Sissy has lived in pain for her whole life.
RDR pulled Sissy from a high kill Texas shelter where she was about to be euthanized due to her condition. Is it her FAULT she's a matted mess, completely neglected, covered in ticks and fleas? She probably hasn't seen the inside of a home in her 2 years of life on this earth. Rescuers did notice her back leg might be injured as she lifts it in this video. What they found underneath all that matted fur was heartbreaking.
If you watched her video or photos you will see, a loving affectionate wonderful girl, just looking for love and a kind gentle hand. Will you help Rescue Dogs Rock save her?
Sissy arrived from Texas this past weekend and is presently at their NY Vet partner for continued medical care. Doctors thought that they would be able to address Sissy’s leg immediately but unfortunately she's extremely anemic and weak at this time. She will need to be stabilized first.
She will remain at the Emergency Vet until she's feeling better. At this juncture , It is not clear if the condition of her leg is just from neglect, a chronic fracture or starvation. Either way she has suffered for a very long time. That all changes today!
UPDATE 3-30-17 : Sissy had surgery yesterday by their board certified surgeon to repair her badly damaged back leg. They thought that with plates and screws we would be able to save her leg, but unfortunate when the surgeon was operating it was apparent that Sissy's knee was flattened like a pancake and there was no way to save the leg so there's was no choice but to amputate. Fortunately Sissy doesn't miss her leg since she was unable to use it for a very long time.
