Dog Success Stories
Mac came to us as a 3-year-old Newfoundland. He was surrendered by his owners after being hit by a car. He had a broken leg and a Pneumothorax (air in his chest). He was hospitalized for almost 10 days and had a tube in his chest, so his Doctor could remove the air that was building up. In addition to having multiple surgeries to repair his broken leg, he was losing weight and vomiting. Mac had an endoscopy done and a feeding tube placed. He has finally started gaining weight and playing like a dog should. He loves attention and loves to play with children and any dog that will play with him. He slept with his foster’s cats and would give up his bed to them. He is a wonderful dog that deserved another chance. Without help from caring Doctors, Technicians, and those who just wanted to give a dog a second chance, Mac would have been euthanized because his owners could no longer financially care for him.
Peter is a Male 3 to 4-year-old Terrier/Poodle mix who was brought in after being hit by a car. He was a stray dog that has been seen around the neighborhood for about a year and a half. The lady who brought him in paid for the majority of his treatment but couldn’t keep him herself and appreciated Guardians taking over his care.
Peter had multiple Pelvic fractures, a Sacral fracture, and a fractured Femur. He has had surgery and is still recovering but has been doing well so far. Hopefully, he’ll be able to be a normal dog after his full recovery. He is great with other dogs, and although he hasn’t interacted much with cats, it’s a safe bet that he’s happy with them as well. He was super shy in the beginning but is getting better. We think he’ll turn out to be a great dog!
Bucket is a young spayed Female Long Haired Chihuahua Mix that was dumped at a local Animal Hospital. When Guardians took over her care, she was very thin and unhealthy. Bucket was found to have a linear string foreign body in her GI tract and an Intussusception. She was then taken to surgery and had 50 % of her small intestines removed. So far, she is recovering well. Bucket is super friendly and energetic! Most pictures of her are blurry because this young lady is very happy and on the go! She gets along well with dogs, cats, & humans, adores hugs & belly rubs, and is up for adoption!
Crash, a Male neutered Chihuahua, about 2 years old came to us after being hit by a car. He had a left Coxofemoral Joint Luxation and Pelvic Fractures. He had surgery to correct his injuries and was also neutered at that time. Crash also goes by the nickname “Little Man”. He is super energetic and loves walks! Crash is currently available for foster or adoption, and sleeps well in a bed or crate!
These are pictures of a little chihuahua mix named Wiley. He was on the euthanasia list at the shelter. We got him out and he turned out the be one of the sweetest dogs ever.
This is Charlie, our Terrier mix who came into another ER clinic with a Chicken bone stuck in his Esophagus. The original owner was going to put him to sleep rather than have it Endoscopically removed. So instead, the Doctor on duty offered to take responsibility. He is now recovered and has been doing great. He’s the best little dog.
