Jezzy is Half-Way There!

Posted in Pets In Need by handipets on December 18, 2008


Jezzy is a 25-lb. Australian Shepherd who loves to dance on her
back legs! She is around 2 years old, and was found earlier this year
as a stray at Ft. Hood, TX. She was due to be euthanized but one of the
vet techs couldn’t let that happen, and took her home. She was not able
to keep her, however, so Jezzy made her way to Austin Aussie Rescue. From September though October, she participated in a training program at Triple Crown Academy in Hutto, TX.

On November 14, Jezzy went to daycare at Taurus Training and Doggy Play Day with her foster brother, Indy.
Somehow their leashes entangled getting out of the car, and in a freak
accident, Jezzy ended up with a serious spiral fracture to both the
tibia and fibia (upper and lower leg bones).

She had surgery on Monday, November 17, at the Central Texas Veterinary Specialty Hospital and we are now paying off our bills of over $2,000.
The good news is the surgery went well and the vet believes she has a
good chance for a full recovery. Her two-week checkup looked good and
her doctor was pleased with her progress. Jezzy still has five more
weeks of crate rest. Her foster family is dedicated to keeping her
quiet so her bones can heal properly. We did collect $850 from a previous Fundable and over $200 in checks.

We are asking for your help to contribute toward Jezzy’s vet
bills so we can see her dancing again — in a few more weeks! And, once
she gets the OK from the vet, Jezzy needs a permanent, loving home. See
Jezzy’s Petfinder page here (includes a video). See more pictures here!
