Story, personality, temperament:
Abby was standing in the middle of the road, somewhere in the area of Tomar and she presented a miserable site. One of her back legs was up and she was very skinny. She looked as if she has been starving for a long time and as if she had had an accident of some sort…
We took her into the car… We could not leave her there…
This is what we have learnt about her a few weeks later. She must have indeed had an accident. An accident that paralysed nerves in her tail, back and one leg. That leg was broken and it grew badly, it is always up in the air. There is a wound on her tail that does not heal as she has no sensibility in her tail. And the worst is, as she has no feeling in her anus, she does not realise when she pooes. Basically she eats, she digests, and the poo goes out of her without her making an effort to flex the muscles. This can be a problem if she lives in a home as she does not control it….
There is no way to save her leg or tail. With time she will develop arthrosis in her leg and it will ache her. So it is best if her leg and the tail are amputated. She will be submitted to a surgery and this is where we need your help to financially meet its costs…
What we can tell you more about Abby – she is a lovely dog! She is gentle and sweet with people, very friendly, very affectionate… She gets along with other dogs… So unfair that this happened to her. Like this she will never find a home…
