FEATURED PET

Mia


***5/12/15 UPDATE***NEW PHOTOS BELOW***

MIA HAS HAD HER SURGERY AT LVVSC ON 4/11/15 WITH DR.REXING AND THE SURGERY WHILE EXTREMELY DIFFICULT AND COMPLEX, WENT EXTREMELY WELL!! MIA HAD TO HAVE A METAL PLATE MOUNTED TO THE BONE TO KEEP IT TOGETHER ALONG WITH 9 SCREWS!! THE HARD PART HAS BEEN KEEPING THIS LITTLE ONE CONFINED TO STRICT CRATE REST EVER SINCE THEN. MIA HAS NO IDEA THE EXTENT OF HER INJURY AND WANTS OUT OF HER CRATE TO PLAY AND RUN. WE ARE HALFWAY THERE, WE HAVE AN APPOINTMENT ON 5/20 WITH DR.REXING FOR RECHECK  XRAYS TO SEE HOW  THE BONE IS  HEALING. IF ALL LOOKS GOOD MIA MAY BE LET OFF CRATE REST, YAY!! WE WILL WAIT A LITTLE BIT TO HAVE MIA SPAYED AFTER WHICH SHE WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION. WE DO HAVE A WAITING LIST OF ABOUT A DOZEN PEOPLE WHO WANT TO ADOPT HER SO IT'S GOING TO BE TOUGH CHOOSING JUST ONE. ONE BIG THING POTENTIAL ADOPTERS NEED TO KEEP IN MIND IS, MIA MAY NEED THE PLATE REMOVED FROM HER LEG AT A LATER DATE. SOMETIMES THE PLATE IS BOTHERSOME AND THE BODY REJECTS IT AND IT NEEDS TO BE SURGICALLY REMOVED. I AM NOT SURE WHAT THAT WILL COST BUT I AM GOING TO GUESS AROUND $2000.00  I AM GOING TO GET A QUOTE FROM DR.REXING AS TO COST IN THE EVENT THE PLATE NEEDS TO BE REMOVED BUT THE NEW OWNERS WILL BE ENTIRELY RESPONSIBLE FOR THE COST, I WANT TO BE UP FRONT AND MAKE EVERYONE AWARE OF ANY POTENTIAL PROBLEMS OR COSTS. SOMETIMES THE BONE CAN GET INFECTION AFTER THE FACT AND REQUIRE A LENGTHY COURSE OF ANTIBIOTICS. JUST A FEW THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ADOPTING MIA. FOR NOW MIA IS A HAPPY GO LUCKY GIRL. WE ARE TEACHING HER A LITTLE BIT OF OBEDIENCE WHILE SHE IS HERE. DONATIONS AT THIS POINT ARE BEING USED ON THINGS TO KEEP MIA OCCUPIED IN HER CRATE 24/7 SUCH AS DEER ANTLERS, DOGGIE PUZZLES, SLOW TREAT DISPENSERS. WE ALSO NEED TO PURCHASE A SMALL DOG RUN TO CONFINE MIA TO ONCE SHE IS RELEASED FROM STRICT CAGE REST, SHE CANNOT GO STRAIGHT TO RUNNING AROUND LIKE A MANIAC. SO IF YOU WOULD  LIKE TO DONATE PLEASE DO AND KNOW THAT THERE IS STILL THINGS WE NEED FOR MIA. DOG BEDS/CRATE PADS TO PUT IN HER CRATE AND THE SMALL DOGGIE RUN ARE ANOTHER THING WE NEED. A KARUNDA BED WOULD BE NICE TOO SO SHE ISN'T ON THE GROUND. ANYWAYS,  YOU GET THE POINT :-)  THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO DONATED TO THIS SPECIAL GIRL, SHE WILL BE FOREVER GRATEFUL!!!

Mia came to LVDDR when her owners surrendered her due to her having a  broken leg. Apparently Mia was in her backyard going potty when her owners her a yelp. When they went outside they noticed her limping and a trip to the vet confirmed a badly broken femur which required immediate surgery and was going to be very expensive. LVDDR was contacted to take the puppy into rescue and try and raise money for the surgery. The estimated cost is going to be between $2000.00 and $3500.00 depending on what they need to do. This precious baby is only 4 months old and we are going to do everything we can to save her leg!!! Please help us help her by making a donation to pay for  the surgery. Every little bit helps.

Post op radiographs

Mia's leg is healing, staples have been removed. Here we are performing physical therapy on the leg to keep the muscles healthy and viable.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge. When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine and our friends are warm and comfortable. All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing: they each miss someone very special, someone who was left behind.
They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; his eager body begins to quiver. Suddenly, he breaks from the group, flying over the green grass, faster and faster. You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon our face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into those trusting eyes, so long gone from your life, but never absent from your heart. Then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together...

The Las Vegas Doberman and Dachshund Rescue group was established in honor of my beloved pets who have gone on to the Rainbow Bridge.
