All About Me

PHYSICAL
Miracle has a short black coat, tan and white markings on her face, tan legs, a white chest, and some white on two paws. She is a tripod.


PROFILE
Miracle is a sweet high-energy, playful, loving dog. And despite the recent amputation of a leg, her indomitable spirit and personality shine through. She is still gung-ho on playing with one of her foster doggie brothers, her best bud, a 70-pound pit bull! And then they settle in to chill out: check them in the pic spooning.

Miracle happily shares her foster home with the rest of the menagerie as well: 3 dogs, a cat, an African Gray Parrot, and a bearded dragon--as well as 4 high-energy kids, their granny, and their parents. She is a major cuddle bunny and a lap dog.

She is crate-trained and house-trained. She knows Sit. She is extremely food-motivated, listens well, and loves to run--easily zooming from zero to 90.


HISTORY
My husband saw this little dog in the middle of the road as he was driving. He stopped, and she rolled to the side of the road. He picked her up and took her home to me (I'm a vet tech). She was malnourished, peeing blood, had cherry eye in both her eyes; and her left leg looked like it had been wrapped in wire and cut through. Her rear hips and both rear legs had clearly both been shattered at one time and had healed poorly. After taking her to the vet we found she also had a urinary tract infection and a bladder stone the size of ping pong ball. Now you know why we called her Miracle!


HEALTH
Miracle is up-to-date on vaccinations, spayed, and heartworm negative. In addition to the spay surgery (which also included removing the bladder stone and fixing the cherry eyes), she has powered through 2 other surgeries like a trooper: on her right hind leg to get the hip back into place and then the amputation of her left hind leg.
