Default My new poor broken Twiggy (sad)

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.

Some pics of her

OMG this breaks my heart.
I cant believe some people!!

I really hope she can just get a wee cart to walk about on or something else can be done for her.
She deserves a life god love her, and to be loved like she should have been in the first place.
She looks so sweet! x

Oh bless her little heart and YOURS TOO! She is so lucky to have you.
Those people have no right to have pets.

That's hideous and sickening.
She's an absolute angel and so are you for taking care of her.

The cart is very effective. I hope that can work out for her.

Karma will do a number on this people, at least. It would be a shame if their
address leaked out.

I love her face, and I think karma will take care of you as well.

So sad and infuriating. People's lack of respect for life just never ceases to amaze and sicken me. On the other hand people like you never cease to amaze me either.

She's a beautiful little girl. I sure hope that once you've rehabilitated her she gets the lush life she so obviously deserves. My heart goes out to her and you. Thank you so much for all that you do for our precious creatures.

This story just made me cry. Poor little girl. Sometimes Im ashamed to be part of the human race. I can't even think of the pain she must have gone through. Just awful.
