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.
Clementine’s sisters Poppy and Nala were quickly adopted. All three are sweet, friendly, outgoing pups.
Clementine developed a limp when she was about 5 months old. . 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 (FHO). The surgery was performed June 15th, and was successful, and Clementine is now completely recovered. Her other hip is normal and she should have no future issues with it.
Clementine runs and plays as normal (with a little deviation in her stance) and is now fully healed. She is pain free and needs no special care. Clementine is up to date on her shots and is spayed. She is well trained, has excellent obedience, loves her crate and is house trained. She loves other dogs and plays hard, and all day long. Clem loves to fetch, play tug, and play in puddles and water. She is a great little dog and will be a great addition to any family!
