Lucky resting and relaxing after her surgery.
"Lucky originally became homeless after her elderly owner was admitted into a nursing home. She was then passed thru another home or two before she came to Northeast Boston Terrier Rescue. None of this seemed to alter her wonderful personality. She soon became part of one of our foster homes and earned the love of all who met her. She made herself right at home and greeted everyone with enthusiasm. She is a very special girl who soon got the nickname, The Princess. She most definitely was a Royal in her former life.
After a few weeks at her foster home she began to limp. After a visit with the vet it was discovered she had 2 grade 4 luxating patellas.( bad knees) A second opinion said exactly the same. The Vet said she had been living in constant pain most of her life and she would only get worse as time went on. It was decided that surgery was needed. With the help of other volunteers she was transferred to Massachusetts to be closer to a vet who did a wonderful job. A week later she was back to her foster home for rest and rehab. A month later she was lounging in the sun in her new forever home. She now lives in Woodstock New York with a retired couple who treats her like the Princess she is.
With the help of other volunteers she was transferred to Massachusetts to be closer to a vet who did a wonderful job. Once again NEBTR is indebted to the help of Vicki Kennedy of Kennedy Bostons and her vet, Dr. Vinny, for helping us help Lucky."-- Elly Monfett
