Sophie- Recovering like it’s ‘No Big Deal’

December 14, 2012 0

We rescued Sophie from Milwaukee and pulled her within the hour of her euthanasia time. She is the best doggie you could ever ask for: loving, sweet to humans, loves kiddos and is every dog’s best friend. She even likes cats!


She was in physical therapy while we determined the best course of action for her hip and leg issues. Many doctors were involved and finally decided that Sophie needed something called a FHO surgery, or a femoral head removal – basically they cut off the joint of her femur, and hope that the muscles in her hips will bind to the femur instead.


She had her surgery and everything went well. We were even more excited when a rehabilitation technician named Nikki came forward and wanted to foster Sophie. In her foster home she got spoiled and even got to go to work with Nikki and continue in her rehabilitation exercises. She is doing great and we couldn’t be happier for the little wiggle butt!
