Shya a 6 year old hound mix, 15lbs is a female hound who has had a rough go. She is a very mild mannered, sweet girl who wants nothing more than love and sweetness.  She was picked up as a stray by animal control in North Carolina. It is obvious that she has been on her own for a while. She is incredibly thin, but we can, and are, fixing that. Our bigger concern is her old injury to her front leg. It was broken and healed in a very unusual way. You can see in the photos how badly the leg healed. We have had her evaluated at the vet and they don't feel she is in pain, although she will have arthritis in that leg. She does walk and put weight on the leg, and sometimes she holds it up. We are in the process of having Shya evaluated by an orthopedic surgeon to determine what her options are.  Right now, it looks like either amputation or surgically re-breaking and re-setting the leg.  Leaving it alone is not really an option because she does walk on it, and this is creating a sore on a part of the leg that should not be in contact with the ground. Please send positive thoughts Shya's way.  She is safe and happy now, resting and eating comfortably in her South Carolina foster home, but has a big decision and long recovery road ahead of her.
 Our hope is to find her a home where she can be the star, rest on the couch and be a loyal friend.  After her leg is addressed, she will be available for adoption.  We would love to have a happy story for this girl!
 Donations are also being accepted to help provide Shya with the best care possible.
