Saving Caddy The Greyhound
GPA Northwest from Portland

Caddy, a gentle 3-1/2 year old retired racing Greyhound, suffered an injury to his right rear leg during a race in Jacksonville, Florida. His injury was never treated until he came to GPA Northwest here in Portland. He was in pain and could not walk on his damaged leg.

With the expertise of Dr. Ost, Caddy first underwent extensive surgery to try to save his leg. Despite amazing surgical work, unfortunately, the bone was too damaged and had started to deteriorate. They had no other option but to amputate the leg. So, on Nov. 19th Caddy had his back leg removed. Within hours he was up and hopping around, hardly noticing that he was on three legs. Without the pain of the injured leg, Caddy was able to get around nearly as fast as the four legged dogs in his foster home. His great personality made him a great patient and the surgery was so well done that he healed within two weeks.

Then early in April, an amazing family fell head-over-heals in love with Caddy and decided to take him into their home and into their hearts where he will remain forever. Currently, Caddy is adjusting to his new life quite nicely. His new family built him a special ramp so he has easier access to the back yard from the deck. There you can see Caddy playing and romping like any four-legged dog.

He has settled into his new routine at record speed. Caddy now knows when it's time for the girls in his new family to arrive home from school because then he knows he will get a walk to the park. He is spoiled with love, devotion and a safe place for him to spend the rest of his years, comfortable and happy thanks to the great care from the VCA Southeast Portland Animal Hospital surgical staff and Dr. Ost.

GPA Northwest finds homes for retired racing Greyhounds and VCA Southeast Portland Animal Hospital is one of our best resources for emergency and surgical care. We can always count on them when our dogs need help.
