Description: This is precious little Darla. She weighs about 6 pounds. We believe she is a Yorkie/Dachshund mix. She came to us from the Rio Grande Valley with a crushed vertebra, badly injured eye and a mangled back leg. She gets around using her leg that is not mangled like a crutch. She very young and just happy to be alive. It breaks our hearts to even think what may have happened to her.
ATDR took Darla to our friends at Safari for stem cells, it was determined that she wasn't a candidate, but did have an amputation so that she can better scoot around without the crushed limb getting in the way! Please help ATDR give Darla a chance at the normal active life she so desperately needs and deserves!
