Heartfelt thanks as puppy recovers
A RED heeler pup that underwent surgery thanks to a groundswell of community support is on the mend.
Quincy had surgery to correct two congenital heart conditions at Osborne Park’s Perth Veterinary Specialists in mid-October.
Owner Dean Huxley said she was recovering well.
“She was on bed rest for two weeks but is now starting puppy classes,” he said.
“We were a bit anxious before the surgery but it all went really well.
“You could tell she was in a bit of pain but she’s got her spark back.”
Mr Huxley, manager at Bibra Lake’s Native Arc, and partner Georgia Rowley adopted the puppy after it was surrendered to the animal hospital where Ms Rowley works.
Mr Huxley thanked the community, which raised enough money to get the three-month old the treatment it needed. “It all happened really quickly,” he said. “We weren’t looking for a dog and all of a sudden we had two. Then for people to raise $10,000 via a GoFundMe page, it was amazing.
“We want to thank all the supporters for everything.”
Mr Huxley said a Meet Quincy day will be held soon.
