Alli’s (aka Baby Hazel’s) Story
Alli came to us as a joyous, playful and earnest little 4 month old. She was a stray who had found a temporary home, but after being hit by a car and both of her hind legs basically dragging behind her, she came into CCAAF because her family felt they could not care for her. Though in serious pain and a little shy, we found her bright-eyed and curious and very happy to be tended to, fussed over and loved.
She had been known as ‘Hazel’ due to her beautiful eye color. She appeared to be a full Border Collie, a relatively rare ‘red merle’ color. But now she found herself with not only a broken hind leg, but two. Still, over the course of receiving treatment for the legs, she would not be kept down. She was ever courageous, always ready to explore and tackle the world with a fierce persistence, no matter how small her world was in a given moment.
The right leg healed very nicely. There were complications with the left one, however, resulting first in a ‘peg-leg’ which she dutifully made the best of, refusing to be sidelined. But ultimately several veterinarians agreed that the leg really had to come off.
Meet the newest member of the CCAAF family. This is sweet Alexa. She was brought into animal control and the staff wasn't sure she would survive the night. They cared for her for a week and saved her life.
She has now been in our care for a couple of weeks and has started her mange treatment and her lime/sulphur dips. She has a rescue waiting for her as soon as she is healthy enough for transport.
She is one smart little girl. She leashed trained herself and hates to go potty in her room!
Pet of the Week!
