& Here is Another One of Madison... Click Here, Too!!!

A HAPPY ENDING... MIRACLE HAS BEEN ADOPTED & HER NEW NAME IS MADISON!

Miracle was adopted by one of the staff veterinarians that had cared for her through all of her traumatic surgeries & her painstaking rehabilitation. We may never catch her siblings' killers nor know who did this to her... but we know that she is now safe, is very healthy & extremely well loved.

Madison is very close to 1 year of age now and is settled in quite nicely with her adopting family. She can run & jump & outplay most dogs her age but still needs a special boot on her one feet. She will negotiate a few stairs if she is motivated but has ramps at home that she loves. She recently completed the 2 mile Tear Foundation Fundraiser walk and had a lot of fun with all of the other dogs. She loves to chase her Frisbee in the field and is an excellent retriever! Madison also loves to swim but wears a life jacket "just in case". Just like a small child, she can be difficult to get out of the water to go home. Sometimes, she plays too hard & needs to be carried home. She continues to come to work daily and loves all the attention that she can get.

We want to thank everyone for their support over the past year & attribute her continued success with everyone who supported her & her doctors at OVRS & through the Tear Foundation. Thank you to everyone also who has inquired about Miracle (now Madison) & for sending her & her forever family best wishes!

Miracle continues to thrive in her home!

Miracle is grateful to everyone who helped her... so much so that she will gladly share her favorite toy for a good round of play time!

At just barely 4 pounds, it takes a coward to do something like this to such a little innocent soul.

Miracle continues to thrive but still will need more surgeries to help her gain the mobility she desperately desire.

An Update on Miracle's Condition... by her primary doctor, Dr. Saundra Hewitt

"Miracle is continuing to do very well. She is now 12 lbs! She is eating very well and loves to play with her toys. The scar tissue continues to hamper her walking in the hind end but the last surgery on her right hind limb has given her much more mobility and is almost healed. She will need reconstructive surgery on her left leg in the future. Overall, she is much more comfortable and usually sleeps on her back, all four legs in the air, snoring like a bear. She has learned to shake paws and to sit. She will come when called most of the time and really enjoys all the attention that she can get. She has lost most of her baby teeth. She continues to require intensive daily physical therapy but is showing consistent improvement."
Written by Dr. Saundra Hewitt, Miracle's primary doctor who is a orthopedic board certified surgeon. Dr. Hewitt takes Miracle home with her every night on a volunteer basis to make sure she is getting the proper continued recovery. Dr. Hewitt, you are Miracle's angel!
