Nana tries to get comfortable in C Ward at Miami-Dade Animal Control; her back leg is in a cast, but when a volunteer opened her kennel door, Nana (A1585169) carefully accepted a treat, wagged her tail and tenderly licked the volunteer's hand.
If her condition worsens, Nana will be euthanized. A volunteer said this about this neglected soul:
"Nana has a cast on her back right leg. When you touch the bottom of the cast near her paw she flinches. She is still in pain.. . According to her medical notes: Nana has road burn over the left side her body-
I could not see it as she was laying down in her cage and did not want to put weight on her paw, she is underweight and is fed multiple times a day, dental disease, mammary glands do not have milk, seems to have been bred, multiple bruising on head and body."
Nana has been at the shelter since January 6, and her time might very well be over soon. She is confined to the medical area where she is not available to be seen by the public at this time because of her injuries.
Most likely the 45 pound dog who has been categorized as a terrier (and not a pit bull) was hit by a car. She is heart worm negative, and is barely four-years-old; oh what a life she can still have if she finds a loving home.
Nana's story has not been shared much because she has not been on the pages available for adoption. Classify Nana as injured and black, and this loving pooch gets passed by too often.
Please spread her story to your friends, coworkers, and family. Donations are now being pledged to help a rescue provide this dog with the needed medical care.
