   Leave a bone for Champ (ADOPTABLE!)

Quick Bio:
-pound dog-disabled -blind
-dog rescue

Arrival Story:
Hit by a bus and left on the side of the road to die, this sweetheart certainly is a "champ" and a true survivor! Even though she managed to live through the accident, Champ barely stood a chance in the municipal shelter where she landed. FFLI stepped up and pulled her so she could have a second chance at life. Poor Champ's injuries were quite serious - her pelvis was fractured in THREE places, and she had a fracture near her coccyx, a punctured bladder, a black eye, partial paralysis of her hindquarters, a puncture near her ribs, and various other scrapes and bruises. She was an absolute mess and received concentrated medical attention and surgeries at our vet's office. Champ came through her surgeries beautifully and is currently undergoing physical therapy to help her regain strength and mobility. She still has some residual paralysis which hinders her walking fluidity, and she is blind in her left eye (the eye that sustained major injuries when she was hit).

Bio:
Despite all she has been through, Champ ADORES people and loves to be petted and talked to softly. She is terrific with children and has bonded very strongly with her foster mom. Champ is good with some other dogs but can get possessive over her foster mom, so any dog-dog interactions need to be carefully monitored. Champ is a true inspiration and a fantastic, incredible dog. Her beautiful spirit and gentle nature shine through to all who meet her. She has been a model patient and has taken to rehab like, well, a champ! Loving and sweet, she will make a fabulous companion for the lucky person (or family) who adopts her!
