Leona: Broken Leg, Severely Emaciated and Pregnant

Leona: Broken Leg, Severely Emaciated and Pregnant

A good Samaritan spotted a dog trying to cross the street in Mercedes, Texas. She was unable to walk, as if she had just given up. The Good Samaritan immediately went to pick her up.

But, when rescuers took her to the vets, they were all surprised. Not only was her hind leg broken and she was severely emaciated, Leona, as she is now named, is pregnant.

She is so weak and barely able to stand on her own. Thanks to the Good Samaritan and Dallas DogRRR, Leona is getting the medical she (and her pups) need. But, they need your help today.

Although her leg can not be saved and she must come to Dallas for surgery, she is attempting to stand and no longer incontinent.All her attending vets that have cared for her agree that if she can get through this she could have a quality life. Operative words are “if we can get her through this”.

With every purchase you make, you can help fund Leona's medical care. This will not be easy for Leona, given that her leg is broken, severely emaciated and pregnant at the same time.

Leona was found with her belly full of dead babies, a destroyed leg and an unrepairable eye! I can not imagine carrying 13 dead fetuses, blind in one eye, unable to walk due to a destroyed leg and a broken tail. Leona spent the last 12 days in the ICU in critical condition because the 13 dead fetuses had started decomposing inside of her causing Leona to go septic. She was then strong enough today to have the surgery to remove her dead leg and an eye. She is a true fighter! She is staying strong and getting around the clock care. We are continuing our campaign to raise funds to cover the thousands and thousands of dollars in vet bills. Please consider getting yourself a Save Leona product below!
