I found this listing on petfinder.com while searching for Sassi (missing from St. charles, MO):
Henrietta is a beautiful little lady that was turned into an outlying animal control facility as a stray. She was brought in with her rear leg broken. Her coat was overgrown, but not the least bit matted. The animal control officers believe that the individual that turned her in was likely Henriettas owner and that they simply could not afford veterinary care for Henrietta.
Henrietta has been so amazing and loving. She has the most perfect manners.
Even though she is on strict cage rest, she has not let that dampen her spirits. When she is taken out to go for a potty break, she makes sure to show her appreciation by showering her person with tons of kisses!
She loves treats and anything that involves all the attention on her.
She has a very calm demeanor and stays very mellow when all the other dogs get excited.
Thankfully, we were able to take her in and provide her with veterinary care. She had surgery on the 28th of November at Paces Ferry Veterinary Clinic to repair her broken femur.

Update 12/06/11: Henrietta returned to Dr. Marguriet today for her one-week check up and re-bandaging (shes wrapped from her hip to her toe). We are thrilled to report that Henriettas incision looked very good, and that she appears to be healing nicely. Shes back in her cage as we write this, still on strict cage rest with a return to the vet in a week to remove the staples from her incision and to again re-wrap her leg.
Update 12/19/11: Henrietta returned to Paces Ferry Veterinary Clinic to have her bandage changed today, which is a normal part of the post-surgery process. Dr. Marguriet says that Henrietta is healing very well. She has been so patient during her cage-rest process, but looks forward to the next 3.5 weeks passing quickly so she can run and play again!
Update 1/24/12: Henrietta goes in tomorrow for her spay surgery and removal of the pin in her leg. She should recover nicely and soon be available for adoption.
