Harry Lyme VanOccupanther

Mixed (unknown)

We adopted Harry from a rescue two years ago. We do not know his age or breed. When we adopted him, we were told that he had tested positive for Lyme disease, and just when he was finally settling in, he started to show signs of real lameness. At first the vet thought it was Lyme acting up, but soon Harry could not walk at all. We rushed him to the hospital, where they performed emergency surgery for degenerative spine disease. He was standing up in just two days, and after months of crate rest and more months of physical therapy, he’s now walking almost two miles a day, playing fetch (his favorite!) and traveling everywhere with us. He always seems to need to round us all up and get us to sit in the same room with him, and he loves to score a belly rub, play tug, and go out in cold weather. He hates thunderstorms but loves it when it snows. He has worked very hard on his skills, and now he walks nicely on a leash, even in the city, and is no longer afraid of other dogs. We love Harry so much and can’t imagine life without him.

Handsome Harry! He is absolutely gorgeous & almost the same coloring as my Maisie. She even has a tongue like Harry. LOL! My Maisie has Border Collie in her & likes to herd us too! Thank you for giving Harry the "good life" & all that tender loving care from his surgeries. Hugs & kisses from Maisie & I!
