Yip! That’s hello in dog. My name is China and I am a Yorkshire Terrier mix. I moved into what I thought was my new forever home, but unfortunately before I was even able to settle in I took a bad fall and broke my front leg. I was brought into the Ottawa Humane Society by my owners because they were unable to afford my medical costs. They were extremely upset at the thought of giving me up, but they knew that the OHS might be able to give me a chance at using my leg again!
I was pretty upset at having to leave my new home, but the people at the OHS made me feel so much better. They helped control the pain in my leg with medicine and made sure I was able to rest comfortably. A nice veterinarian told me I would need surgery to heal my fracture. I guess that will teach me to sit still next time!
Following my surgery, I was fitted with a fibreglass cast for my recovery. The staff even made sure to wrap it in a pink bandage — my favourite colour!
I am currently resting in a foster volunteer’s home and making regular trips back to the OHS to have the vet look at my leg and make sure it’s healing properly. Once I’ve completely recovered, I will be ready to start looking for my new forever home. I’m so excited, I can hardly wait!
