Laney Medical Fund Baby Girl
Laney was found wandering the streets back in August. It was obvious that there was something wrong with her front leg and she was taken to the vet to have it checked. It would appear that long ago Laney maybe had a run in with a car? Who knows really but long ago she had an injury that was never treated and allowed to heal on it's own. Her leg never did heal and how she suffers from nerve and other damage to that leg leaving it a dangling appendige that she is unable to use.
On Oct. 12th Laney made the first steps towards a new life, in a new land with new opportunities. She travelled from Boxer Rescue LA to Without Borders Boxer Rescue. On October 13th she was off for her life changing surgery and now Laney is a tri-pod. Now don't feel sorry for Laney! She gets along better now then she did before. Remember she has lived as a three legged dog for some time but need forced to live with 4 legs. Now that she's down to 3 working legs she can move no problem. She walked out of the vet's office less then 24 hours after surgery and jumped right in to the van. She's already mastered up and down the stairs.
With this surgery Laney has a whole new life ahead of her. Sure she may not be an agility star or your next marathon runner but sweet Laney can be the very best companion possible. She has a lot of love to give and is looking for that special family to give it to.
Laney is approx. 3-4 years old. She is fabulous with other dogs, both big and small and could probably live with a cat with little training. She is great with kids. She is currently in a foster home with 3 other boxers, 2 small dogs and 3 children ranging in age from 9 months to 4 years old.
If you are interested in taking Laney home please let us know!
We are also looking for donations towards Laney's amputation surgery. Please visit our website to help out:
