Please help us help Mia, She came to us with a broken pelvis and multiple breaks and splintered bones in her left hind leg. There could be many complications to try to fix her leg in surgery because there are so many chips and splinters. Mia is a pug/ Chi mix and is very resilient. Even though she has the broken pelvis and broken leg we have to fight to keep her down at potty time since she is on strict crate rest. Mia is currently in a foster home with my sister. She gets along great with other dogs and is a sweet sweet girl.

This is what the vet says about her injury

Thank you so much for your support!!

Mia has a severely fractured right femur; a dislocated right hip; multiple pubic and ischial (pelvic bones) fractures; and bilateral sacroiliac dislocations. The pelvic fractures are not likely to cause problems other than possible narrowing of the pelvic inlet (could cause trouble with going to the bathroom), and they should heal on there own with extended confinement. The sacroiliac luxations may be corrected via orthopedic surgery, but since Mia is already walking on the left limb, this is probably not necessary and not worth the risk of complications. In our opinion, the best option for treating the fractured and dislocated right limb is amputation. This is because Mia is already walking well on 3 legs, she is quite small, it is a rear limb (less load-bearing already), and the surgery to stabilize the fracture fragments would be very difficult and could result in non- or malunion.
