Now living happily in Lincoln, Nebraska.
Late one night last November we received a call from the emergency clinic in Omaha about an 18 week old Westie/Maltese mix that had been hit by a car. Her owner stated that he wished to turn her over to a rescue group, that he had many previous animals injured and always turned them over to rescue. She was filthy, covered in fleas and in severe pain. We agreed to help. An HUA director went to check on her and decided to name her Sprite because she is so small, bright-eyed and elf-like with her big beautiful ears. Sprite underwent surgery for a shattered pelvis and as a result was ordered to a month of crate rest. This did not go over well with the little angel, because within a few days out of surgery she was raring to go. But, we had to follow the doctor's orders and Sprite stayed put until she was fully healed. She is now free to dance and play and wiggle and bounce all she wants. She is chock-full of enthusiasm and every day is a holiday. She is all puppy all the time - loves people and the other dogs and toys and blankets and everything! We are so thrilled that our baby was able to get the help she so desperately needed and delighted to know that soon she will be home where she belongs, looking forward to a lifetime of love and laughter.
