Adopted!

CongRATulations to the Wilhelm family!

An Arkansas-wide plea was posted to try to save this darling little girl in the Cabot shelter. She had a broken leg. A trip to the Cabot vet produced a very poor diagnosis, and the vet’s advice was to amputate the leg because the two bones wouldn’t line up. She has a complete break of both bones in her front leg, close to the paw where the bones are tiny. ResQ wasn’t ready to give up on her leg, so we had one of our vets look at her. He recommended splinting the leg and hoping for the best. But as evidenced from her x-ray, it wasn’t lined up well at all. We opted to send Noogie (also called “Bug,”) to our orthopedic specialist in Green Bay, Wisconsin. She underwent expensive surgery to plate the bones on February 12th. This little girl, about 5 years old, has always had a smile on her face and a wag in her tail. She loves everyone she meets, and the feeling is mutual. This is a very special little girl who deserves a chance at being whole again. Please see more photos of Noogie!

    This is the most loving, happy dog in the world. I hated to see her leave Arkansas, but it was for the best. Now she is whole, and ready to run! She loves everyone she meets, man or beast.

    Nooglebug is precious !!!1
    we just adopted Buffy from New Rattitude who has had a similar situation –compound fracture and successful surgery
    (a five hole plate in her leg) She is happy and doing really well — running around and giving rattie kisses.
    Bless you for saving her. These dogs are so grateful and as we know — They are ALL special.
