Welcome Home, Tèlo!
Pronounced Tay-Lo & means TRIPOD in
Tèlo is a unique creature with a somewhat unfortunate, yet common story, she was privately owned (a pet) which did not benefit her in any way, she was fed an improper diet, and injured her leg approximately a year ago and did not receive proper medical attention. Due to the lack of veterinary care she is virtually paralyzed from the hips down. It turns out, she does not have spinal damage, but a severe injury to her right hind leg - her hamstring was severed - and because of the lack of use her hindquarters have atrophied to the point of paralysis.
Throughout all of this, Tèlo has had the most amazing attitude! She is sweet and kind and loving, and will take a grape from just about everyone! She loves chin and armpit scratches, and will sing for total strangers.
Since she joined the Animal Tracks family, she has received necessary medical care, with many more vet visits in her future. We do physical therapy and daily medications, an expensive diet as well as enrichment and a strong mental stimulation plan, to impact her positively to the best of her abilities!
Tèlo is surrounded by people who love her and care for her, but she is going to require a village of supporters to help her live her best life!!!
