I wanted to give you an update on Dooney. I adopted him from Chesed on 11/02/2011. He is definitely the love of my life. We just celebrated our one year anniversary. We did have a horrible experience last March 5th during our morning walk when he was attacked in my community by a pit bull mix and hurt very badly. He had extensive internal injuries and his left hind leg was totally paralyzed from nerve damage.
I immediately took him to Dr. Marc who stabilized him and sent us to the Coral Springs Animal Hospital for surgery that afternoon. It was rough going but he is a tough little guy and he made it through the surgery fine. After he recovered from surgery, we worked for several months with the Physical Therapist at the Coral Springs Animal Hospital and lots of home exercises and he regained full use of his leg.
Dooney is a happy, healthy perfect pup again. I can’t say enough about Dr. Marc Werthaiser, Dr. Elizabeth Rawson his surgeon, Shari, his PT and everyone at the Coral Springs Animal Hospital. They turned a horrible potentially deadly experience into a happy ending.
. Thanks again for rescuing him and letting me adopt him. It was love at first sight the day I saw him and we are bonded for ever .
