Little Foot was born in a rescue. His momma Imogene was surrendered to OZR Great Dane Rescue, starved, abused, and very pregnant. Imogene gave birth to 14 healthy puppies. Unfortunately, Little Foot was born with a congenital anomaly.
No vet or specialist has seen anything like it. But the closest we can compare it to is amniotic banding syndrome in human infants. Despite all the effort to properly care for Little Foot, her foot will never be normal. She is currently in foster care, away from her litter mates and momma to prevent a secondary infection.
Her paw is healing well, but she will still not have full use of that leg; Little Foot will need a prosthetic to walk. A very good prosthetic company has offered the rescue an amazing deal on a plan of prosthetics that start at two-months old, changing as Little Foot grows. With this plan, she will not have to worry about muscle atrophy or getting used to using a prosthetic as an adult. This plan will require a total of eight prosthetics costing $4,000. This price includes a discount of 50% off.
We need help giving Little Foot a normal life; please consider contributing to Little Foot's fundraiser to help her walk and ease her pain. You can also purchase a gift for her on her wishlist to keep her cozy while she undergoes this process. All items will go with her when she gets adopted.
