Chuy Hops On

Chuy was rescued from the streets of San Felipe Mexico. He was found with his front left leg degloved, infected and hanging loose. The rescue decided the best thing to do was amputate. He was only 6 months old at the time. Two months later, Chuy was ready for adoption. Along came our home, we were looking for a companion for our dog Gretchen. Chuy hit it off with her right away.

Chuy, on his gotcha day.

Not long after that, he slipped on the tile in our home and fractured the head of his femur on his left rear leg. The vet discovered that he has Legg Calve Perthes disease. They performed FHO surgery, removing the head of the femur. The vet said they didn’t know if Chuy would ever walk again. He proved them wrong! With the help of swim therapy, physical therapy and his stubborn attitude, Chuy learned not only to do the Tripawd hop, but to sit up pretty! He is still one happy dude to this day.
