Roois a year-old, spunky and sweet Chihuahua who was born without front legs. She and 39 other dogs were rescued by Pima Animal Care Center (PACC) on Sept. 4.
The whole group of dogs needs lots of TLC -- but none more than Roo! PACC's lead vet, Dr. Jen Wilcox, believes inbreeding caused her to be born without front legs, and x-rays show her hip likely suffered early trauma, too.
PACC has done everything they can in-house … Now Roo needs to see an orthopedic specialist who can determine what she needs to lead a happy, healthy life. She may need surgery on her hip, and she will likely need a custom mobility cart so little Roo can roll!
We are PACC's nonprofit partner, and your gifts will help PACC save Roo, her 39 friends, and the more than 20,000 pets Pima Animal Care Center takes in each year like them.
