Gimlet is here and we’re going gaga for him! This 7-year-old boy was tearfully surrendered by his previous owner due to a change in financial circumstance. You see, earlier this year, Gimlet sustained a back injury that left him unable to move his back legs. Immediately following the injury, Gimlet’s previous owner took him straight to the veterinary hospital. With back injuries, time is of the essence! Today, following months of acupuncture, laser therapy and water therapy; Gimlet has a very wobbly gait but he is walking!
Before coming into foster care, Gimlet lived with three other dogs and a cat. His foster family is optimistic that he will fit right into their pack following our usual slow introduction process. Rumor has it that the four resident dogs are anxiously waiting to meet him! Who wouldn’t be excited to meet a handsome guy like Gimlet?
Gimlet will continue his therapies and we’re sure that he will continue to make progress and regain strength. However, he may never regain full bladder control. Gimlet is hard of hearing and his foster mom tells us that she can walk around the room making noise for quite some time without waking him! We will be monitoring his hearing closely and we’ll have much more to report on this sweet boy soon.
In the meantime, Gimlet is settling into his foster home quite nicely. He’s certain to have some hefty medical bills in his future. To help Gimlet on his road to recovery, please click the donate button and become his sponsor. Any amount will certainly put some pep in his step!
