Welcome to Star Paws Rescue!
A Star Paws Miracle Story
Mothers Day 2013, Victoria Burrows got a Neglected Owner throw away dog named LEO. He was horribly matted & in pain. Fur had to be cut away from his eyes so he could see. His nails were growing into his foot pads. Flea and Tic infestation was the worst the vet had ever seen.
Leo’s video was posted on VICTORIA BURROWS STAR PAWS RESCUE Facebook page asking for a foster & donations. Karen Sutherlin was looking at FB & she saw LEO’s video. Without Hesitation, Karen wrote: We will take him!!
Within 24hrs and after having a full body shave, Leo went to meet Brett & Karen. They knew he was a special boy that needed special attention. Within hours Brett & Karen realized that Leo was having problems urinating and the urine was full of blood!
Brett quickly took Leo to the emergency vet . The Vet did an X-Ray and could not believe what they discovered. Leo, severely mal-nourished had a stone in his bladder the size of a baked potato. This stone was occupying 95% of his bladder. He needed emergency surgery to remove the stone.
Brett and Karen gladly agreed to pay for ALL medical care and just wanted Leo to get well and come to his new forever home……Theirs !!!
Leo has blossomed so much under the love and care he gets from being with this family. They are Star Paws Rescue Angels.
Stay tuned for updates.
