Champ, the once intentionally starved dog from Laurens, South Carolina, might be considered the “luckiest” dog in the world. Comfortably settled in his foster home in Maryland, the gifts continue to flood in.
Everyday is a new day for Champ. Going for walks and sniffing along the way with a family who loves him; is it any wonder he feels like the “luckiest” dog in the world?
Now the trips to the veterinarian don’t require Champ to stay overnight anymore. The prods and the pokes of needles are nearly finished. His progress continues to be amazing, and everyone at the office loves him. Champ is the “luckiest” dog in the world.
CHAMP VET UPDATE:
“Do you see that number???!!!!
Weight 73 lbs.
Pcv is at 37
Hemoglobin is normal
We are cutting back on his iron supplement and starting to mix in puppy food to get some more weight on him. Skin test won’t come back for 21 days. Didn’t appear to have mites. Suspects the hair loss is a secondary reaction to malnutrition. He had an ear infection and is on meds for that. Overall, he’s on the right path. He goes back in 2 weeks for a recheck. Everyone LOVED him!”
Many thanks from Champ to Rescue Dogs Rock NYC for making this dog’s journey possible.
Another dog that made a remarkable recovery:
In the news yesterday: Officials believe that moose drowned because of people crowding to take photos. More here.
