Clementine and her two sisters were dumped by the side of the road in a plastic bag. They were about 2 months old, and in relatively good condition. Good samaritan and friend Keri Peyton found the pups while walking her dogs, and brought them home.
The pups are sweet, friendly and outgoing. They are great with other dogs and people, and have basic obedience behaviours. Clementine is up to date on her shots and is now spayed. Clementine developed a limp a few weeks ago. It got worse, and x-rays showed severe damage to her right femoral head. The bone appeared to literally be disintegrating. She was diagnosed with a condition called Legg-Perthes disease. Cause is unknown, but believed to be genetic. Due to its rapid onset and severity, the head of the femur had to be removed in a procedure called a Femoral Head Ostectomy. The surgery was performed June 15th, and was successful, and Clementine is recovering well.
Clementine will need about a month to recover from her surgery and will be available for adoption then. She will be able to run and play as normal once fully healed. She will be pain free and will need no special care.
