Sep 2017: Meet sweet Topher. He was owner surrendered to police when they arrived to do a welfare check on the dog. He was seen at a local ER hospital where they cast his front leg for a break that had been left untreated. Topher previously had a broken right elbow that was treated in August, but this second break was not. The location of the break makes it difficult to rebreak but the orthopedic specialists feel the prognosis is good to try and correct it. He will never be 100% but this needed surgery and rehab will give him a good quality of life now and in the future.
Thanks to Shaunna for fostering Topher and getting him the care and love he deserves. We can't believe how much better he looks already! We are so happy the specialists feel they can repair some of the damage and improve things for Topher. Also a huge thank you to the vizsla community who stepped up to raise the $4500 for his surgery and rehab. Thanks much everyone!
Jan 2020: Topher is thriving today with Shaunna & Russ & Dexter.
