Liesel-Beautiful Shepherd Pup Abandoned With No Use Of Front Legs

On the evening of April 24th, the AHS Newark facility was called out on an emergency to rescue this gorgeous 5-6 month old German Shepherd. The pup had been found as a stray with no use of her front legs. The ACO immediately brought her to the Animal Emergency and Referral Associates (AERA) in Fairfield for urgent care.

After consultation with the AERA veterinarian, they advised that there were no broken bones. We then asked if they could keep the dog a little longer to possibly diagnose the condition. An old fracture to the front left leg was discovered & the veterinary staff theorized that the dog was kept in a very small cage/container to heal the leg for a prolonged period causing the dog to lose muscle strength.

They suggested that giving fluid therapy and extensive physical therapy will greatly improve her quality of life. We call her "Liesel" and she has been moved to the Popcorn Park facility for our medical staff to oversee the next step in the process of improving her condition.

The AHS Res-Q Fund is used for such needy circumstances as Liesel who require extensive time and care until a forever home is found. For more information on Liesel, call AHS at 609-693-1900 or e-mail us.

The AHS lots of beautiful mixed breeds available for adoption. If you are searching for a particular breed, we have Rottweilers, Chihuahuas, Poodles, Cairn Terrier, Shi Tzus, Lhasa Apsos, Puggles, Pit Bull Terriers, Giant Schnauzer and more!
