Fiona and Shrek came to Friendship Animal Protective League needing immediate Veterinary care. This brother, sister duo had been found as stray dogs. They both appeared to be around 5 months old and both of them appeared to have had broken legs. Knowing there was no time to waste, FAPL took Shrek and Fiona to one of our partner vets to be checked out.
The broken legs Shrek and Fiona had both appeared to have been old injuries, that healed the wrong way. Unfortunately, this meant neither of their legs could be saved. At the age of 5 months old, Shrek and Fiona had to have their front right leg amputated as that would be the only way to provide them long term comfort. While it remains a mystery how both these pups
suffered the same fracture to the same leg at the same time, they were turned in as strays so we never found out. While possible abuse is always the assumption, what we did know is that both pups were safe with us, eager for love and affection and patiently were waiting for a new home!
November 4th proved to be a lucky day for both pups, as their new adopters walked through the door. Shrek and Fiona both were adopted, into separate homes, by families who had seen their stories on our social media. Both dogs seems to be adjusting into their new homes and they each had their sutures removed are all healed from their amputation procedures!
Below you can enjoy the update Fiona’s new family provided on how she is doing:
“Fiona is amazing!! We actually renamed her Nala, because she is beautiful and strong! Nala already had a vet appointment to get her sutures and staples out. Here are some pictures of how she is doing in her new home. Thank you so much for taking care of her!”
