After astounding medical treatment, Lizzy the Schnauzer is ready for her forever home!
A brave, stray Schnauzer mix named Lizzy had her jaw shattered after being brutally kicked as she was defending a puppy on the streets of Tijuana, Mexico. Unable to eat or drink for weeks, word of Lizzy’s desperate situation reached the rescue community in Los Angeles. Lizzy was rescued, and rushed across the border by The Forgotten Dog Foundation, along with the puppy she was defending. With time of the essence, Lizzy was taken immediately to a veterinary hospital in Los Angeles, where, after a week of being on a feeding tube, her jaw was put back together, saving her life. Thanks to skilled orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Robert Olds, who performed a five-hour surgery on her broken jaw, Lizzy was able to eat and drink again within 48 hours post surgery.
And then her journey of healing began…
“Lizzy reminds us all in rescue that everything is possible when a pack of people work together to save just one dog. Miracles can happen. Lizzy is one of those special, spirited dogs that keep us all going, even in the darkest hours of being in the trenches of animal rescue.” Linzi Glass, Executive Director of The Forgotten Dog Foundation shared.
