Dog Story: Chloe came to ABR 6 yrs ago when she and her siblings were waiting to be born Yes, Chloe’s mom was a pure bred Brittany and was rescued with only a week or two from delivering. We had no idea at the time who the father was. When Chloe was born, she looked like a Brittany and Chloe, along with her siblings all found homes when the time came. Now 6 years later, Chloe is back with us in rescue and as you can see, she is not a pure-bred Brittany, but possibly a Brittany/GSP. Chloe’s original home loved her to pieces, but for whatever reason, she started to escape whenever the chance came. One day, she came home limping which continued on and off for months. Her owners realized they couldn’t afford to repair her leg and they were not having any luck keeping her from escaping. They contacted us and asked if we would take her back which we would and surrendered her back. A visit to the vet confirmed that she had a torn knee ligament. Chloe had a ‘Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy’ (TPLO) surgery. She was a trooper through it all. Chloe has an excellent personality as nothing phased her. Unfortunately, Chloe developed an infection in the surgical area. After several rounds of antibiotics, the Dr. decided the plate needed to be removed, so Chloe had surgery #2. She healed great and was ready for adoption. But, before that took place, Chloe came in the house limping on her other leg! She tore her other knee ligament. So, surgery #3 for Chloe. This knee healed perfectly, no infections, no therapy needed, nothing. And she is good to go with NO other knees to injure! As of now, her medical expenses are in excess of $8,000.00, but she is worth every penny. Chloe is in our Buddy program, so if you would like to make a donation to help offset her expenses, we would greatly appreciate it. Chloe’s personality? She is very sweet and loving. This foster family is totally smitten by her charm. Chloe always wants to be our side, being petted of course! She loves the wildlife in our backyard and hanging with our two Brittanys. Chloe has been around a toddler and was very gentle with her. Chloe waits for her dinner and is gentle taking treats. Chloe has gotten out a few times, but each time we were able to get her to come back in with a little persuasion. We just watch closely when people come in and out of the house to make sure she doesn’t take off, but lately that hasn’t even been an issue. Chloe is a fantastic dog and would love some kids to play ball with her!
