In temporary foster in Forest of Dean
This little sweetheart is looking for a special home and due to her ongoing therapy needs we have decided to look for a permanent foster home. Four month old puppy Hope, thought she had enough to cope with, simply surviving on the hostile streets of Bulgaria, yet when suddenly one day, someone shot her in the spine, leaving her for dead, life on the streets as a disabled puppy became impossible.
Our vets have discovered that in addition to the bullet lodged in her spine, she had an Edema on her spine, from a prior trauma, most likely from a beating, and their veterinary opinion was that it was not the bullet causing the paralysis, only the Edema.
The prognosis does therefore seem good for Hope, our vets believe that she will walk again, yet to do that, Hope needs a loving understanding home, willing to help her with physiotherapy.
Hope is very friendly, sweet and loving personality although is a little shy of people she doesn’t know . She likes to play with other dogs, and was cat friendly whilst in her original rescuers home, so should still suit a home with a cat. Hope is currently 22kg, born around September 2013. She is currently incontinent, yet does have full nervous reaction in her lower body – a good indication that her incontinence can be resolved with therapy.
With the help of her new family, we are optimistic that little Hope can cast off her cart and learn to walk and run again, just as every youngster should. Is there anyone out there willing to give their heart and home to this sweet little angel and invest time in teaching her to walk again? Please contact us for more information or phone 01594 530327.
Please share this on social media to help us find Hope her very special person, thank you!
** We are just a very small team here in the UK, so we are currently only able to consider applicants from Gloucestershire, Wiltshire, North Somerset and South Wales due to the practicalities of journey times for ongoing back-up and support. We apologise if this leads to disappointment, however we have found through experience that more local adoptions do not overstretch our limited resources. Thank you for your understanding!
