Yet, we were constantly worried about her siblings and her. They're so young and inexperienced with the dangers of industrial traffic. Puppies are incurably curious, fragile, and helpless. Living in an industrial estate was a recipe for disaster, an accident just waiting to happen.
And of course, as always, it happened.
Accidents, deaths - they don't surprise us any more. But every time a worker calls us, "Dog no move!" It never fails to cause our hearts to sink, and our stomachs lurch with dread. This time, the worker told us that they had found one of the five puppies holding her leg at a weird angle, with a suspected break.

We brought her to the vet and did the usual X-rays and tests. Thankfully, it was not a complicated issue and the vet fixed her up with a cast in no time. We named her Alyssa, and found her a foster home where she could rest while she healed.

|This cutie pie is very well-behaved for a puppy this young, can be left alone while you're at work. Independent and no separation anxiety|
But that just reminded us that she's just a baby! Can you even imagine such a little baby in so much pain? It's heartbreaking.

What is worse is that her 8 weeks of recovery time is almost up. And if we don't find her a real home in the next few days, she will have to return to the industrial site where we picked her up. She's already accustomed to living in a home environment; it would be unfair to put her back on the streets. Furthermore, after her cast is removed, she might need to go for hydrotherapy for rehabilitation. It's in her best interest to find an adopter quickly. And we're sure that anyone could love her. She is the ideal dog in so many ways.

Alyssa has already been trained to do her business outside, and despite being only 4 months old, she already knows how to hold her pee and poo until you bring her outside. She's so sweet and intelligent, and is such a well-behaved dog! She absolutely loves humans and is friendly with other dogs too, although she will avoid some dogs if she doesn't like them. She is very non-confrontational and calm. She's playful, like all puppies, and loves playing on the grass. However, she's also great on the leash and not too high energy.

Really, she is perfect. There's not a flaw in her character!
Please adopt Alyssa so she does not need to return to the streets! Give her a chance. You might be surprised at how easily she will fit into your life. To adopt Alyssa, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Alyssa is a female, local crossbreed. She is about 4+ months now and her cast has just been removed.
Basic requirements to adopting baby Alyssa :
1) she will need hydrotherapy for a while
2) home cooked meals
3) 2 walks a day
That's really not too much to ask for, is it?
