Here is what Chrissy's family had to say about her:
Seven years ago I was running my single seat antique race car through a friend’s date orchard in Coachella.
As I stopped to check on some issues with the car out of nowhere this dog, obviously on her last legs painfully wandered over and tried to crawl in the cockpit with me.
Since there was no room for the two of us I drove back to the garage, got my passenger car, and went to the store to buy a bag of dog food for her.
On the way back I encountered a lady (Chris) wintering nearby who had spotted the dog and was wanting to help save her. Together we got her into my passenger car and after naming her after the lady (Chrissy) I drove her home.
She was immediately loving and friendly and I discovered she was a pit bull and rewarded us with eating a section of rug which caused a blockage and required major surgery. She survived the surgery and has thrived in our home along with several rescued cats and dogs.
Recently she developed a cancer in both of her legs and one leg had to be amputated by Dr. Carlson and the team at Village Park. The surgery has been successful and she quickly learned to navigate on all 3 legs and is getting back to her normal self.
The medical care and after care at Village Park has been outstanding. Every member of the staff demonstrate caring and professionalism towards us and Chrissy.
