So here is Chevy’s story:
He is a Newnan Coweta Humane Society (NCHS) foster dog. Chevy was hit by a vehicle some months ago and suffered many injuries. Recently he was dumped on a gravel road, just left behind. Still this boy looks at everyone with love.
A caring individual called County Animal Services and Chevy was taken to the County Shelter. They determined that his injuries were too severe for them to treat and called NCHS for help.
Chevy was taken to the vet for immediate trauma care and pain management. He was then referred to Auburn University Veterinary School. This week, this great boy had an orthopedic consult and his first surgery.
Chevy’s rear right leg has a fracture that is healing very incorrectly and causing him pain. The surgery this week included re-breaking the right rear leg and inserting interlocking screws into the bone to help the leg heal and be the correct length. He has been such a loving, kissing boy through it all. He has not been released from Auburn yet but should come home to his foster by tomorrow.
Once Chevy recovers from this surgery, it is probable that he will have to have his front left leg amputated. He has a Brachial Plexus injury to that leg.
Please send your love to Chevy, he has a long road to recovery ahead of him. We are so happy he is in the best of foster care.
