Little Simone is a great little poster child for what should never happen to a dog, especially one this small. She has a great personality after she learns you will not hurt her. She was at a municipal shelter in California on the list of those who will not make it unless a caring group like TRACS steps up to take her. She had been hit by a car and had enough damage that the owners did not come and get her or never found her, hard to say. But she has a pelvic fracture and some damage to her femur bone joint. The veterinarian says that this injury has to be fixed first of all by rest and natural healing of the fractured pelvic bone. After that fracture is healed inside, then a surgery can be preformed to reduce the friction at the top of the femur head. then she will be back to normal. The vet suggests we go ahead and adopt her out to a quiet home where she can get the rest she needs and some well deserved TLC. After a month, TRACS will pay for the Femural Head Osteotomy surgery to correct her ball and socket joint. If you have a quiet and caring household and would like to help out this very cute little 1 year old girl, do let us know. Her $250 adoption fee will include the price of her surgery.
