Friends to the Forlorn Adopt-a-Bull
Breed: Pit Bull Terrier
Estimated Date of Birth: December 18, 2015
Size: 24 lbs
Location: Dallas, GA
Eve was hit by a car, picked up as a stray by Douglas County Animal Control, and ended up at Kaye Animal Hospital. She had a broken pelvis, hip and front leg. She was in a lot of pain and the pound was opting to euthanize her due to the severity of her injuries, but the vet called us. Luckily, a foster family stepped up for Eve and we were able to take Eve in. We sent Eve to our vet, but Dr Leathers felt as if she would be better off at GVS as he does not have the equipment needed to fix her pelvis. We then took Eve to Georgia Veterinary Specialists to be examined. From the x-rays, it looks as if she had been walking around like that for 2 to 3 weeks as the bones are starting to try to heal. Because her injuries are so old and have begun to heal, the orthopedic surgeon at GVS wants to wait a month to see how it will affect her growth plate. We may have to amputate her rear leg and surgically straighten her broken front leg. On top of her complications from being hit by a car, Eve was skin scraped and diagnosed with demodex mange.
Eve is currently in foster care receiving all of the TLC she needs. Though her injuries are painful and horrific, she has been an absolute angel. All Even wants to do is stand up and give you kisses! She is the sweetest, most loving little lady. Eve is being wrapped in love and spending her days taking it easy with her canine foster sibling for now. She will go back to GVS to revisit the possibility of surgery at the end of July 2016.
