Gertrude showed up as a stray at a shelter, with a wobbly front leg, possibly due to an old, untreated injury–no fun for a 3 year old GSP who just wants to romp! An MRI showed that she had a tendon that needed to be “released,” at a cost of $4,000. Thanks to our donors, the surgery was completed successfully. Gertie’s biggest problem then was that the halo prevented her from carrying rolls of toilet paper around, her favorite indoor sport. Her foster family, a couple with extensive GSP experience, fell in love with her and adopted her. Now she will be able to enjoy many years of running and jumping, pain free.
