8 days post op –
Jethro is still at Blue Pearl recovering from surgeries done to stabilize multiple fractures . Today his right back leg was evaluated and his cast was replaced . His right front leg was evaluated as well . Jethro is hesitant to place his front leg on the ground . He will receive physical therapy today and we are watching closely . Jethro tested positive for several tick borne diseases and is starting treatment for that . He was covered in ticks !
I can’t begin to tell you how wonderful the personality of this boy is ! He just wants to love and to be loved .

The Arrow Fund – New Intake
Hound mix found in ditch in Pulaski County , Kentucky with multiple fractures. He was there for days suffering in the ditch … He is unable to stand .
The Arrow Fund was contacted and we said we would help this sweet boy . We have named him Jethro . Jethro was in extreme pain . He is now at Blue Pearl and under 24 hour advanced care . He will be stabilized and surgeries will most likely take place Monday . Jethro has an Olecranon Ulna front leg fracture. His right rear leg has a fractured ankle and broken metatarsals. He has several surface wounds . He is on adequate pain meds to cover his pain , antibiotics, and fluids . This poor boy was also covered in ticks .
I want to thank his transporters Harry Evans and Rick Jervis . Also thanks to Cheryl Noggle for meeting transport. A big shout to all who reached out to help Jethro ! I just came from visiting him and he is so sweet. We are so honored that we were able to say yes to this precious baby !
