Here's her story from the pound. I really want to meet her old owners in a dark alley some day. And I am not a violent person.
HELLO, I AM TWIGGY. I CAME FROM THE SAME HOUSE THAT FAITH, JOY AND HOPE CAME FROM BUT I HAVE A DIFFERENT STORY. ONE OF THEM BACKED OVER ME WITH THE CAR AND I WALK WITH A LIMP. SOMETIMES I JUST WALK ON MY FRONT LEGS. IT HAPPENED A FEW MONTHS AGO BUT THEY COULD NOT AFFORD TO TAKE ME TO A VET. IT I S A NEW CADILLAC THAT RAN OVER ME BUT THEY COULD NOT TAKE ME TO THE VET. I WEIGH ABOUT 3 OR 4 POUNDS AND AM A 1 1/2 YEAR OLD FEMALE CHIHUAHUA. I AM A REALLY SMALL GIRL. I CAN WALK BUT I GET AROUND SLOW. I AM ALSO PRETTY SHY WITH NEW PEOPLE. I AM VERY SWEET WHEN I GET TO KNOW YOU AND AM HOPING FOR A LOVING HOME WHICH I HAVE NEVER HAD. WHEN THEY TURNED ME IN THEY SAID IF I GOT BETTER THEY WANTED ME BACK BECAUSE THEY CAN SELL THE PUPPIES I COULD HAVE.
I took her in to the vets and both back legs were broken as well as her pelvis. Her right back leg has formed a new socket and she can use it a little. The left one is pretty useless. Through it all, she is a sweet, loving little girl. She weighs only 2 pounds 7 oz. She needs to gain some weight. I now have to decide my options, but being it has been so long since it happened, they don't look good. A cart is one option, leaving her this way is another. I have the number of an orthopedic surgeon, that is an other, but the vet didn't hold much hope that he could do anything, either. My heart is breaking.
