HER STORY
Our little Lucy Lu did not get a “box of chocolates” when she entered our world. This puppy mill girl was a cast off by her commercial breeder to a Craig’s List puppy broker due to what we now know are luxating patellas in both rear knees. This is what is causing the splayed walking action in her hind quarters. In addition, Lucy Lu suffered a significant and untreated injury to her front left while at the mill. This untreated injury has resulted in a disruption to the growth plates in her front leg so one bone is growing and the adjacent bone is blocked from growth. Lucy Lu also has an untreated cherry eye.

Despite Lucy Lu's orthopedic challenges, this little spitfire does not let her medical issues stop her from enjoying her life as a puppy. You can view a video of Lucy Lu's walking issues at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gFZ2jn6U7Uc&feature=youtube_gdata_player

HER RESCUE
Lucy Lu's was passed from the mill to a puppy broker who listed her for sale on Craig’s List. Her guardian angel Morgan, a vet tech student, responded to the Craigs List post and could not bear to see her in the broker’s home with ten other dogs in need of care. She purchased Lucy Lu to free her but realized she would not be able to provide for Lucy’s reconstructive needs after consulting with her clinic. She contacted adoptaBull for help and we brought this precious little girl into our program.

HER TREATMENT & PROGNOSIS
Lucy Lu has a medical marathon in front of her but, if she completes the race with our care and financial support, she will be able to achieve a long and wonderful life as a normal and happy bulldog. Untreated, her rear legs will develop premature arthritis and she will lose the use of her front leg due to the abnormal bone growth rate.

This adorable pup begins her race on July 1. Her first surgery will take care of her spay, cherry eye and the first of her two luxating patella surgeries. She will require a minimum of 6-8 weeks between each leg surgery so this will be an extended process.


You can follow her progress on our Facebook page and updates posted at: http://www.adoptabull.org

HOW CAN YOU HELP?
The estimated cost of Lucy Lu's orthopedic reconstruction is huge and would challenge any non-profit animal welfare group. If you were able to meet her in person, you would know that every dollar invested to get this little spitfire to the finish line is a dollar well spent.

Your contribution in any amount will be greatly appreciated. Donors making a contribution of $25.00 or more will receive an adoptaBull String Strap Backpack as a token of Lucy Lu's appreciation for your support.
