You might remember Ivy: she’s the dog we posted about a little over a month ago. (To see the full original story, click here.) She had been sadistically chased down a street by a man brandishing a 2 x 4 after escaping her hellish life with her neck sliced open from a cord being embedded in it. We are so pleased to announce that in addition to making a full recovery, this girl has now landed herself a dream family!
Here is the wonderful recap and update from the folks at Trio Animal Foundation in Chicago:
IF BEING CHASED BY A MAN WITH A 2X4 WASN’T ENOUGH, IVY’S THROAT WAS SLICED FROM AN EMBEDDED COLLAR/ELECTRICAL CORD GROWING INTO HER SKIN…
At just 8 months old, Ivy had suffered more than any dog should. Found on the south side of Chicago, she became another statistic in a long line of abuse cases from that area.
Ivy was hospitalized at the ER Vet and then was transferred to one of our primary vets for hospitalization for a week. It was there that Ivy went in for surgery to have the dead and rotting tissue cut away from her neck.
We are so happy to announce that Ivy has gone to make a full recovery and has found her forever home!
Ivy’s parents’ lost their beloved dog after 14 years of loving him. When they saw Ivy’s story on Facebook, they knew that she was the one that would make their family whole again. It is truly a happily ever after.
