Breed: German Shepherd
Update – Tito
Shepherd mix who came to us with extreme pain in the neck region . He lived his life on a chain . Tito required Neurosurgery.
Approximately one month post op after Neurosurgery Tito is doing magnificent. He just got a great post op check up . Tito is a low key boy with a fantastic personality. He gets along beautiful with other dogs and bonds heavily with his person . Tito will require another few weeks of restricted activity. We love this boy and will soon be looking for the very best permanent home .
Neurosurgery for Tito went extremely well . After 5 days he was checked out of VCA in Fishers , Indiana. Our thanks to Dr. Johnny Cross and staff for the excellent care they provided for Tito .
Tito has not screamed out in pain since his neurosurgery! He also can lift his head now . Tito must have very little activity for the next 4 weeks and stay on his prescribed medications. Cheryl Noggle and Rick Jervis are his foster parents and traveled the two hour trip to pick up our boy today ! We count this as a true miracle compared to the excruciating pain this baby was in upon intake . Our hope is that Tito continues to improve each day !
