Bica

 

Bica arrived to the shelter after she was hit by a car and was laying on the side of the road covered in her blood and with broken leg and hip. She was taken into the car by our volunteers and she was in pain and extremely scared but even then she did not try to bite anyone. Her fracture was very serious and we were afraid she would never walk again but after the operation she started slowly slowly walk. By now she has forgot all about it. Even if her back leg will never be fully operational she does not mind, she runs, jumps and plays as you can see on the movies below.

She is now ready for adoption and we hope that this little defect will not prevent her from having a home. She is nice and playful with other dogs and she is lovely with people. She only wants to be petted and given attention to and she seems very grateful to us for having saved her life and having nursed her back to health.

Bica is recovering. She can walk now although she still uses very little one of the back legs. She sometimes puts it on the ground but not much yet. She would need physiotherapy but we don't have money for that. So we can just hope that by walking in the shelter she will get better. We are also hoping that someone will offer her a home. She is friendly, gentle, good with other dogs, affectionate with people.

Bica was found on the side of the road to Sesimbra, laying and not moving. She had been hit by a car. Two of our volunteers stopped and put her into the car, without moving. Then she was taken to the vet. Her hip was broken in two places.
A few months back, we had captured 8 puppies of her, aged 6 weeks near Sesimbra. But we were not able to catch the mother. She was very afraid of people, simply panicked. Now, with her hip broken and in pain she let us do everything, put her in the car, move her around in the vet, she did not even try to bite.

We hope Bica recovers completely and soon.
