Ran over and left to suffer in agony and pain – this was humanity’s present to Joy on October 4, 2016 – World Animal Day. She was rescued by SPAZ volunteers and was taken to the clinic, with two shattered legs and pneumothorax cause by the impact of the crash. A sign outside her kennel’s door warned “caution, in severe pain”.
She went through three painful surgeries and a treatment with very heavy antibiotics, because her front leg was also infected by a very aggressive virus. Her recovery seemed to be never ending. Her foster mum Elisabeth took her swimming every day for weeks and had to drive her to the vet every other day. Joy finally recovered and can now live up to her name. Elizabeth had promised her that one day she would run again, and she did. She still limps a bit sometimes, but her legs are healing fine and she is not in pain anymore.
She is an excellent dog, house trained, friendly, sweet and funny. She is finally ready for her forever home. If you wish to adopt her please contact the charity at: firstname.lastname@example.org or message their Facebook page. Donations are always welcome (PayPal: email@example.com)
