Masha & Sasha
Sasha and Masha are the sweetest, small to medium sized doggies, both sterilized, vaccinated, and very bonded. They are 6 months old, both healthy and robust. Their bowed legs do not slow them down any, are not causing any discomfort, and are already improving. We would love to find a loving family who would consider adopting both puppies, since they love each other and have been through so much together, relying on one another. They truly are a joy: they love everyone they meet, get along with all people and dogs, gentle, playful, and sweet. Would you like to give a gift of Life to the two little special souls? It would certainly change the world for them.
A couple of months ago, we received an urgent plea from one of our volunteers. While driving through a remote area, right on the edge of a four lane highway, she spotted two tiny puppies. Emaciated, malnourished, barely able to walk - both with deformed little legs... she looked closer - a little boy and a little girl.... The babies hobbled over to her, wagging their tails: they did not seem to know they were left there to die and how close they had being crushed by speeding trucks... The puppies were weak, dehydrated, starving and absolutely thrilled to see a kind human. The babies were both extremely sweet and clearly bonded. She grabbed them and brought them to a nearby shelter. But the shelter refused to take the puppies, saying they were “damaged” and “no good,” and suggested euthanasia. The volunteer could not euthanise - so she called us in tears. This is how Masha and Sasha ended up with us. The babies were dewormed, vaccinated, and put on a special diet. Both were examined by the vet, who took xrays, ran a few tests, and diagnosed them with tendon laxity. The boy, Sasha, has a more pronounced case in his front legs, and the girl, Masha, has a milder case in her hind legs. The veterinarian said that they did not need surgery, and that with the right nutrition, their condition will most likely improve over time. Our rescue consulting veterinarian concurred.
