On December 6th, a lab we named Shyla came to Red Lake Rosie's Rescue in the evening from Ponemah. Merri Jo had found this young female black labbie under a burned up mobile home. She was hungry and very frightened, but trusted Merri Jo enough to be rescued.
The next day, she was carried to the transport pickup and she got to Act V that evening. It was a dream come true for Shyla. She went from suffering, hunger and loneliness within 24 hours to a warm bath and belly rubs, as well as much needed medical care.
Dr. Vickie took the first photographs when she arrived in Bloomington. Dr. Vickie X-rayed Shyla and discovered 2 breaks in the leg and also buckshot in her abdomen. Thank you to Merri Jo, John and Dr. Vickie for getting Shyla on to a good life. This is what rescue is all about, "teamwork brings results."
ACT V ADDS:
Sweet, shy Shyla is with our most experienced foster family. She has a lot of buckshot in her abdomen and had pups not too long ago. Her right femoral head is busted apart and I think there is also a break in the femur just below it. Her leg is much shorter as a result and it is an old break. I think she'll have the same surgery as Isaac had. Will keep you posted on that.
Shyla had her leg surgery on Monday the 17th- and went back to her foster home.
Her leg was saved. :-)
