Miel is approximately 6 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 has been happier and more relaxed while out on her walks lately. She still likes to wander when she goes on field trips, and even on some of her walks at the sanctuary, but there is often a loose sway to her tail and hips that she didn’t have prior to now.
