About Kelly Hope

  • Status: Available for Sponsorship
  • Species: Dog
  • Rescue ID: 20-0049
  • Color: Black and Tan
  • Current Age: 1 Year (best estimate)
To look at Kelly she looks like a happy, sweet, 2yr old dachshund mix... and she is all of those things. 
But she is hiding a secret.  
Kelly came into our care after she was found injured. The initial medical opinion was that it was a pelvic fracture and possibly an injury only requiring crate rest. DDRTX has received many dogs with pelvic fractures over the years and we knew we could help Kelly.
But Kelly’s happy smile was hiding her pain.
Upon a veterinarian exam it was revealed that she had a broken front leg, a dislocated hip, and multiple breaks to the left AND right side of her pelvis.
Only one leg was intact and unbroken.
When I got the report, I looked at Kelly and quite frankly asked her how she could smile with all the pain she was suffering.
Kelly has undergone a complicated and expensive surgery to repair her injuries. Her rehabilitation will involve months of medical care and dedication by our volunteers. 
Less than a week after surgery, she is standing.
She is able to take a few steps
but she still has a long way to a full recovery.


DDRTX values the life of every one of our dogs and we will do our best to give Kelly the best life possible. After all, her full name is Kelly Hope!
