A kind cyclist spotted Sweetheart hobbling around on a mountain road in northern Taiwan and asked ACT to please help her. It took us a few tries before we found her, but, when we did, we were happy to discover that she is a very friendly lady and therefore easy to ‘rescue’. Sweetheart was in pretty good health when she came in and the injuries to her two legs were old and needed no further surgery. She gets around just fine but doesn’t have the energy of dogs with all four legs to carry them. We treated her for babesiosis and are now looking into getting her prosthetics for both legs that are missing paws. Don’t feel sorry for her; she’s a happy little lady who loves food, cuddles, sunbathing, and short walks. After a few days, you’ll forget she’s not your typical four-legged friend!
