Arrival Story:
We are foster parents for Animal Rescue. I was asked if I could handle a special needs puppy. I named her Heidi and picked her up from the hospital this am. She is est 7 to 9 wks old. Heidi weighs 3.2 pounds today 3/1/07. She was dumped and then hit by a car or maybe thrown from a car on the roadside. She crawled into a yard where she was obviously at least fed but no medical care given for her shattered leg/hip. Turned over to rescue and now my pleasure is to help this precious, spirited baby get well and go to a good home. She had extensive Ortho surgery and may need more . She is happy and wants to play. She must be crated for a while but we will make sure she gets lots of love and knows she is loved. I know we will have her for at least 6 weeks. It's going to be very hard to let this one go.

Bio:
Heidi will be going to physical therophy after her Orthopedic surgery. It is so sad to see the pin sticking out of her little hip and the staples down her tiny leg. Correction, she was glued together after surgery not stapled. She does not let it slow her down. She is happy to be alive and is forgiving of her circumstance in life. She has a Guardian Angel that guided her through the scary events in her short life. I wonder if our sweet Missy is her angel? UPDATE!! We have adopted Heidi and she will be with us as long as she lives. We love her dearly.

Forums Motto:
Get all the love I can.

Heidi's journey to her Forever Home.

I don't know how the years went by so fast. Our sweet baby has a silver face now. Her crippled leg is going to cost her her life in time. Her spine has arthritis on it and the hip has too. She has a new med and is doing great now but hade a real scare a few weeks ago. I thought we would have to put her down because of the pain and loss of use of her back legs. The pain was so bad she trembled and drooled really heavy. The med is working for now but our vet warned us it is something that can't be fixed. We are enjoying her as we have from day one. LOVE you Heidi. The smartest dog I have ever known and we have rescued over 300! Three hundred!

Back in Oct she had a scare. Couldn't walk! Vet gave her injections and med by mouth and we started taking her in once a mo for injections. A week ago she was yelping with pain and her good leg was not holding her up well. Blood work was ok, X ray showed 2 last disks are fused together and has calcium on them. Put her on Medicam daily and she is doing great, She is at 16 pounds down from 22. I don't know why. Less treats but I think cause she has been in pain. Doc said in no words that that her time is running out. I know that but I love her and don't want to let her go. She is an amazing little dog as smart as a dog can possibly be. I/WE love her.

Heidi can't walk or even stand up! Normal to bolt out of kennel in the morning and go see if anyone left a treat. Can't walk and can't stand except did stand when I put her out. Pooped and peed 7:45am.Gave her Tramadol for pain. She feels hot like a temp. She Won't drink water.

2:45pm Ate 1/2 cup of food I gave her with extra water in it. Will give more food with med. Vet called and told me give her Caprofen so did that. We are very worried about her. She has been crippled all her life and I'm so scared her back is out of line and we will have to give her up to the angels. I pray not. Love her so much!!!
