Here is Weeza's story, in the words of her rescuer:
"I picked Weeza up the same day I got Claree. They shared a kennel with Weeza's housemate, a chihuahua named Princess. Weeza's owner stated she could no longer afford to care for her, and also the landlord said she had to get rid of her pets, so brought them to the shelter. I took Weeza and found a small dog rescue to take Princess. The shelter had marked Weeza's kennel card with "needs socialization." A 10 year old that needed socialization didn't sound fun to me, but when I opened the kennel Weeza came right to me, let me leash her and scratch her ears. She didn't need socialization, she needed rescue. I took her to her new foster mom and when I lifted her from the car, she yelped. Then we knew something physical was going on. As it turns out, Weeza has the worst case of hip dysplasia my vet has ever seen. She felt that Weeza has been in pain for most of her life, but still seems like a very friendly dog, as long as she's not jostled. Some acupuncture was performed and pain medicine prescribed. I explained to her foster mom that she would not be suitable for adoption because of her extreme pain. The foster mom requested that she just be able to stay at her home until the time came when the pain medicine no longer keeps her comfortable. She said she will know when that time comes."
CorgiAid supporters have helped Weeza get up to speed on her health care, and will continue to provide the care Weeza needs to be as comfortable as possible. Thank you!
Weeza was rescued in Oklahoma.
