So let me tell you a little story about Lemur and then I will talk about her adoptive family. Lemur was sold at a puppy mill auction, we never know anything about their health and what their past was, how many litters, any medical problems they might have had with that.
Dr. Reno opened Lemur up to spay her and called me while she was still on the table, she said she had never seen such a mess as what she was looking at. Her bladder was adhered to her abdominal wall, her intestines were rolled up in a ball of adhesions and scar tissue. She couldn’t even see if she even has a uterus, and maybe she doesn’t. We just don’t know but the task in front of Dr. Reno was out of her league. She said this sweet girl absolutely needs a surgeon to try and tackle this. It is obvious that she’s had lots and lots of C-sections and was not put back together well, did they spay her at one of them? we just don’t know. She was sold as a dog to breed but that doesn’t matter, honesty isn’t necessary.
Dr. Reno said she will need to recover from the surgery she did where she tried to untangle the mess in there before she said she can’t do this. In a couple of months we will send her to the surgeon and see if they want to do an ultrasound to see if they can identify a uterus, if not we will leave her be. If they do see one then she will need to be opened up and the surgeons will go to work to try and find it and untangle everything.
We knew that Lemur had an excellent family waiting for her so Laura called them to explain the situation, and not only did it not deter them but they preferred to just take her home now on a spay contract and in a couple of months they will take her to see the surgeons and try and solve this problem. Of course Dog Ranch Rescue will pay all of the expenses associated with her care but in the meantime she will live in her own home with her own family.
Her mom and dad are Karla & Mark Strachan from Kaufman, TX Karla has her own business and works from home. They have a 12 year old female Yorkie who Lemur can play with and they lost her brother to heart failure just 4 weeks ago. Karla has asked that the village send thoughts and prayers for Lemur for whatever she may be facing. They are undecided about her name but said they will let us know on the Happy Tails page. We will update you on her condition as we work though it in the next couple of months but in the meantime we can be very happy that this little girl is safe and loved.
Happy life everyone ❤️
This is a sweet little female Yorkie who was so happy to be chosen. At four years old she’s enjoying being free of the caged, horrible life of the mills churning out puppies. You’re puppy-making days are over, tiny girl!
Born in March of 2015.
Now known as Lemur.
