Say 'Hiya' to Shya! Her story is one that went from heartbreaking to heartwarming. Shya is approximately six years old and a Hound mix. She was picked up as a stray by animal control and taken to the Lenoir County SPCA shelter in North Carolina in mid-November. It was obvious that Shya had been on her own for a long time. Not only was she emaciated, but she had an old injury to her front right leg. It had been broken and healed in a very unusual way. A vet who evaluated her did not think Shya was in pain; however, he was concerned about her having arthritis in the leg. She did walk and put weight on the leg, but sometimes she held it up. All of this made it all the more difficult for Shya to find a rescue.
