Miel is approximately 7 years old and was surrendered to a local veterinary practice after an accident at home that left her with permanent nerve damage in her rear legs. At that time she needed to wear specially adapted boots or braces to help her walk properly. Miel also has some behavioral insecurities that we’ve found and probably were the reason for the accident. She doesn’t like people coming and going through doors, and being in a busy environment stresses her—this has been identified as PTSD from trauma in her past homes. Miel has a long journey ahead of her with us as she continues to heal both medically and behaviorally.

Current Status:

Miel is still struggling with meeting new people. We have a few new staff members that she needs to meet—they are integral to her daily care. She has been receptive to the staff members dropping treats or even feeding her breakfast in her crate, but outside while on walks or when going out to potty she would rather have people in her inner circle do those tasks. It’s a slow road, but we are hoping that she’ll make a new friend soon.
