Be a Hero for LingLing
Lingling began her life in Inner Mongolia, China, where she was thrown from a fifth-floor window.
With four broken legs and damaged hips, the person who was supposed to be helping Lingling heal allowed pressure sores to develop, which become infected open wounds.
Our partner in China, Candy Cane Rescue, was contacted about Lingling and took her into their care. Then they contacted Fast Friends to bring her to the US for the urgent medical care she needs that is not available where she was in China.
Lingling is now here in the US and has had a very successful amputation surgery to remove one back leg that was not able to be rehabilitated. The goal is to get her into a wheelie cart, as her remaining back leg is also very badly damaged and will not be able to support her weight.
This brave Greyhound has been in the veterinary hospital receiving treatment for almost a month. And she is almost ready to go home!
Lingling has a wonderful foster mom who is so anxious to bring her home. Her wheelie cart is ready for her and a rehabilitation center is chosen. But she has had a setback with the pressure sore on her remaining back leg reopening. Her doctors have recommended another surgery to try and close the wound and give her the best chance to heal.
After all the horror and abuse she has gone through, Lingling can still have a long, happy, pain-free life.
