Today we feature a short but very sweet Tripawds Salute to Chevy! His Momma Nancy recently wrote to us via the Tripawds Facebook page and said:
This is Chevy, a pointer mix we adopted in March.
We were told he was hit by a car in South Carolina as a pup. A good samaritan took him off the road and a local rescue eventually stepped in just in time.
He was on the verge of organ failure from a massive infection/high fever but managed to pull through on antibiotics. He had his leg amputated a few days later.
A New York rescue group brought him up here. We found him when searching for a special needs dog to adopt and fell in love at first glance because he is the HAPPIEST dog we have ever met.
Don’t tell him he only has 3 legs!
