This is Mama. Named for the only value someone saw in her, this breeding dog was surrendered to a local shelter with a broken leg. Don't worry, Mama! We know you are so much more than just a puppy machine!

We were initially hopeful that Mama's broken leg could be repaired, but after the radiographs were reviewed, we learned that just wasn't going to be possible. The bone is shattered with many fragments far from where they should be. After careful consideration, Mama's surgical team and BHNW feel that her best chance of a pain-free life will be to amputate the leg. She will be spayed as well. No more babies for this Mama!

We anticipate that Mama will be able to live a full and healthy life as a tripod!

We need your help! Mama's medical costs will be over $3000. Please support us as we care for Mama. If we couldn't take Mama in and give her the medical care she needs, she would likely have been euthanized. We can only continue to rescue these amazing dogs with your support!

  • Mama's a tripod!

    We are very happy to report that Mama's surgery yesterday was a success. She was able to go home to her foster mom today after her spay and leg amputation. As you can tell she's already getting around amazingly well without her leg.

    Mama came into rescue after being surrendered to a local shelter with a broken leg. She was a breeding dog who was only valued as a puppy machine. Her leg was not repairable and her best chance of living an active, pain-free life was to have it amputated, so that's what we did for her.

    We can only rescue dogs like Mama with your support. If we couldn't take her, she would have likely been euthanized. Please support us in covering Mama's medical costs so we can continue to rescue more dogs who desperately need our help! You can donate here
