Story, Personality, Others:
Ginja was found on the street in 2013, she was not even 1 year old and she had broken leg. The head of the femur of the left back leg was broken. Ginja was immediately operated but the head of the femur had to be removed. At the beginning she was fine but with years passed and the older she was getting the more difficulty she had moving around. Her back legs were just not strong enough.
She was actually adopted in 2013, just after the operation and we thought she was safe for life but recently, in July 2021, she was brought back to us. Admitedly, her ex-owners suffered both a number of health disasters which are irreversible and do not allow them to take properly care even of themselves.
When Ginja was brought to us she could hardly walk. Her back legs could not carry her at all. She was all curved. We did Xrays and she was diagnosed with discoespondilosis which is generative disease which affects spine and creates neo-formations between the vertebrae. Unfortunately there is no cure, Ginja will always be like this.
What helps a lot is Librela. A medication that we give to her once a month in a form of injection and it has a miraculous effect. She walks, runs and jumps. It is not cheap but it increases Ginja´s quality of life so it is worth it.
Noone will ever adopt her. Such a shame as she is such a nice, gentle and friendly dog. But people want perfect dogs. A dog with health problem, however gentle and nice, has no chance of finding a home.
