SAVING EROL
A follow up on Erol's road to recovery.......

Erol was rescued from a SC shelter at the end of Oct.
We are pretty sure he was used as a bait dog for dog fighting.
He is HW positive and had ehrlichia and now, his most recent battle
has been recovering from Coonhound Paralysis.
Erol lost the use of his legs just before Christmas.
He spent a week in the doggy hospital and has since been in the care
of his wonderful foster mom, Jean.

These are some new pics of Erol taken over the last week.
The picture at the top shows Erol laying on his back,
looking like a dog that is starting to enjoy life.



This is Erol talking with Jean, his foster mom


This is Erol keeping a close eye on this suspicious looking character

TODAY
Erol was able to get up in a sitting position all on his own!
and.......

with a little help from his friends,
Erol was able to stand and take a few steps!!

Way to go Erol!!
A huge thanks to Jean and Mark for the
love and kindness they are giving to Erol.
I know its a lot of work to care for a paralyzed dog.
You can see that he is in good hands
and continues to make progress
slowly but surely.
