Last spring a very young Malinois was playing exuberantly with her owner when she broke a leg. The owner was unable to afford to fix the leg and turned her over to another rescue program. PUP (People United for Pets) in Washington State had her leg fixed, which required the insertion of a pin but after a few weeks she started clubbing her foot and lost all physical condition during the five weeks of confinement. They recognized they simply did not have the appropriate setup needed to prevent her from doing further damage to her foot. In other words Destra was being a Malinois, constantly in motion. They asked us if we could take her into foster care and we agreed!

Destra since coming into ABMC Rescue!

As a result of the broken leg and 6 months of infections that have plagued her Destra now needs her entire back leg amputated.
