Welcome to Dog Ranch Rescue Groot.
He loves checking out everything and it helps him get rid of some of his puppy energy!
You might say I have a toddler on my hands who keeps me busy and running when he’s out and about but his happiness is contagious!”
Actually for being a puppy he has done really well. His cast is wrapped when we go out just to prevent it from getting accidentally peed on and keep it dry and clean. He’s a sweetheart. Loves belly rubs and treats and has only had one accident in his crate.
The little man is settling in and resting. He drank a lot once he got here then immediately went to sleep. Cindy said he hadn’t peed at all and he still didn’t the first time I took him out but the next time he peed a river and I’m sure he felt a lot better. He wolfed his dinner down and I’ll be feeding him multiple times a day to get his weight up. The ER has him listed as 6 mos old and 14.8 lbs. Just a little guy! The surgical center said he should have some kind of cast cover to keep his cast dry and clean which might be hard with him so young. I’ve got a couple ordered that I’m going to try but until then I’m using a small garbage bag and it worked really well. He’s going to be on crate rest/restricted activity for quite some time. Lots of bandage changes then possibly physical therapy. He is super sweet and gave me kisses.
I will update when I know more, but rest assured right now his pain is now a thing of the past.
Groot is out of surgery. The fracture has been repaired with a plate and screws and Dr Wilkins thinks he will do well. His other leg has a slight fracture in the ankle and he feels like it’s small enough it will heal on its own not requiring surgery. He’s very young and has that on his side to recover nicely. He will spend the night and then head over to medical manor with foster mom Millie.
