Selena's Lucky Day

Selena arrived on March 11 from Ponemah as a surrender. This little sweet shepherd mix was allegedly hit by a car two days before and had a broken leg. The owners surrendered Selena so she could get medical care. Paul and Phyllis went into action and brought her all the way from Ponemah to the Red Lake Rosie’s Rescue.

Selena was immediately transported to the local vet to receive a diagnosis and get help. It was determined that there was nothing they could do but amputate the leg. We were sad that Salena may have to lose her leg.

When Dr. Vickie learned about Selena, she and ACT V stepped up to the challenge and took her in. Selena had orthopedic surgery the following Monday, which was the day before St. Patrick's Day.

We can't help but believe the "luck of the Irish" was with her! We are so thankful that Red Lake animals have good friends that are willing to help animals like Selena. She now has all 4 legs and is on the mend.

Take a look at this beauty!
This cute pup is SELENA, and she is heading to our door.
Selena got hit by a car, preliminary x-rays show a fractured right leg / knee, and she's bopping around on three legs.
She is safe and sound at Red Lake Rosie's Rescue, and we're planning for surgery on Monday.
In the meantime, her foster family is ready to go; her pain meds are on board, and we get to love up this smooshy puppy face very soon.

So go ahead, give her a big ACT V Rescue Welcome!

March 15:
Selena arrived late yesterday afternoon from Red Lake Rosie's Rescue.
She is very cute! She wiggles and bounces around, all on three legs, and has a playful personality.
What else would we expect from a puppy, right?
She is a little banged up and has a wound on her broken leg. We vaccinated her, fed her, and tucked her in for the night. We are planning surgery for tomorrow.
Happy Sunday!

March 18:
Selena's knee does not belong 'over there.'
This was her pre-op X-ray ~ surgery is over and all is better. More later!
She is settled in her foster home.

March 19:
(But still ouch!)
Selena had a great ortho team, and is expected to rehab well.
Remember, she's only a puppy!

March 21:
Shhh... it's early.
Good morning from Selena.
We hope your Saturday is quiet and peaceful.
(Aren't puppies sleeping the best?!)
