Last month we introduced you to Poppy, a young yellow lab mix who was surrendered to Spirit’s Mission after she was hit by a car and her injuries left untreated. Among her many injuries was a severely damaged leg, which made walking quite difficult.
We’re happy to report that not only is Poppy recovering well in her foster home, but she has improved enough to enjoy the snow and go for winter walks with her foster family. Here are some photos that her foster mom has shared with us.
Look at those ears! Poppy is a sweet dog and it warms our hearts to see her enjoying life the way a dog should.
Poppy still has a ways to go in her recovery – unsurprisingly given the extent of her original injuries, her knee does still give her some pain and she’ll be visiting the vet this week to find out what more can be done for her. We’re looking into getting her some massage treatments as well. We owe a big, big thank you to Willow at Crooked Leg Ranch for providing Poppy with an incredible foster home!
Thank you to everyone who has donated to help out with Poppy’s medical bills. She still has a ways to go before she’ll be ready for adoption, and your continued support is welcomed appreciated. We’ll keep you posted on Poppy’s ongoing recovery – follow us on Facebook or sign up for our monthly e-newsletter to stay up-to-date on stories like hers and other news from Spirit’s Mission.
