Heart­felt thanks as puppy re­cov­ers

Cockburn Gazette - - NEWS -

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.
