If you ever meet German Shepherd Clover you will notice her happy and loving nature. Clover was hit by a car and left on the side of the road.
She was so sweet that despite having a broken femur and being in pretty bad shape, the shelter reached out to find her a rescue. Our vet told us that her injuries were more severe than we originally expected.
In addition to the broken leg, German Shepherd also suffered a spinal injury with significant cord swelling. Her condition might have been better had this been treated at the onset, but it has caused her to lose the mobility in her hind end.
We decided to give her time to heal rather than just euthanize her because dogs can heal pretty good. Her femur fracture was repaired and has healed.
Clover is making great progress. She already has some movement in her legs and recently started moving her tail, and can even stand for short periods of time.
Unfortunately, recovery from such serious injury does not occur overnight. We know she would benefit from intense physical therapy to teach her muscles how to work again. So we decided to give her a chance.
We have found a rehab facility in Los Angeles that can give Clover this level of rehab and Care.
Over the past few months of therapy, Clover has made great progress, even though it takes a lot of time and effort. This beautiful German Shepherd enjoys all her physical therapy and treatments and works very hard.
Even in her condition, she is still very enthusiastic and makes the most of her life. She loves attention and will be as active as she is allowed to be.
She enjoys her toys, chewing on antlers or kongs and loves to tool around in her wheels.
Even if she doesn’t regain full use of her hind legs; she still has a good quality of life and is not hard to manage.
Don’t forget to share her amazing recovery story with your friends and family!
