Name: Gypsy

Breed:  Mastiff X
Born: 22nd March 2016
Sex:  Female
Adoption Fee:  $300.00
BIN: 0000292198263

 

About:  Our Gypsy girl was out wandering the streets and was rescued by a lady and brought to Yaps on March 21 2018. 
It was soon obvious why she was out wandering as could do this amazing high jump!! so it was a completely fenced secure yard for this girl.
At some stage during her “high jump training” she injured her leg so after some rest time etc is did not get any better. An operation was performed to repair the Laterally Luxating Patella. Sadly the operation was not a success.she was putting no weight on the leg and we knew it was painful for her. After consulting with the vet it was decided the best thing to do for Gypsy was to amputate the leg as she was not using it anyway. The operation went very well and Gypsy is now pain free and enjoying life to the fullest.
She is a real people girl,loves spending time cuddling and just hanging out with you.  Gypsy can be a bit shy when you first meet her and especially with men but with patience and lots of TLC you will have the most loving girl ever.
Gypsy will still need to have a secure yard and be allowed to hang out inside when you are out, hopefully now with only 3 legs her “high jumping” days are restricted!!
