Zoey can teach us all a little about loss and courage. Before she came to us, the person she'd lived with all 11 years of her life moved and turned her into a shelter. That's bad enough right there -- losing your home and your person when you are no longer young. She may have wondered if anyone would want her now.
And there's more. Zoey had a problem with one of her back legs. She held it up constantly and seemed to be in pain. We took her in and asked a veterinarian about her leg. The vet determined that Zoey had had unsuccessful knee surgery in the past. Instead of fixing the problem, the surgery had made things worse, leaving Zoey with a unusable and constantly painful leg.
On advise from the vet, we decided to remove the bad leg. Fixing the knee was no longer an option. The best we could do was remove the pain.
Plunky little Zoey came through her surgery fine and soon was getting around fine on three legs -- and with less pain. But now she had to wonder who would want an 11 year old yorkie with only three legs?
Zoey knows she still has plenty to offer as a pet. This brave girl is hoping that the future will bring her a better life. She's friendly, housebroken and eager to give all her love to someone who will love her back and offer her a soft lap, a comfy bed, a few toys and tasty food.
Zoey will be at the Kirkwood Petco Saturday, September 20, from 11 to 2. Come and meet her. You'll fall in love.
