At the end of May the Red Lake Rosie's Rescue van made a trip to Red Lake to drop food and also pick up unwanted animals. That day I saw a young little female shep that broke my heart. She was very hungry and had a broken front leg. You could tell it was an old wound as her leg had healed crooked.

Thank you Dr. Vicki, Act V for helping Dixie.
This is a nasty break. She's lyme positive and scabies too.Dixie's leg surgery was 1 1/2 hours long by a board certified surgeon. He got her leg straightened our almost 100%!
She should do really well. I would estimate her now at 1 1/2 yrs old. Dr. Murphy did an amazing job and I followed up doing the spay.
