Willow is a female miniature bull terrier, about 2 years old and 40 pounds, who came to C.A.R.E.S. last month as a stray after being struck and severely injured by a vehicle. One of her legs was very badly fractured in the accident, and it was initially feared the leg may have to amputated. Luckily, our vet was able to save the leg, and after a complicated and expensive surgery, this sweet little lady is now looking for her forever home!
Willow should make a full recovery, but still has many weeks of recuperation ahead of her, and will need a family that can keep her on bed rest and minimal activity for that time, as well as ensure she gets her meds and makes all her follow-up veterinary appointments. She will also need to be spayed before she can be officially adopted, which has to wait a few weeks until she’s more fully healed from the leg surgery.
Willow is an adorably sweet little girl, with tons of healthy young energy and lots of love to give, and adores all kinds of people. She has done okay with most other dogs so far, and so far hasn’t shown much interest in the kitties. The only issue noted is that she does exhibit some food/treat possession behavior. Willow will need a family that can work with her on that behavior, and once she’s recovered, be able to provide her plenty of daily exercise, attention, and affection, to keep her on the track to being a happy, healthy, well-behaved doggy citizen. We would also prefer a family who has experience with her breed and with caring for animals post-surgery.
If you are interested in adopting Willow, or even fostering her during her recovery until we find her a forever home, please contact C.A.R.E.S. today! Willow’s adoption fee is $300, which includes her spay surgery, microchip, flea treatments, de-worming, and up-to-date vaccinations.
