URGENT HELP NEEDED FOR THIS BEAUTIFUL DOG, ALASKA......
Last week we were contacted by a family who had been feeding Alaska who was found living on a roundabout just outside the village of Purias, she had been there approximately a week to ten days along with one puppy who had been deliberately placed in a concrete water pipe, Alaska was in danger of being hit by a car as she was so concerned in protecting her puppy.
At first sight we thought Alaska had a broken back leg; after some coaxing into our car we immediately took her and her pup to our vets in Lorca and fortunately that was not the case; it seems that she has a very old wound around her claw area which has made her stop using the back leg when walking, she has only used three legs for a very long time, after having x-rays these show she has a great deal of muscle wastage on her hip, at present she is on medication to see if this helps; if not, an operation will be required to remove the claw and surrounding area.
Other than the above Alaska is healthy and weighs 40 kilos, she is between 18 months to 2 years old giving her birth sometime in 2013! Her nature is quite and gentle and after only four days of medication she is already feeling better and putting all four feet on the ground.
We desperately would like someone to foster Alaska while her treatment continues as she is only in temporary accommodation for this week; this treatment would of course be funded by San Animal.
Regarding her puppy, we were advised by the vet not to continue letting Alaska feed her, therefore the family who were feeding them both on the roundabout have taken her into foster care with their own dogs.
PLEASE CONTACT US URGENTLY IF YOU CAN HELP FOSTER ALASKA, EVEN IF ITS JUST FOR A SHORT TIME - she really deserves a happy life ❤️
