First UPDATE on MIMI’s Progress: MIMI left the specialty hospital after her 2/7 spay & surgery to fix the Grade 4 luxated patella in her left knee. She is back in Last Hope foster care.

MIMI is doing well, being weaned off pain meds and looks like a princess in her cushy bed. MIMI will recover from 8 to 12 weeks before Dr. Lesser corrects her right knee. After the next recovery, she will be getting PT to strengthen both new knees.

MIMI is no more than 2 years old & came into Brookhaven Town Shelter in January as a frightened stray, supposedly found in Mastic Beach by a Good Samaritan.
How could this tiny dog run away or fend for herself?
She has such a hard time walking.

Both of her back legs were bowed outward, and she walks down on her haunches like a frog..

The complex operations are quite expensive. We raised several thousand $ at our Bowlathon for MIMI’s KNEES, but have a way to go to meet our goal. Last Hope overwhelmed by the kind people contributing to her care. We are overwhelmed by the kind people contributing to her care.
