Meet Bree

This is Bree.

She's a one year old [on Dec 1st!] German Shep/Australian Shep mix I adopted from a rescue in Orlando.

In October she tore her ACL and had to have surgery. One of my co-workers told me that was a waste of money, spending that much for surgery for a young dog. That if it was his dog, he'd have it put down and get another. I told him he was horrible... Bree is a member of the family! Of course I'd pay for the surgery! And yes, it was definitely worth it. She is healing really really well and should be back to full activity in four weeks. They originally said she might be out of commission for up to 6 months, but at her x-ray check up yesterday they said she's healing rapidly ahead of schedule! She's always been such an over-achiever! She'll have close to 100% functionality in her leg!

Bree has the sweetest personality ever. She just loves to be petted and cuddled and is so trusting and happy to see you and loves the company of people. And she is SO FLUFFY. I love the Aussie fluff!

Bree is my only other pet besides my Bettas.

Bree is a beautiful dog. I would have done exactly the same thing as you did with the surgery.

Aw she is wonderful! If anything, young dogs heal faster than an old dog. You did the right thing, nobody argues with that. Some people are just ignorant. She looks soft :) She must have the energy of the aussie? She looks very alert.

I wonder how your co-worker would feel if the insurance compamy rejected paying for life saving surgery. Then said that the Co-worker was too new to the place.

She definitely has the energy of an Aussie! It was really hard trying to get her to be calm in the weeks after the surgery. She wasn't allowed to put any weight on her leg at all so she couldn't run/play. I had to use a sling when taking her out so she wouldn't walk on that leg. There was a LOT of after care following the surgery, but she is worth it!

Aww, Bree's adorable! My pup just had his ACL (and a partially ruptured medial miniscus) repaired a couple days ago - it's amazing how well they recover!
