I regret to inform that after a long period of waiting and an incredibly hard decision, Lucky was taken to the Veterinarian to be put down. Lucky needed to regain enough muscle tissue in his hind legs in order to operate surgically. His condition came to a plateau where he was not making improvements with the physical therapy. He had lost all muscle mass in his hind legs and stopped using them all together. In addition to loss of muscle mass, Lucky had on-going sores due to dragging his body around that were not healing and continuing to get larger and infected. Lucky was in severe pain and it had become incredibly obvious that his quality of life had deteriorated greatly. We felt it was time for lucky to no longer suffer. This has been an emotional roller coaster for all of us and we'd like to thank all of you for your donations, support and prayers for lucky. In the short time Lucky was with us, he has touched literally thousands of lives and brought a lot of people together. He was truly a blessing. God Bless.
