Meet Bogie

March 4, 2016 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

Bogie is a very special three-year-old Golden Retriever. He was diagnosed with (suspected) fibrocartilaginous embolism (FCE) on an MRI of his lumbar spine and spent four months at Iowa State University for medical observation and rehabilitation therapy. The condition left him with severely weakened hind legs and the inability to empty his own bladder, so his original owner could no longer care for him. ISU reached out to GRRIN for help and Bogie entered foster care in April of 2015. The alternative was euthanasia as no other rescue would take him. GRRIN volunteers have worked tirelessly to care for Bogie and try to find him a permanent adoptive family. He has no idea that he’s challenged and he has adapted to the many changes in this life with a typical Golden smile. Bogie is incredibly intelligent and responds well to training; he would be the perfect therapy dog, perhaps for those facing similar challenges.

Meet Bogie at Five Elements Veterinary Alternatives on Friday, March 4th from 9-11am. Event details and map below.
