Trying to help a friend rehome 3 legged dog that she rescued from a trap.
This is an email I recently got from a friend of mine (who was also our realtor if you notice the references to home sales). I thought I would check on here to see if anyone in the SC/GA area was interested. This woman is a saint to animals so thought I would help her out. I can email pictures of the pup (very cute btw) to anyone interested. Also will delete this immediately if its not legal in this area.
Yes, I do believe your house was waiting for you. Would love to meet you for lunch, but I'm swamped right now. Could I have a raincheck? Had the grands all weekend, then 3 appointments and closing today, 3 appointsments tomorrow, wrote an offer tonight, ads to write, and animals to "manage". I say "manage" because I brought my mom's siamese cat (she needs a home) to my house (other cat was bullying her) and am nursing a 3-legged-dog back to health. Had to have my huskie put down. Just about did me in. Found a wonderful young female dog injured from a beaver trap. She (Lucy) lost her leg, but after about $1700 in vet bills she's healthy and ready for adoption, spayed, all shots. Keep your ears open for a good home for her. Attached are before and after photos.
Glad you all are happy. Makes my job worthwhile.

This woman has a guaranteed spot in heaven of you ask me. She is a wildlife photographer on the side and is one of those people that I'm sure could make a coyote friendly. She rehabs and rehomes several animals each year but has never tried to rehome one that was missing a limb. She told me on the phone that the pup (Lucy) doesn't even miss it but she's worried folks won't even take her into consideration.
See if she can contact the local news media, with a short story about the danger of leg traps/rescuing a dog caught in one and now ready for a home. Those stories seem to generate a bunch of people all clamoring to adopt the dog in the story.
Oh man, she has the same shape face as my girl, who coincidentally was from Okefenokee Humane Society (found her through petfinder)!
Too bad I'm far away and not in a position to acquire any more animals at this point!
Oh No! She looks so innocent. Ah well I guess we don't know what sin that bed committed that may have required destruction. :-) I personally have a bed shredderthat weighs less than 6 lbs and yet can make mince meat out of a bed that size.
When I was growing up our family dog had a back leg caught in a trap. (40 years ago) She went missing for several days and we had given up seaching for her when she suddenly appeared. Happy ending...she went on to live many many years with 3 legs after the vet took care of her. Vet medicine was not what it is today but she came through it. It's amazing how well they can adapt. Never slowed her down one bit.
Sounds like this is a very lucky dog indeed!
