"I found her in in my front yard emaciated and limping and my neighbor helped me catch her because she is fast! Animal Control was there looking for her. They checked for a chip and I told them I would keep her because I know with an injury she would not last long, that I would be keeping her.
I took her to the vet the next day and got her shots, deworming powder and Frontline. She should be 3-5 years old, seems to be over bred. She was just seen by a surgeon and she believes the best thing for her is amputation because she gets around so well now. Doing the other procedure where they try to reattach the ACL, has no 100% chance of it working and very expensive. So I feel the best way to get Gracie back on track the fastest, this will be the best thing for her since she still doesn't have a lot weighing her down right now.

So her big surgery day will be July 17th! She will get a free spay (since she's a pit bull from the SPCA), her amputation, micro-chipped and the last few shots she needs to be caught up for her new start!

I wanted to find a rescue group that will take her because I know that would be the best thing for a pittie with an injury. I just haven't had much response from the rescues and so thankful that Marley's Mutts is going to help! I know she will make someone very happy to be in their family and her appreciate them, as much as I can tell she is thankful for me saving her.
A bit about Gracie. She loves all the affection you can give her! So she would be awesome for someone without any other animals and lives alone and wants to shower a girl with love. I also think she'd be great with a couple with 1-2 smaller dogs and/or older children. It just needs to be a family with lots of love to give. I don't think she'd do well with a cat in the family, she just wants to chase them.
Gracie is really smart and can jump a 4 foot fence, even with an injury. She gets spooked a bit when on walks, when other dogs bark at her. I think this is from her being on the streets so long. So I always have to be alert and keep her close just incase and I just talk to her to calm her and she's ok. She also likes to do a more brisk walk because of her injury but really loves to still run anyway. She still gets excited and wants to play fetch, tug of war and play chase.
She is so docile and polite. She knows how to "sit", "come" and "no". She actually will lay down when she sees the leash come out but she's always still excited to go on her walks. Most of all, she loves her tummy rubbed and to cuddle any chance get. Her favorite place is her bed, she seems like she feels so safe in it."
