Sammi came to BSR after years of over-breeding and suffering from the after-effects of a uterine infection and injury to her leg that threatened the need for amputation. Our first task was to treat the obvious, the infections and open wounds. Those took a long time and medical expertise, but slowly the outward wounds healed and we could turn to the question of how much mobility could we get back for Sammi, or would she require a boot or other prosthetic for her lame foot, or worse, would amputation really be the answer. Through a very long period of therapies and treatments, Sammi was able to regain adequate control over the foot and while not a normal gait, does not risk rubbing it raw with knuckling anymore. But her therapy needs are on-going to maintain the success we've had. Also, during her long journey, Sammi developed such a strong dependence on her Foster that she has separation anxiety when the Foster isn't there. Not wanting to risk her physical progress or her emotional health, we placed her in our PFC Program where she will be cared for by her experienced foster family.
