Arrival Story:
Asha came to us starved, scared and horribly hurt. We were asked to foster her because she wasn't thriving at the Nebraska Humane Society and needed a nice home to heal in. She was not using her post-op leg, and they feared she would lose it. We took her in and never could let her go. She is so sweet-natured, lively, smart and loving. It's taken us a whole year to bring her back to her best potential, but here she is. ADOPT A RESCUE!

Bio:
My name is Brimful of Asha. I was found by the Nebraska Humane Society at the beginning of November 2003. I was starving, and had a dislocated right leg. The Nebraska Humane Society's evaluation stated that either I was thrown from a car, or was hit by a car. They thought that I was just under a year old, between 8-11 months. They provided me with a femoral head surgery, but I had already decided that I was going to disassociate from that leg. Also, the experience I had been through was so traumatic, that I was not thriving in the kennels, and they sought out a family to foster me, and hopefully get me to use my leg. It was a long process to start to use my legs. If someone touched my leg, I would get a little nervous, and lick their hand a lot. Sometimes I would sit or sleep, with my right leg in an ackward position and not even notice. That sort of behavior really worried my people. They gave me a place that was my own in every room. No other animal in the house has that. I took full advantage of that! I slept ALOT. In order to build muscle mass, they found a place in Lincoln called Kenl Inn that had a pool for dogs and a hydro-therapy programs. I HATED it. But, it gave everyone hope to see me using my right leg in the water, at the correct angle, and with good rotation. After a month of hydro-therapy, I really started to drastically improve the use of my leg. On walks, I also improved the use of my leg over a span of 5 months, from 0% to 100%. I almost never favor that leg now, except when it's wet outside with rain or snow I'll lift it up - I don't know why I do that....I just do. I do agility now and I just love my new family and my sister Neelah. Check us out: http://www.geocities.com/themerleg irls/TheMerleGirls.html
