Faye is now rehomed.
When Faye arrived at Assisi she had a serious problem with her front leg and some of you may remember us appealing for support to cover the cost of operating on her leg. She had a condition called Carpal Hyperextension which is damage to ligament support of the carpus (equivalent of our wrist) resulting in the leg dropping and and painful arthritis develops in the various carpal joints due to the abnormal stresses in the joint. The condition gradually gets worse until the dog won’t be able to walk normally and they will be in constant pain.
