A special THANK YOU from some of our 2016 Rescue Tails
BAYLOR:  Baylor had severe internal injuries.  He suffered a massive diaphragmatic hernia from a blunt trauma.  This caused his liver and intestines to migrate into his chest cavity which would have been fatal without immediate surgery.  Baylor spent a week in the ER.  After a long road to recovery, he was adopted into a wonderful home!
CECIL:   Cecil was only 5 months old and 8 pounds when he was hit by a car and suffered  severe de-gloving injuries where skin and tissue were torn off down to the tendon.  He also suffered a fractured pelvis, a fractured femur, and a crushed ankle joint.  Cecil had orthopedic surgery to address the fractures and intensive wound care to heal the skin injuries.  After several months, he is now interviewing for his perfect forever home!
BLAIR:  Blair had a gunshot wound to her front right leg.  She was severely anemic and running a high fever and needed an immediate blood transfusion.  Blair had surgery to remove the bone fragments and then a hard cast on her leg to help heal the fracture.  She has recovered like a champ with no permanent damage!  She is now an adorable, happy girl, who is ready to find her happy forever home!
VINCENT:  Vincent had a very painful condition where both the upper and lower eyelids were turned in, so hair from the eyelids rubs the corneas causing partial blindness.  Vincent had bilateral upper and lower eyelid entropion surgery which went very well. Today Vincent can happily see his new parents!
CYBILL:  Cybill had a rare bone infection in her front left leg.  Bone biopsies were done, specialists were consulted, and IV meds were given.  Still the infection continued to spread at an alarming rate.   In order to save Cybill’s life, her leg had to be amputated.  She has learned to maneuver just fine on 3 legs, and her awesome foster mom is now her forever mom!
TIPPER: Tipper’s badly injured leg was amputated at the shelter, but it got infected, the skin started to gangrene and Tipper almost died.  It took several weeks of meds, daily hydro-therapy, and a skin graft, but now Tipper is as good as any pup on her 3 legs.   She also has a new mom who spoils her dearly!
GENGI:  Gengi had a severely broken pelvis which required orthopedic surgery.  In addition, her eyelids required entropion surgery.    After a long recovery, Gengi found her forever home with two doctors…how perfect!
MAGNOLIA: Magnolia was severely malnourished and weak when rescued, in addition to having a broken tail from trauma.  Her tail had to be amputated, and she recovered and now has a cute little powder puff tail.  Being a Husky mix, Magnolia is in heaven in her new home near Jackson Hole Wyoming.
DORA BELLE:  Dora Belle was found living under a house.   She was a scared puppy with a miserable skin condition causing sores and missing hair on most of her body.  After several medicated baths and antibiotics and steroids, Dora Belle began to feel better, and her hair grew back in.  She is now a lovely lady with a new mommy as well, and life could not be any better!
TEJAS:  Cute little Tejas had an old injury to his eye.  A visit with the ophthalmologist revealed that Tejas was blind in that eye, and the best option was to remove it.   But this minor handicap has not slowed him down.   His new family says he has the love and character of a 100 lb dog!
SKITTLES:  Skittles came to us at only 11 months old and 11 lbs with a limp.  It was found to be an old fracture on her left femur. The vet had to re-break the joint where it had tried to heal, then align the pieces in their proper position, and place pins to stabilize the joint.  Skittles is now able to run and play with her new parents and K9 sibling!
