Gypsy saw the specialist and they confirmed that the small fractures would heal on their own. However, they did determine that Gypsy has a torn cruciate and will need surgery to repair it. This is what is causing Gypsy the discomfort. She is scheduled for the cruciate repair on August 8th. Please consider donating towards Gypsy’s care. This girl has been through a lot and deserves this chance.
Shortly before being transported to AABR, Gypsy bolted out the front door at her temporary foster home in WV and was grazed by a car. She has a small fracture on her rear leg. When Gypsy first arrived at her new foster home in Maryland, she was very nervous, unsure, and in some pain. She has now started to relax and is showing her silly, sweet, and playful nature. Gypsy loves to snuggle with her foster mom and give kisses. She wants to run and play, but is not able to put weight on her leg at this time. Gypsy is scheduled to see our orthopedic vet on Tuesday to review new X-rays and determine a plan for her fracture. We will post an update following this appointment.
Gypsy is a 3 year old girl who was surrendered to a shelter by her owner and will be transported soon to AABR. Gypsy is currently in a temporary foster home and is doing great! She does well with other dogs and is living with young children. Gypsy is also doing fine with the cats in the foster home. She is reported to be a fence jumper, so should not be placed in a home with a low fence. Gypsy will be brought up to date on all vet care and we will post more information once her foster mom gets to know more about her.
