Congratulations, Lucca! This handsome almost 2-year-old Terrier mix boy just graduated from rehab at the SAHS! As you can see, he’s obviously very proud of himself!
Lucca was transferred from ACS in April with an injured back leg. While in our care, he received surgery to correct a ruptured ligament in his knee (on his left hind leg) similar to an ACL in people. During his recovery, his body rejected the hardware left in his leg and received a second surgery to remove it. This special boy has undergone intense rehabilitation to regain full function of the limb. From short walks and stretches to cold laser and underwater treadmill therapy, Lucca did it all! He was amazing every step of the way (with the help of peanut butter, of course)!
Now that he has officially graduated from rehab, he’s now ready to find his forever home! His new family should note that he is still in his final stages of healing and should be re-introduced to full activity at a slow rate. He will need to continue short leash walks and additional exercises to help him get stronger each day.
He has totally stolen our hearts, and we’re sure he’ll steal yours too! He’s a happy boy ready to be your new best friend. He’s got the sweetest and most friendly personality.
