GREAT NEWS! Akira now named Malibu is HOME. Akira is a tri-pod rescued from New Dehli, India. She joined Kristi Jenning and Cody Muehlfelder and their son Mason of Genoa City, Wisconsin. Malibu has a K-9 sister named Bailey now.
It was love at first site. Sweet Malibu flashed her eyes at them and laid near Kristi’s feet and I think the bond was immediate. An hour later they were all playing in the yard and she was already bonded to them. Mason was busy taking pictures …and trying to train her while her new parents dotted on her.
Her life changed immediately – she was taken to PetSmart and spoiled with a bounty of new toys, treats and new collar and leash. The next day she was taken to Wood Dale Pet Resort for a spa experience where she had a bath and nail trim and all the pamperings that go with. Kelly the owner of Wood Dale Pet Resort loved on her and invited her back to play with their ISDF rescue named Azza. Oh it is a fairy tale story…. one for the books.
Couldn’t be happier for this lovely family and their new baby Malibu. This is a story of hope and proof that dreams do come true for the lucky few.
Thank you to Jagriti for rescuing this sweet girl and working so hard to make sure she had a better future. Most importantly thank you to Kristi and Cody for opening your hearts and home to Akira.
You too can save a life. www.istreetdog.com
AKIRA’S Rescue Story
Hi! Here are two things about me that you should know right away: 1) I am a tripod, and 2) You won’t believe it! I am a super active and energetic six months-old rescued female pup from New Delhi, India. I have faced several physical challenges in my young life, but I am now fully healed and filled with exuberance! I was rescued off the street when I was around 2.5 months-old. I was already missing my front right leg; I was in a vehicle accident, but I don’t really remember the details. My rescuer took good care of me and paid for amputation surgery, but I did not always stay inside her house. I wanted to explore! I often went back out to the street. Everything was ok until I had another accident. Ooops! I fractured my left hind leg. Then, my rescuer brought me to the loving staff at the Kannan Animal Welfare center. She promised to take me back to her home, but she didn’t. The wonderful people at KAW did not want to return me to the dangerous road – how many more accidents awaited? They have taken excellent care of me, especially when I had a second surgery on my amputated leg. The first surgery was not performed cleanly, so I thought I still had total use of my leg. To everyone else, they saw I was completely off-balance and using a “phantom” leg. My second surgery was successful! I think I am actually faster on three legs, not four!
