IDR’s smallest addition. She does have a home but IDR+ is still paying for her vet visits every few days and the surgeries she will need in the future. Nezumi, which means mouse in Japanese came to us at 4 weeks old when a family could not care for her. They unfortunately bred their own Chihuahuas and one of the pups was born with malformed back legs. They did not have the money to try to fix her so dropped her at their vet to be put to sleep. We are not sure what her future holds since her back legs do have severe issues and due to her age are not fixable at the moment. Right now her legs are getting taped into the correct position so her knees do not lock. She also has ulcers on her eyes but with medication they are doing fine. We are just taking it day by day.
Watch this video of her in her playpen.
Nezumi is officially adopted but IDR will still be paying for her leg surgeries when she is old enough.
