This is Ali!

Hi!
I'm posting for 2 reasons. One to introduce Ali. The dog we rescued with a badly injured leg.
She is an absolute sweetheart. I'm totally in love with her. Very friendly and loving. She's about the size of a cocker spaniel.
We found her in a park in front of a theater with an exposed bone fracture.
She was docile even in those moments of great pain for her. She had been wondering around for about a week with the bone showing up through her muscle and fur.
The emergency vet had to amputate since the bone was already infected. Her new vet doesn't agree much how he did the "cut" because she thinks he should have removed higher so she doesn't have to carry extra weight on her hips but over all she says she'll be all right. We just need to keep checking on stump sores.
Friendly, happy, smoother than silk, curious and a total pinwheel this is ALI!

That's Ali with a little patient at the vet

Right now she's staying at her new vet. She's allowed outside the kennel and very happy and looking for a home.
Now the second reason why I'm posting is: Where can I find good articles about the care of disabled dogs (in this case an amputee of a hind leg) .
How to exercise them and overall how to make them comfortable and happy in the day to day living.
If you know where can I find info on this that would be awesome

She is such a doll, Koteburo! I love how happy she looks!

She's lucky to have such good guardian angels! Your family makes quite the team!

She's a silver bell of happiness haha.
Still last night I saw a straw colored stray and I've seen quite a few lately so frustrating but at least I can save some, better than none.
Ali's a doll! hehe

I went to take Ragnar for his rabies shot and also to see Ali. She got her first vaccination yesterday that covers 6 different things. Tomorrow bath and deworming. The vet says she's very healthy and strong.
She was almost exploding with excitement from getting all the attention. Everyone seems to like her. She has that kind of endearing charm from dogs in the movies
She let me hug her (I know many dogs don't like hugs but she seems to enjoy it even), giving doggie kisses, moving around, tail wagging. I could caress her freely without my hand being gnawed heh and it felt good
She's around 1 year old they calculate. A SWEETHEART!!!

I couldn't be happier too. If it wasn't for that encounter with my dad (then he called us, even my brother showed up to carry her. It was quite an adventure) that light in this world would be gone.
I'm so glad she's better and happier
