The “low-rider” border collie known as Wobbles captured the hearts of the community with her need for extensive surgery.
The $1,650 required to operate to save her leg was raised and the surgery was completed Tuesday afternoon atat Dewdney Animal Hospital.
Wobbles is doing well after her surgery, said Dewdney’s Dr. Adrian Walton.
“Our little puppy is doing great,” he noted, after the five-hour surgery.
The complex leg surgery was more demanding than expected due to the dog’s “stubby little” legs.
Wobbles is not walking like a pro yet, but just hours after her procedure, Walton said she was mobile.
“I want to thank our community for being animal lovers,” he added.
It was the support of the community that provided the funds to make the surgery possible.
Wobbles had been hit by a car, and the spiral fracture of her left front leg would have led to amputation without the donations.
To thank the community, Walton posted a video about Wobbles on the animal hospital’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/dewdneyvet.
Wobbles was surrendered to the Maple Ridge SPCA and following about a month of recovery, she will be looking for her forever home.
