My daughter adopted Scarlet in June and she has been the most loving, wonderful addition to our family. Katherine and Scarlet participated in the Botanical Gardens Reindeer Dog Parade and won first place for the dress-a-like category. J She’s a very special dog!
We just returned from vacation last Tuesday and learned that Scarlet had disc disease and that one of her discs had ruptured. She needed emergency surgery and was paralyzed at the time of surgery. After the surgery, based on the amount of inflammation on the spinal cord, they were very concerned whether she would recover or not. When she awoke from surgery, they were shocked that she had feeling back in her legs! They call her the miracle dog.
We are on day 6 post surgery and Scarlet is doing wonderful. She wagged her tail on Saturday, moved one of her legs yesterday and tried to push herself up with her hind legs today. So, we are very encouraged that she will be able to walk again.
Please share with the crew at Atlanta Pet Rescue. Everyone who comes into contact with her just loves her and right now she could use all the love, prayers and support she can get!
Thank you ~ Deb P.
