New to OCDRT on 11/12/2014, Penguin was surrendered to a vet clinic after confirming she had a broken leg. OCDRT was contacted to bring her into rescue so she could get the surgery she needs. Penguin is a female ACD around 12 weeks old. She has an appointment on 11/13 to get her leg on the mend.
Please check back as we get to know her over the next 2 – 3 weeks.

Penguin is having her leg surgery preformed tomorrow.

Penguin had surgery to repair her broken left hind leg on Friday. She is now sporting a plate and we are hoping the bone will begin to heal well. She will have a check up within a month. We will schedule her spay once her vets approve, maybe mid-December.

Penguin was taken this morning to the veterinarian who did her leg repair last Friday. She had quit bearing weight on the leg and it just "didn't look right" to us. Sadly, the screws in the bone plate had backed out, allowing the bones to shift. While it would probably heal if left alone, she would likely have a misshapen leg and we want her to be as "perfect" as is possible, so we elected to have the leg operated on again. Cross those paws and light those Bentleys again for our precious little gal that this is the last pain she will have to endure with this leg. She is a brave little puppy and we are looking forward to the leg healing and her being allowed to be a real puppy.

We have processed the submitted applications for Penguin. A cleared applicant has a meeting mid-December and placed a deposit to hold her until she is ready to go home.

Penguin’s meeting went very well. She will go to her forever home once our vet team clears her.
