(RESCUE DOGS/CUTE ANIMAL VIDEOS) French Bulldog Bethanee Hamilton was found abandoned on the side of the road outside Portland, Oregon. She was sent to a local shelter where she flat-lined while undergoing a routine spaying surgery. Miraculously, she came back to life.
Shortly after, Pacific Northwest Bulldog Rescue, which rescues and re-homes English and French Bulldogs in need, stepped in and soon discovered that her back left paw was rapidly swelling. It was confirmed that Beth had a cancerous mast cell, and unfortunately the only cure was to remove the leg.
By chance, her now-guardian Lindsay, applied to adopt this sick pup in need, despite hundreds of applicants ahead of her in line. Luckily for Lindsay, who is a freelance designer with a flexible schedule, she was the perfect candidate as she’s able to provide 24-7 care for this special dog.
Adopting Bethanee just a month after her surgery, Lindsay created an Instagram account, “PardonThyFrench,” to document Beth’s recovery, and the creative adjustments that adapting to three legs would require.
