Quick Monty update

by austinpetsalive • Posted in: Special Needs Pets

Monty just went for his 4 week check up and the vet says he is doing wonderfully. He now weighs 33 pounds. Remember he started out at 22. He does eat everything insight, including all house plants and roses.

We have been given the okay to increase his activity (which has been extremely hard to control). He has started to run and is using all his legs. He sometimes favors his left leg that still has the pins in it but they said that should change once the pins come out. He can now put his front paws on my bed and only stand on his back legs (the ones that were crushed) so he is definitely coming along. I think he will be able to get in bed on his own soon. He definitely loves to play and has made so many friends.

    I was fortunate enough to see this lucky little guy last week. Tina(his foster mom and hopefully fulltime mom soon) is a good friend of mine.She brought him over to my house for me to see him. He is so sweet,cute and loving. He was running in my backyard, and though he does have a tendancy to drag one of his back legs, to see him running after other dogs brought tears to my eyes. This little guy is doing so well. Tina and his team of therapists, vets, etc, are doing an amazing job with him, and I wanted to let everyone know…..He is a very special boy.
    Thank you.
