Chicago’s Trio Animal Foundation President Sue Naiden shared some of their dogs’ rags-to-riches stories. These photos show just how far a little help and a lot of love can go for a struggling animal.
“TAF received a call from our local shelter that a German shepherd puppy had been surrendered by her owner with deformities on her front arms. We named her Valentine and took her to several vets to get different opinions about what could possibly be done. The top orthopedic surgeon in the area performed two extensive surgeries on her arms. Valentine went through weeks of rehab and we were pleased that while her arms would never be perfectly straight, she was pain-free and had much more mobility.”
