Update 3.6.16: Our Grace girl is doing so much better after her pin removal. She continues with rehab and we are treating her for a bone infection. This girl has been through so much and I just can’t wait until the day that she gets to go to her permanent home. How awesome is Grace’s foster mom- getting Grace nice and socialize at CrossFit this morning. Apparently Grace was completely unphased by the dropping of weights and all the loud noises that come along with a gym.
Update 2.20.16: Grace was back at the specialty hospital for a check-up and re-evaluation . She has regurgitation, diarrhea, and still isn’t weight bearing on that leg. Keep her in your thoughts please.
Grace (which CCR has named her) was brought into an emergency vet 1-25-16. Her owner had just bought her and said he was shoveling snow and a truck, also shoveling snow, ran over his 4mos old cane corso puppy.
The owner didn’t have any money to vet her and requested humane euthanasia. A vet hospital employee/vet tech asked the owner if he would surrender her and she would find a rescue to help her. The owner agred. The emergency vet is a Veterinary Specialty Hospital during the day and they immediately reached out to Cane Corso Rescue. CCR of course welcomed her with open arms and the village rallied to raise funds to ensure she received the medical care she desperately needed. After having her hips x-rayed to be sure they were in good shape, Grace was taken into surgery to place 2 pins in her femur. Because it was an open wound and bone was exposed (CAUTION GRAPHIC IMAGE INCLUDED as you can see her femur exposed in the photo), there is a high chance for infection.
After a few hours of waiting and praying, we are happy to report that Gracy’s surgery was a huge success and she is recovering nicely in her foster home. They anticipated recovery time is 6 weeks as long as there are no further complications. The hardware will be removed at a later time, and the hospital will not charge extra for this. We are very grateful to the vet for their exceptional care and reduction of cost.
Once Grace recovers fully, she will become available for adoption! CCR would like to express our sincere appreciation to all those wonderful humans who donated toward Grace’s medical care needs as had it not been for your generosity and kindness this beautiful baby would not be with us today. Thank you for your support!
In addition the Grace’s surgery, she has been completely vetted, spayed, micro-chipped, and is current on heartworm and flea/tic prevention. If you are interested in adopting Grace, please complete an application and we will process as quickly as possible
