March 2017: Here I am back at SCARS. We found out something about me that wasn’t in my original bio – I do not do well with cats. I chase them and that’s why I’m now looking for a new forever home.
I think I have a great story ( below). A bit about myself, I am a couple of years old I was previously neutered as a community dog through the Alberta Spay Neuter Task Force. I am super friendly with a great personality. I am a large guy, probably 80-90 pounds when I regain some weight. When I arrived into care I didn’t have a name, all I had was the tattoo from the Task Force.
Sept 2016:All that was legible on my ear tattoo was 630. That’s where my name came from. You just know that I’m a survivor with a name like that! How may years has 630 CHED been on the AM dial? Many decades.
When I was rescued, I was very thin and weak. The femur in my right hind leg was broken and the injury was old. The bone was trying to mend itself, and with my muscles atrophying around the bone, this type of break is extremely hard to repair. My veterinary team worked many hours to plate the bone back together and give me a chance to have use of my leg again. Thanks to Dr. Tannis Jackson and Dr. Trevor Jackson for your skill and commitment.
Well it has been a couple of weeks since surgery and I am pleased to report my leg is doing better than expected. I am able to touch my foot to the ground and put a little weight on it. It is very positive, but my veterinary care team, tells me the key to my recovery is lots of rest and I can’t put too much weight on the leg or I could jeopardize the plate holding it together.
