This is Pupper. His name suits him because although be may a little grey in the beard and mustache areas, he still acts very much like a pup.
Pupper was his dad’s shadow and they were best friends. Pupper and a very good friend helped Pupper’s dad through some very difficult and hard times in his life.
About three weeks before coming in to VREC, Pupper’s dad passed away and Pupper moved in with his dad’s friend who had been there with Pupper when his dad needed help. It only made sense that this friend should step-in for Pupper, and his dad, in another time of need.
Pupper came to VREC because he developed GDV – Gastric Dilitation Volvulous. A condition where the stomach bloats with gas and then flips on it’s axis. Bloat is bad enough, but the volvulous is often deadly and a dire emergency.
Pupper’s extended family could not afford the surgery so the Angel Fund covered the cost required for supplies, and the staff all donated their talents and efforts so Pupper could receive the surgical intervention and medical aftercare he needed.
We are happy to report that Pupper did great, and made a full recovery. He’s living life to the fullest, making people happy, and that reunion with his dad will have to wait just a little while longer.
Love you Pupper!!!!!
