The Humane Society of Faulkner County in Arkansas rescued the pooch, who was found in a ditch on the side of the road late last summer. The group gave her the therapy she needed to work toward walking on all fours. But even after treatment, Girlie Girl struggled with her back leg, dragging her paw on the ground. This led to "a vicious cycle" of healing, swelling and then "complete deterioration," Humane Society volunteer Judi Standridge told The Dodo. Vets considered amputation.
