On July 13, 2012, Joy, a 12 week old Australian Cattle Dog Mix, was found after Bastrop Animal Control was told two puppies had been hit by a car were on the side of the road. When the officer arrived, he found Joy laying on top of her dead sister. When she arrived at the shelter, Urgent Animals at BCAS rushed her into the vet, and they said that she had a spiral compound fracture of the mid-right femur. The treatment was to be an IM pin with cerclage wire to repair the fracture. She was able to have surgery on Monday July 16th, 2012 at the Bastrop Veterinary Hospital due to many kind people that donated to save her. Now three weeks later here is an update of Joy at the Hardy Hayes Refuge where she is in foster care. We do bicycle exercises with her twice daily and lance her wound. She is socializing with dogs of all ages and sizes. She is highly social and loves water. Next week, she will get spayed at Emancipet and get x-rays at the vet to check her progress.If all is well, in three weeks she will have her pin removed. In a month, she will be ready to meet potential adopters. Thank you to everyone that made this possible. She is truly an amazing spirit! Check out our FB page: http://www.facebook.com/urgentbcas
