A 6 month-old puppy should be full of wonder and energy, and happy to meet new people. But Zang was nervous and unwillingness to walk…something was very wrong.
Her right hind leg is shorter than her left. X-rays revealed that her leg and hip were once fractured and healed poorly.
Fortunately, FHO surgery can help. Like many rescued dogs, Zang is afraid of people—a condition that occurs when puppies do not receive human love during the most impressionable first 3 months of their lives. Zang might even have been badly treated, which could explain her broken leg and fear.
Thankfully, two wonderful foster parents have volunteered to socialize and encourage Zang prior to surgery.

Zang was back to the Shelter. She looks great! She will be here at the Shelter for a week, and then her foster family will take her back home. Right now she requires physical therapy each day. After her staples are out and she heals, she will go to aquatic therapy. Pretty soon she will be a big happy puppy.

Zang is responding well to the physical therapy. Her leg is still quite stiff from the surgery. Zang is loving the extra attention. Outside, she is still holding up her sore leg.

Zang has been adopted! And yes, it is Zang’s foster family who claimed this gem. After all the TLC Zang received during her recuperation, she fell in love with her foster family, and they fell in love with her. Zang gives them kisses every day to show her gratitude, and everyone gives thanks to all the donors for making this all possible.
