LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - Our third Best Furry Friend, Apple has found her forever home.
Apple, a 1-year-old Manchester terrier mix, was surrendered to the Kurth Memorial Animal Shelter with her 5 puppies, all of which have been adopted except for one, Monkey.
Apple is also in the process of receiving treatment for heartworm's.
Staff and volunteers put a call out to East Texans to help raise money for Apple's treatment and an amputation surgery.
The shelter has raised enough money to pay for her surgery. Apple has a disability that renders one of her front paws unusable and after much consideration from the veterinarian, they agreed that it was in Apple's best interest to amputate the leg.
