Kimber of Turkey

Meet Kimber of Turkey:
“I discovered this girl laying on our base, near our housing area. She was on the ground and she wasn’t moving. I approached her concerned that she might actually be dead. As I approached her tail started to wag and she looked at me, but other than that she wasn’t moving. I saw blood on her head and her legs. I started calling base agencies and the fire department happened to be driving by. I flagged them down and they advised me to call our Military Working Dog veterinarian. I stayed with the pup for an hour until the vet arrived. We thought she had been hit by a vehicle, but the vet brought her in and began treating her. It turns out she had been shot several times with the worst injuries to her back leg. The vet said they would care for any animal in a life threatening situation but after that they had to release her off of our base a fair distance away to deter her from returning. So she definitely needs someone to intervene soon in order to save her. She’s safe for the near future though. She is doing much better as I am visiting her daily. She is a fighter and deserves a good life after all she has been through. My plan is to adopt her myself. I do, however, have another dog at home when I return from my deployment. If they get along, I really want to make her a part of my family. As her temperament is unknown with another domesticated animal, if there is an issue between this pup and mine at home, I will need to find her another home. I want to do what’s best for this pup, so if there is another family that wants to adopt I’d be open to that as well. She is a friendly, goofy, character. In spite of her serious and painful injuries, she responded extremely well to treatment that included a lot of painful poking and prodding, during which all this pup wanted to do was give kisses. She never had to be muzzled regardless of what was being done to her. She is friendly, walks great on a leash, never messes in her kennel (only goes outside) and seems to be a low energy dog. She loves to eat and weighs 75 pounds. She is already responding to a few basic commands as well. She is a sweetheart. “
