♥ So happy for you, little one ♥
Original post: Karma is the dog whose owner duct-taped her mouth shut and removed part of her front leg using a saw.
Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control has been caring for sweet Karma. We were so happy to hear that Karma is doing well, we just had to share the news that she is now ready for a new home! Here is an email from Palm Beach County ACC:
We wanted to share the latest on Karma’s story.
She is doing wonderful, has gained all of her weight back and has made a full recovery from having her leg amputated. Our staff veterinarians decided a full amputation of the injured leg was the best course of action. Karma has not let that slow her down one bit; she can run and play with the best of them! She is a spayed female, mixed breed dog (American Staffordshire Terrier is listed on her paperwork), and weighs approximately 40 pounds. We think she is close to 7 or 8 years old.
We have gained official custody of all of the dogs rescued from the cruelty situation and the county attorney’s office is handling the prosecution of the man responsible. We are now in need of a loving foster home or permanent adoptive home for Karma. She is wonderful with people, loves to have her belly rubbed and she’s always smiling. She is slightly animal aggressive, so will need to be placed into a home with no other pets – this may be something that can be changed with proper training and socialization. She is not aggressive towards people in any way.
I’ve attached her most recent glamour shots along with a ‘before’ picture so you can see how far she has come. If you have any questions or would like to set up a meet-n-greet, please feel free to contact me.
