Abby's All Better--Praise the Lord!

Inch diameter hole January 2012 after attack
3-24-12 only a small slit
Back in mid-January Abby (our dog) was attacked by two Rotweilers off leash and bitten 15 times all over her body. She was rushed to our vet in critical condition and had a big hole on the inside of her back leg that was about an inch in diameter. The vet said it would have to heal from the inside out and would take time. Thank God, it has finally completely closed up without getting infected.

The vet asked if he could take a picture of it healed up so they could show people that these things can heal. He said a lot of people would have had their dog euthanized if it was in such bad shape as Abby was. He thought that perhaps by showing people the pictures, it would encourage them to save their dog.

Saturday was our final follow-up visit and the hole is gone.  It actually did close up.  Now we can resume her advanced training classes and hopefully get her accepted as a therapy dog to visit hospitals and nursing homes.
3-31 12 all closed up--no more hole!

Oh, thank goodness!!! Boy, that was so darn scary. Is she nervous now when she goes for walks? Does she have fear of other dogs that she did not have before?

Wonderful news!! So glad she is all better and healed up so nicely!

Way to go Abby! She really is a Wonder Dog!

I'm so happy that Abby came through this so well. I would have done the same thing. Save her versus putting her down. We love our Little Bit like you both love Abby.

Have a terrific day. :)

Great news! That's wonderful that your vet wants to make Abby a "poster child"!
