Our little puppy trio, Puddy, Pancake and Leon, are doing very well and getting lots of love and outstanding medical care at Pet PT in Cherry Hill. Dr. Russell Howe-Smith and his staff are working hard to ensure that our little puppies have the best possible chance at living full, normal lives. They have a long, long way to go, but they could not be in better hands and we are grateful to Dr. Howe-Smith for taking on this long-term puppy project.
In case you missed their original story, these little puppies were brought in to our AHS Newark facility not long before Christmas when they were about 10 weeks old. The puppies have Swimmers Syndrome, and cannot walk or hold themselves up. In many cases with Swimmers, many puppies can make a full recovery when they begin treatment at around 3 weeks old. These puppies will be much tougher to rehabilitate, since their treatment only just began. They are the result of an irresponsible pet owner, and it is such a shame that they were not brought in sooner. At least they are getting the best treatment now, and though we’re unsure of what their futures hold, we are so glad that they will now have a chance at a future.
We’ve received these videos and photos, courtesy of Pet PT, showing some of the pups during their physical therapy treatments. We are so grateful to have our Res-Q Fund to enable us to get the puppy trio the help that they need, and as you can see, there is never a time when this fund is not needed.

Puddy, Pancake and Leon are not available for adoption at this time. They have a long, tough road ahead of them. We will keep you all updated on their progress here on our Facebook page, and on our website- www.ahscares.org
