Lydia’s mom started calling all the different shelters in Utah, trying to find a dog that could help Lydia through the tough time she was going through. The problem was, she wasn’t just looking for any dog — she was looking for a dog who was missing a leg, just like Lydia. After months of searching, Lydia’s mom got a call from Best Friends Animal Sanctuary. They’d just taken in the perfect dog for her.
Clover was found wandering the streets all alone, likely after being hit by a car. One of her front legs was badly injured, and all she could do was drag it along with her, completely unable to use it. After examining her further, vets determined that there was no way to save Clover’s leg, and she had it amputated. Luckily, Clover adjusted well to life with only three legs, and Lydia’s family knew that Clover would be the absolute perfect role model for her.
