Three years ago, in January 2014, we received an urgent message from a rescuer in Lawton, Oklahoma about a little tzu that had been hit by a car. That amazing rescuer, Sharleen Gehers, arranged to get Lucky stabilized in Lawton and then she drove overnight so that we could get him treated immediately at Gulf Coast Veterinary Hospital.
Read the initial story about Lucky HERE.
The photos from Sharleen were heartbreaking.
Lucky was badly broken. Broken femur. Luxated pelvis. Badly, badly broken. But thankfully the skilled surgeons at Gulf Coast were able to repair him.
After many weeks of recovery and rehab, Lucky was adopted into a fabulous home.
Thanks to one of our fabulous volunteers, Kathy, who contacted the adopters, we can share this amazing update….
Lucky Lawton, now known as Ben, is again living in Oklahoma with his new mommy Mary. Ben is the most cat-like dog you might ever meet. He enjoys sleeping, cuddling, but gets an extra burst of energy when it is time for his evening walk. Ben is truly a part of our family and we couldn’t imagine our lives without him.
Lone Star Shih Tzu and Lhasa Apso Rescue, its vets, and supporters perform the miracles. Miracles that enable broken dogs like Lawton to go on living the wonderful lives they were put on this earth to live.
