After a Recent Amputation, Cleo is Resilient and Ready for Her Forever Home

TWO WEEKS AGO, Houston Humane Society employees had a surprise waiting for them when they pulled into work. A young dog was tied to a tree in their parking lot. The retriever-labrador mix was taken in and given the name Cleo.


She had a severe infection from an open wound in her front left leg. It was quickly discovered that the infection was so severe that the leg needed to be amputated to prevent the infection from spreading.

The one-year-old — who is already spayed — has already recovered and is now looking for her forever home. She is a resilient girl who has nothing but love to give!

Cleo is available for adoption from Houston Humane Society. The Houston Humane Society is dedicated to ending cruelty, abuse and the overpopulation of animals in the Houston area.
