This beautiful girl is Addison Allegro. Addison was picked up as a stray, by Animal Control and ended up in a cage at Harris County Shelter. It was obvious she had a severe injury to her right front leg, so when no one turned up to claim her, she was made available for medical rescue. Once we heard that, one of our dedicated DREAM Team Volunteers made a bee line to pick Addison up and get her to a veterinary specialist to diagnose her injury and determine a plan to repair it. Her little leg was completely swollen and just hanging down. We were fearful that Addie could have nerve damage, which might result in the need for amputation.

After seeing the specialist, we received word that it's actually a double fracture of both long bones (the ulna and radius are shattered) and are broken from her elbow down; indicating she was likely hit by a car. Thank goodness the Vet doesn't think there is nerve damage, as her leg is quite painful. The injury likely occurred a couple days ago. We can only imagine the pain and fear this poor sweet 13.5 lb. girl must have felt. Addison is scheduled for surgery, and the orthopedic surgeon is hoping to use plates; but if it's worse then expected, she'll need exterior pins.

Addison has a long road to recovery following surgery. Your prayers are greatly appreciated!
