Special home for Frieda; 7 months old

Copied from the Biggsd Face book page

:gsdhead: Frieda is in need of a new home & someone that wants to save her life.
I'm posting on behalf of a friend in Spain who is a veterinary nurse.
Meet Frieda, she's 7 months old and the most beautiful pure breed German Shepherd.
Frida was dumped on the side of the road back in May, she was found and brought into the Vets, she couldn't walk but x-rays didn't show any fractures. The lady that brought her to the Veterinary Hospital couldn't look after her and suggested that she was put to sleep. The vet and Louise ( my friend) decided to give her a chance.
A CT scan revealed a compression of the spine which could be treated but after a referral to a specialist in Malaga, Louise was told that the problem was that Frida had Bilateral Quadriceps Contracture, so her knees were now in the wrong place and it was irreversible but something Surgery would be able to rectify.

Louise tested her for types of bacteria that might have caused this, but everything came back as negative.
Louises colleague, Anto, showed her how to do rehabilitation exercises with Frida and now she can get about on her two stiff back legs but it involves a lot of effort. We live in hope that one day we might find somebody, with more free time than Louise or I have, that wants to take on the challenge of having Frida, give her a stable home, invest in her surgery and give her a fighting chance at life.

:heart: :heart: :heart:

If this someone is you or you know someone that would want to have Frieda then please contact John on 01932 571268 or Pam on 07789 750585 ...who will put you in touch. We are even considering getting her to the UK to be seen by a specialist here for her treatment so that she can be rehomed there . :gsdhead:

Thanks for trying Pam - I read a little about her condition and it seems that the younger she is treated for it the better the result would be - so I just hope that she is being treated where ever she is. Are there any other leads to her whereabouts?
I have been thinking about her a lot.
