April, 2012 - Rest In Peace, dear Mr. Petie!
Mr. Petie - a case study in a life of neglect - one look at his
eyes tells his tale.
Petie's eyes speak: Will you be mine? You're not kidding? REALLY??
this is not my Ninja Turtle pose - it's an ignored ACL/CCL injury,
coupled with my Wobbler's-like spinal issues...
is my Forever Rehab Heaven!!
Petie is an 11 year-old Doberman who's owner became terminally
ill and was no longer able to care for him. Understandably he
is is anxious and confused but he is starting to feel more comfortable
in his new foster home. He has Wobblers and an old cruciate injury
that was left untreated and is now scarred over. He has been placed
on thyroid meds and has a heart murmur. Inspite of all his medical
troubles his bloodwork is excellent. He is being spoiled and loved
by his foster parents and he seems to be enjoying the attention,
love, treats, and toys. Petie loves cuddling and will remain with
this foster family for the rest of his days.

areas: Northeastern states including New England
