now!

Yes indeedy!  A lightening  fast recovery for this Happy and joyful sweet girl.

Proof that she was in pain and quite miserable before that bum leg was removed.  The pain of surgery recovery clearly wasn as painful as before the surgery. 

Paws crossed a furever  home is coming g her way soon!

Hugs

Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie too!
