Purdy – A Puppy Mill Rescue

Filed under: Animal Admissions, Rescues & Transfers — atlantahumanesociety @ 2:42 am

Purdy is a gorgeous, white Boxer who was originally rescued from a puppy mill, where she was only kept to make her previous owner a profit. She came to us and was immediately a staff and volunteer favorite. Shortly after she was placed up for adoption, we noticed her limping. After a few x-rays, we found that she had a cruciate ligament in her back left knee. It required a very expensive, orthopedic surgery, which is a service our vets at AHS cannot provide.

We reached out to local vets and rescues to see if anyone would be able to help us. We were extremely lucky to find Dr. Craig at Lake Dow Animal Hospital. She offered to help us with Purdy’s surgery! Purdy has gone through her surgery, and is recovering wonderfully in a foster home. Despite the Dr. Craig’s orders of restricted activity and bed rest, Purdy wants to walk around and follow her foster parents everywhere. Once she has fully recovered, she will be placed up for adoption, and find the forever home she deserves!
