Update: 11/23/08: Becky, Destra's Coordinator, writes: Just got a call from Valerie, she was on the way home with Destra. She said the vet has never seen a dog recover and be so totally oblivious to the loss of a leg. I should mention the vet adopted a Mal some years ago, so she knows how resilient they are!

(snicker) Valerie said the vet told her that she KNEW how impossible it would be to keep Destra quiet and such, so told her to hold down the running to no more than 10 or so minutes per day/RX times twice a day. Valerie says the vet did a great job, and if not for the stitches you would never know she was not born with three legs!

Valerie promised photos soon!

Update: 11/22/85: Becky, Destra's Coordinator, writes at midnight 11/21/08: I talked to Valerie tonight. Miss Destra was up and walking at the vets....Valerie said she did not seem to miss her leg, and had no balance problems. So, looks like we may soon have a picture of the Flying Tripod!

Last spring a very young Malinois was playing exuberantly with her owner when she broke a leg. The owner was unable to afford to fix the leg and turned her over to another rescue program. PUP (People United for Pets) in Washington State had her leg fixed, which required the insertion of a pin but after a few weeks she started clubbing her foot and lost all physical condition during the five weeks of confinement. They recognized they simply did not have the appropriate setup needed to prevent her from doing further damage to her foot. In other words Destra was being a Malinois, constantly in motion. They asked us if we could take her into foster care and we agreed!

Destra stopped clubbing the foot within a week, but about a week or 10 days later the foster home noticed bloody footprints on the floor and realized she had run her foot raw. It was immediately treated with antibiotic ointment and she was once again on reduced activity. But even with care she managed to take the damage all the way to the bone because as the vet discovered she had nerve damage, either from the original break or the surgery to repair the leg, and there was no feeling in the foot. He also diagnosed a bone infection and Destra was again on strictly monitored activity to try to get the infection cleared up. The pad did heal but the infection DID NOT and Destra had two toes amputated in early Sept.

The foster home has done a tremendous job for almost 6 mos providing nearly constant one on one attention but this girl DOES NOT have an OFF SWITCH! To complicate matters the first of November the vet discovered that amputating the toes on that back leg did not stop the bone infection. The infection has spread, and the entire leg now needs to be amputated. The Foster home was sick at heart as they were sure we would say euthanize; however; we asked if they were prepared to deal with the recovery from this type of surgery and they sent back a resounding YES!

So we have to find a way! to pay! for Destra's amputation! She is less than a year old and over the years we've had several amputees listed on the website. While it has taken a bit longer to place them they have all found good loving homes and Destra will too!

This young girl needs your help to make this happen. Destra can have a full, active life but it will take the combined efforts of everyone to ensure she has that chance.

Can you help with the estimated $1100-1400 that are needed? If you can please visit GuideStar's secure server. And PLEASE indicate your donation is specifically for Destra's surgery. Only by telling us what your donation is for can we keep our promise that it will be used for the purpose you intend.
