Kessia used to have a job as guard dog for a shop in Trujillo. One night, some burglars attempted to rob the shop and Kessia was struck with a metal pipe, breaking her right leg. Her leg was fixed at a local shelter but broke again a few weeks later because it was not fixed properly the first time. Due to a serious lack of funding, the shelter was left with no other option but to let it heal on its own.
Kessia caught the attention of a volunteer, and after months of hard work and sorting through what seemed like an endless amount of red tape, Kessia landed in the United States to begin her new life, starting with the removal of her leg.
Kessia’s foster mom says she is doing great and is a very happy girl who gets along just fine, thank you very much.
Every Monday, i Love Dogs spotlights a homeless dog as part of our i Love Dogs Rescue Network effort to find furever homes for these pooches.
I chose Kessia because she is a special-needs girl, and it is very hard for dogs with special needs to find furever homes; and because Kessia comes from the Illinois Doberman Rescue Plus organization, the same rescue that was helping Kane, a Doberman we had featured in our Rescue Network, who sadly passed to the Rainbow Bridge earlier this year.
Please help the i Love Dogs Rescue Network and the Illinois Doberman Rescue Plus spread the word that Kessia needs a loving furever home.
