This gentle German Shepherd was found wandering lost and turned over to Walton Animal Control. We figure she got caught in a trap and had to chew off her own leg to survive.
Without rescue, the only option is to immediately euthanize a dog like this.
She is starved too
Prepping for surgery
The vet team - Dr. Lazarov and Dr. Perry
The bone and tissue had to be cut back and closed over. Basically.
Out for a walk
Taking a rest
Mercy gets around fine on three legs!
Mercy is what we call a "Foster Failure". That's when the foster parent loves the dog so much they decide to keep it themselves!
In this case, Mercy is now owned by Karen Dean, director of Walton Animal Guild.
