This is a very special story… please read on…

ADELE was born five years ago, in a small mountain village in Bulgaria. ADELE´s first contact with the world was one of pain and brutality, following local customs her “owner” cut her ears with a rusty blade. The result, an infection she carried for years.

It wasn´t long until a local neighbour saw her desperate condition and rescued her. Adele was a beautiful puppy with striking looks and a wonderful character, but something wasn´t quite right with her legs.

ADELE was incapable of walking properly. She would try to make a few steps but the pain would be too much and she would sit, crying.

This was her childhood. Unbearable pain every time she tried to walk. ADELE COULDN´T STOP CRYING.

ADELE was then sent from Bulgaria to Germany, to a wonderful rescue group in Munich who took her to one of the best trauma surgeons in Germany. The diagnosis was devastating. ADELE had Third degree double patella (knee) luxation as well as bilateral deformity on both femurs that would ultimate end in severe arthrosis. ADELE would soon be completely incapacitated and would live the rest of her life in pain.

The vet suggested euthanasia.

It was at that point that we were asked for help. ADELE would die unless we did something… A few days later ADELE was on plane on her way to us.

That was three years ago…

From the outset, we knew her case would be extremely complicated, we were very small at the time and not really equipped to take on such a long and complicated treatment but we never gave up.

Technically, it was a nearly impossible surgery, but we managed to improve slightly the position of her knees, and we alleviated her pain. However, at that time we didn´t have access to the technology necessary to perform her final surgery. We were talking about a double knee replacement and realigning of both femurs. NOONE HAD PERFORMED THIS SURGERY BEFORE…

PLEASE WATCH ADELE´S VIDEO…

WE HAD TO WAIT THREE YEARS UNTIL VETERINARY SCIENCE ADVANCED TO THE POINT WHERE THIS SURGERY COULD BE PERFORMED WITH COMPLETE GUARANTEES.

Finally, the time has arrived… WE FINALLY HAVE EVERYTHING WE NEEDED TO MAKE THIS SURGERY A SUCCESS… ADELE´S NIGHTMARE IS OVER.

ADELE WILL NEVER HAVE TO CRY AGAIN…
