This wonder boy came to us through a family that saved him from being taken to
County Pound. Once here at the Sanctuary, we put him on a regular meal routine and with several walks a day, has already
lost 15 lbs. It's amazing what a little love and attention will do. His owner didn't care for him very well and
would end up leaving him with friends for weeks at a time. He didn't receive proper nutrition or have regular
exercise - he became an outside boy. His owner decided she couldn't care for him an ymore so family members reached out
to the canine community for help. Scooter came over to meet everyone and the rest is history. He is on his way
to being a little trimmer by getting regular meals and daily exercise. He is too overweight to run yet, but we are working
on that. He needs to drop 35 lbs - can he do it? YES HE CAN.
30th - Scooter is working very hard and it's really worth it. He has lost about 15 lbs. and can hop (not run yet),
can lift his leg to urinate and can fit through the doggie door - THAT IS BIG STUFF!!!!!
Scooter has lost 20 lbs. and has just undergone a stem cell procedure for the arthritis in his front legs. It will take
another 30 days for us to see the full results but we are hoping for a favorable outcome. Will keep everyone posted
on his progress.
