Regina is a special dog. Stoic, strong and a survivor. She was discarded on the streets by her owner where shortly after she was hit/ran over by a vehicle. The family that found her could not afford her treatment and after months she was healed to where she could walk again. The extent of her injuries we're not known until we rescued her. After x-rays it was learned that her paw had been shattered in many pieces and miraculously had healed in a way that she has learned to live with. Unfortunately aside from amputation which is not necessary there was nothing that could be done. She had a broken toe which had healed backwards and was amputated as it caused her great pain. Although we considered amputating her paw our Vet and Regina continued to convince us that she will be fine.. She runs, plays, jumps and is able to do all normal dog activities. With continued walking and playing she becomes stronger and can use her paw normally. After long periods of running and playing she will rest her paw and regroup again. Her paw will never regrow hair and unfortunately is not pretty to look at. We have purchased booties for her which we are training her on now. She is a very happy dog never phased by her unfortunate accident. It has been 2 months since we rescued her and now all she needs is a loving home with a family that understands that disabilities are not to be feared but conquered. show less
