A 10-week-old puppy was discovered in Bentleyville, Pennsylvania with a metal rod completely through his skull. The pup, who was found in early February, was taken to University Veterinary Specialists for treatment of his “extensive” injuries.
Today, the now six-month-old puppy is named Kai Ola Kai (survivor) and he has a new home with Dino LaSalvia and Julie LaSalvia. According to WTAE News, Kai Ola Kai is “thriving” with his new family.
Amazingly, despite the gruesome injuries that Kai Ola Kai suffered, he is living a normal, happy life – almost as if nothing ever happened. Veterinarians were even able to preserve the injured puppy’s eyesight – something which initially seemed impossible.
Enjoy your new, happy life Kai Ola Kai!
