Beautiful girl needs a ride-wants to share her love

Help a sweet 3-legged Cavalier get the medical help she needs in New Orleans. Flexible dates/times.

"Baby Girl", now known as "Bella" was born in a puppy mill with a deformed front leg. She was scheduled to be PTS, but a volunteer persuaded the miller to keep the pup with her mom for 6 weeks so she could come into rescue. Rescue had her leg amputated and fostered her during the recovery. She was adopted, however a recent visit showed that she was not being properly cared for, so she had to come back into rescue for the second time in her short life.

A rescuer in New Orleans who specializes in three-legged cavaliers has agreed to take Bella if we can get her to New Orleans. She will get:

* top medical attention at a University vet orthopedic department
* special diet to address her poor nutrition (rickets) and weight issues (overweight)
* daily hydro-therapy
* a strap on artificial limb to help her "good" leg recover
* lots of love and attention

But we need to get her to New Orleans first!

Bella is in Hot Springs, AR, but can easily get to Little Rock. She's spayed, UTD on shots, and heartworm neg. If you're going to New Orleans any time soon and would like the company of a sweet, crated cavalier, please email me at mzthomas "at" uams.edu.

I wonder if you could buy a greyhound ticket for the dog. I'd chip in and I'm sure others would too

The little lady has her transport in style-flying with an escort (gracious donation by a LS member) :)
