  DESCRIPTION:  Adira and her siblings - Isa, Knox, and Beckett - were dumped on a country road. Emaciated and clearly lacking care, these babies needed help and fast. When a kind member of the community discovered what had happened to the puppies, they moved quickly to help these babies find safety. Recognizing that these little orphans would have their best chance at finding safe and loving forever homes with a rescue, a plea for help went out. Adira is an absolute doll. She has been fortunate to have been living with one of our amazing vetting partners who has worked hard to make sure she is happy, healthy, and well socialized.  Continued socialization is critical to Adira's success as she grows. Unfortunately, it was apparent when Adira arrived that she had suffered some trauma to her back leg. It seems very likely that she was hit by a car when dumped with her siblings. MAGSR quickly had Adira seen by one of our vets who recommended that she be seen by a specialist as she would need an FHO (Femoral Head Ostectomy). This past week, Adira had her FHO surgery and is resting comfortably with the help of a few anti-inflammatory meds. She will need to take it slow over the next month or two as she heals; however, Adira is expected to make a full recovery.
