Haile's Angels Pet Rescue heard about Winnie and decided to take her in, even though her prognosis didn't look good. She was severely malnourished, couldn't move on her own at all and seemed to have given up. The rescue hoped a little love would lift her spirits, though, and after spending a week being treated at the vet, she was moved into a foster home.
Winnie's new foster parents realized that she seemed to have feeling in all of her legs, even though she couldn't walk or stand. She was even able to kick them a little while lying down or taking a bath, and this gave her foster parents hope.
