About a week ago, Barry had surgery to put a plate in his shoulder and now he’s recovering at home with his foster mom.
“He should now make a full recovery and will be a normal dog,” Semple said. “It’s going to take a while to heal but, once he’s back to full strength, we’ll be able to find him a wonderful new home.”
The initial vet fees were covered by donations from local supporters. And Semple — who paid for Barry’s $2,085 operation herself — is trying to raise funds to cover the remaining costs.
“He has a long road to recovery, but at least now Barry feels great. He is in a comfy home, will have all his needs met and has many eyes watching over him,” she said.
“He should now be able to live a normal life and, long-term, will be able to run and play without a limp.”
