March 29, 2010 - when Mika came into rescue with Moonsong

Mika when she arrived in foster care with Moonsong Malamute Rescue before she had a bath and was groomed.

Sometime after this photo was taken Mika jumped off a deck in the "dog play area" and tore her ACL (Anterior Cruciate Ligament) in her right back leg.  She had a surgery to repair this injury.  However, over a period of a few months, it was not appearing to heal properly.  

In August 2010, Niki, one of the Moonsong volunteers, decided to foster Mika at her home at Tetonia, Idaho and meanwhile get some more diagnoses made to determine what the problem was.  The general opinion finally was that Mika would need a new and different surgery to repair the ACL again.  This would be an expensive operation and it would take time for Moonsong to raise the necessary funding before it could happen.
