Meet our Salty Dog for the month of September, Shadow. Shadow is a 3-year-old female German Shepherd who was pulled from the County Miami Dade shelter after an urgent plea was sent out about euthanizing her. Poor Shadow had a broken leg, a mammary tumor, and a tooth with an exposed nerve. She also needs to be spayed after the urgent surgeries are performed. Despite all this pain & neglect, the rescue who transported her from the shelter (SHARE) said she is very sweet and could tell from the first time they save her that she deserved a second chance at life.
Shadow will be undergoing surgeries shortly to fix her leg, remove the tumor, extract the tooth and a root canal. After surgery, Shadow faces a long road of recovery and will need a medical foster. We have received an estimate (with rescue discount) of approximately $5,000 for the surgeries alone.
The Rescue that saved Shadow is low on funds and still dealing with a previous patient (Molly)’s serious medical issues but could not let Shadow suffer in the shelter. Our biggest needs right now are funds and a medical foster for this sweet girl.
As of Nov 1st: Shadow has made a full recovery on both her leg and root canal and is now up for adoption!
