Gracie was only two years old when her owner in Georgia tried to turn her into rescue. She had knee problems and they did not want to spend the funds to fix her. Rescue in Georgia turned them down because of the expense of fixing her knees. The owner knew of someone in St. Louis and they contacted Dirk.
We had the critter flown to St Louis and performed the surgery required on both her knees. After surgery, she was even climbing steps. She located a marvelous home with a mom & dad, three children, and even some pets to play with. Life was good!
She had the kind of face that said “hug me” and everyone did. She was settling in to her great home when she developed cluster seizures. No amount of medication would stop the pain. She died as she would have requested – in her momma’s arms.
