Meet Henry the Lemon Head English Pointer...

He’s just a youngster and got himself into a pretty bad pickle with some normal Sporting Breed antics - normal any ole dog antics for that matter. After all who hasn’t let their pup fly their nose out for some famous “windies”?

We preach over and over the message about bringing your beloved pet inside the cab, but the partner message “don’t forget to restrain them” is often overlooked. 

Raise your hand if you’ve ever let your best dog pal hang their head out the window or ride just chillin on the back seat.  Most all of us have at some point. Many of us do regularly without any thought to a looming catastrophe. 

Henry’s joyride however ended in tragedy.  Yep ~ he got so excited he lept right out the 6inch opening of his SUVs window and met the most unfriendly ground below with so much force he has suffered traumatic injuries. His injuries included a spiral open femur fracture.

TSBR’s Animal Welfare team quickly mobilized and Henry was medically transferred to our specialty partners at Summerfields Animal Hospital. Henry was stabilized and received extensive pain management.  He is such a sweet, sweet young boy but was truly hurting. 

Henry underwent emergency surgery and unfortunately his leg was beyond repair and had to be amputated. He is currently hospitalized recovering. We anticipate Henry will make a full recovery as a Tripod and live an active, adventurous life despite this setback. 

Help us ensure Henry has safe joyrides in his future and can grow up to be a beautiful fully functional Pointer. 

Henry’s orthopedic surgery, ICU hospitalization, and post operative care is estimated at $4,000.00
