Shadow continues to heal after surgery

Shadow recently had her right eye surgically removed due to an old chronic injury. Shadow is being fostered by Laura who provided the following update:

"Shadow continues to improve everyday. I created the patio in the photos in honor of her. I will be making some stepping stones to illustrate her story. She loves to lay in the mulch by the Lake Superior stones. She usually only chews on her own toys but I guess that little garden monster and turtle could be dog toys.

Shadow has done remarkably well through it all. The swelling is completely gone and the hair around the eye is starting to grow back. The cone however did not fair as well. Shadow would run full blast around the yard scooping up tennis balls and mulch into the cone. It was once white well……….? We both can not wait for it to come off.

Shadow will have her stitches out on May 16th and be ready for adoption. Her surgery was a success. Thanks again to all at Apache Animal Hospital for taking such good care of Shadow. And thank you to all who so generously donated your time and money.

Shadow is becoming a great dog. She does still need to find her forever home. So please keep your “eye” out for a new family for Shadow."

Thanks to everyone for your support of Shadow. Help us get the word out about this sweet girl. For all she has been through, she continues to love and trust. Open your heart, give her a chance, and she will be your shadow, in the bright times, and even in your darkest moments.

Shadow is a beautiful girl. I love these photos of her enjoying the patio, and the simple pleasure of chewing on a cement garden turtle. It's adorable. I love the black dogs and she is one of the prettiest I've seen. Someone will be very lucky to adopt her.
