Rescuer takes her foster dog swimming every day to help her walk again
Joy has made a full recovery and is ready for her forever home! Here she is 4 months later: http://theorphanpet.com/dog-recovered-severe-injuries-can-now-finally-run/
On October 4, 2016, in a suburb of Athens, Greece, Joy was hit by a car and left there, on the side of the road, to suffer in agony and pain, until the rescuers got to her. It's hard to tell if she was recently abandoned or just lost, but nobody has come forward to claim her so far, and I don't think anyone ever will.
Joy was taken to the vet immediately. The pain she was is must have been unbearable, but Joy dealt with it wagging her tail. She had two smashed legs, and pneumothorax caused by the force of the impact.
The tag outside her cage in the clinic said: "caution, in severe pain". She was operated on a few days later, pins, plates and a bone graft were used to put her legs back together, and she remained confined for a few weeks.
Joy's bones have healed, but she still has a long way to go. She is still in pain, and she barely uses her two broken legs. The vet has recommended that swims, and last week her foster mum, Elizabeth started taking her to the beach every day (on of the advantages of living in Athens- you can go swimming in November). She will probably need professional physiotherapy too. Joy's back hind leg has improved a lot in the last week, but, but our vet is not optimistic about her front one. The crash seems to have damaged the nerve, and saving it will not be easy. You can help the charity by donating via Paypal: info@email@example.com
