He isn’t walking on his own just yet but he is a lot stronger than he was. We have been best friends since he was 8 weeks. Until he is walking momma will have him looking cute on his stroller walks. Everyone stares at him cause he looks healthy and def not 15. I say let’s give them something fo stare at❤️.

Charlie68 viewsCharlie is an extremely happy and very lovable dog. He loves attention and his injury doesn't affect him in the slightest. He has been given up twice, once before injury then again after his injury. After his injury,three vets suggested he should be put to sleep. He is high maintenance due to his injury and at times can be overwhelming, but he is all worth it! He loves to be outside and the sling would be very helpful in giving him some freedom to move around. Thank you for considering Charlie!Nov 21, 2019

116 viewsChrisD's Fritz went down January 2014. I tried to get him in some medical trials but no go. I decided to use crate rest. I had no choice. Luckily he didn't lose his bowel control. He leaked a bit and that's it. He was on crate rest for 6 months and I followed dodger list recommendations. He escaped out of his crate once and I wanted to be extra sure he was healed up so I added some extra time. At first he was on pain meds but I gradually weaned him off those. He hasn't had a relapse.
