Belle had the first op to plate and screw the break on the 13th July and apart from a week's freedom beginning of October she has been crated the whole time, for such a young dog she has coped so well and rarely made a fuss even when she sees the others playing. It has been a very long difficult 14 weeks but we are so close to total freedom for Belle button now...
Belle has been incredibly lucky, her owner wanted her pts but the vet persuaded him to hand her over and contacted Lisa of greyhound gap have not only paid for her leg to be plated but also paid to have it removed on the advice of our vet, so whilst she has had a rotten few months she is a very very lucky little dog.
Tom our vet was also very pleased with Twiz on the reduced medication doesn't understand
how it's having such a major effect given her x rays but keep on as is for 3
months and then review!.
A few Taylor hound photo's, in order of seniority in the pack
Alfie Bear is a greyhound suluki x who lost a leg and had his head fractured in 3 places resulting in the loss of an eye, Alfie is now our pack leader! Alf is about 5 years old now
Gangley is 7kg and a pure whippet just very very small but with big attitude! Gangley is 9
Mojo is coming up for 10 and is a greyhound whippet cross who lost half his tail at the hands of humans.
Elmo arrived in January and is about 2 now a whippet cross but crossed with what we have no idea LOL.
Orin is a greyhound yup we actually have a greyhound LOL, usually have 4 or 5 but now we keep getting sent lurchers, Orin is 3
We seem to be sent dogs that have suffered abuse at the hands of humans and how we've ended up with all these lurchers instead of greyhounds is beyond me but we love them all no matter what shape or size after all they all fall into the category of sight hounds, okay maybe Twiz is pushing it a bit LOL.
