Clementine is a sweet and adorable white pup born with a congenital anomaly. One of her front paws is curved, making it difficult for her to move around. She couldn’t put much weight on the deformed limb. Because of this, her owners decided to surrender her to a shelter in San Bernardino, California.
Dogs like Clementine are usually placed on a kill list after a while. This is because injured, sick, or senior dogs are considered special needs, and people typically don’t adopt them. There was a strong chance that the white pup would not last long. Thankfully, a nonprofit rescue organization named Love Leo Rescue from Los Angeles came in and gave the young pooch a chance to have a long and happy life.
According to the rescue group’s founder, Clementine was a bit shy at first as she was scared of the strange people around her. But with some love attention, she soon warmed up to her rescuer.
Clementine was brought to a specialist who said that the leg didn’t need to be amputated. But they will have to do a series of operations to place pins on her bones and straighten out the leg. The rescue group quickly started to raise the funds needed for the costly treatment.
The rescue dog got her surgeries and had the pins removed after eight weeks. The treatment went very well, and she recovered quickly.
From California to Texas
While the young pup was recovering, the rescue group was actively looking for good people that would want to adopt Clementine. They had several inquiries, but the serious interest came from a couple from Texas.
The eager new dog owners drove all the way so that they could get Clementine. Their dedication to welcome the pup in their life is a good indication that their pet would be well cared for.
