Hoover & Pepper Updates

Recommended Posts

Firdt Hoover went to see the surgeon yesterday about his malformed front leg. He is growing so fast-weighs 38.8 lbs & is all BOY!! It is going to be a long process to fix the bone plate problem. First the will cut the ulna & put a spacer in so both front leg bones can continue to grow at the same rate. When he has reached total leg legnth then there will have to be more surgery to stregthen the leg. We don't want any problems with the shoulder so this is the best way to go. Hoover can run but I can see that it is giving him some problems which will only get worse if left untreated. Of course both pups (Noel goes with us when we are gone for any legenth of time ) were a big hit both with all the doctors, staff & other owners. People could not believe that Noel is 9 months old & weighed in at 27.7 lbs. There was a very beautiful GSD there that wasn't interested in seeing his parents, only wanted to meet the pups!


Pepper is a sweet non tattoed white/black boy that I picked up a month ago. He just walked up to a man working in the yard & was so covered with ticks & flies it was terrible. This kind family took him in & gave him several baths, pulled all the ticks off while he just stood there. He has put some weight on & now is 57 lbs but still looks like death. He was not heartworm positivebut does have ehrlichia. This dog is just a year old & it's a good thing I don't know who had him before he found his angel. It is going to take a long time to get him in shape to go to M&Gs. Also he has a very strange bark & a friend said it is possible his vocal cords were cut as she has a Dal that came frome a drug house that had the same type of bark. It only took Pepper 2 days to learn to ask to go out to potty & he gets along with the other dogs at Laura's house. When I took him up there he was very scared to go inside & Shorty ( the 14 yr old Corgi) went up

to him & started giving him kisses so he followed her inside. It is amazing how the old dogs just know when a new one needs some doggie TLC as well as human TLC.


These 2 boys & Noel are really stretching our finances so people, please don't be irritated at us for not taking in any more dogs for a while. Please keep these special needs dogs in your thoughts as they are going to need all the help they can get.
