Annie (Eliza’s New Mom):

Eliza was broken on the inside and out. She couldn’t walk. She had been hit by a car and left for dead.

“Oh… Honey!”

Annie:

She was brought into the local kill shelter by a good Samaritan, and she originally broke her right hip. It was fractured in several places.

“What are you doing?”

Her left hip broke as well. She also had a bruised right lung. She had all kinds of worms and parasites. She had Maine. She was malnourished. They had her on some medicines in the hospital, but she wasn’t getting any better.

Rocky Kanaka (Animal Advocate):

Eliza’s recovery was expensive. Luckily there were teams of dog lovers who were able to provide support.

Annie:

People were just crazy about this dog. In about 72 hours, I raised about $5,000. I was able to get Eliza seen by an orthopedic vet specialist who immediately scheduled her for a femoral head ostectomy, which is major orthopedic hip surgery. On Christmas day, she took her first steps! <laugh>

Annie:

That’s the day I decided to adopt her officially, and it took her about a month to be able to walk without a limp, and it took her about six months to be able to run.

Rocky:

Even though Eliza’s body is healing, she still has some emotional and mental trauma to work through.

Annie:

From the moment I got her, I could tell that she had a lot of trauma with things around her neck. I could not get a collar on her. She was most likely dragged around her neck. She was chained up. She was pulled. She was abused in some way with things around her neck. That’s what my ved said. I had to let her chew up a couple of collars just so she could kind of get that anxiety out onto the collar.

“Okay, It’s Okay. It’s okay.”

I think Macy, her doggy sister, definitely helped her with the leash training. Macy really kind of taught Eliza how to be a dog. Macy was a rescue as well. She kind of got why Eliza was so scared. And one day I was taking Macy on a walk and I went to put a leash on Eliza, and I was expecting her to do what she always did. And then she’s kind of looked up at me and she looked the top of my hand and she was like, All right, let’s go. Let’s do this.

I was able to walk her on a leash, and I don’t know what it was that just clicked, but she suddenly decided that she trusted me enough and that I wasn’t gonna hurt her with the leash. And now she’s a leash dog.

“Good girl. Look at you.”
