Van Gogh - Update - May 12



If you remember, our boy Vinnie first met Trinity a couple of months ago when he first starting walking and feeling better. We wanted to know how Vinnie felt about other dogs after all he had been through, and what better dog to try him with than our friend Trinity. Their first meeting didn't go that well because Trinity seemed to be a little uncomfortable with being out of her comfort-zone. Vinnie sure was comfortable though, and we discovered that he absolutely loved other dogs! We had Vinnie and Trinity meet again and this time, Trinity was fine, but she just seemed a bit disinterested. It could be that she is very loyal to her little boyfriend at home, Rebel.

In case you don't remember Trinity's story, she is another dog that came to us in desperate need of help, and she got help and is alive today because of the generous and compassionate people that donate to our Res-Q Fund. Our Res-Q Fund enabled us to get Trinity the medical attention that she needed and we are so thankful to our supporters. Won't you please make a donation to our fund?

Trinity was brought to our Newark facility last year by a backyard breeder. He had no use for this four month old puppy because of her "deformities" and could not make any money off of her, so he needed to be rid of her. Poor little Trinity was just helpless when she first came in. One of her front legs grew into a tiny stump that was not usable, and did nothing but cause her pain. Her other front leg had a misshapen paw that resembled a lobster claw, and she could barely use it to walk. Trinity also had a multitude of other orthopedic problems as well but even with all this, she was the sweetest, most lovable puppy you ever met.

Read trinity's complete story!

Trinity transferred down to us at Popcorn Park where we began taking her to various specialists for her varied orthopedic issues. She needed to have her small stump of a leg removed and once she did, she began using her other leg much better. She went for several months of water therapy and now she gets around extremely well. She owes so much of her progress and recovery to her foster mom, our kennel supervisor Tiffany, who has been by Trinity's side through it all. Trinity has made herself at home and part of the family at Tiffany's house and while she is still under medical treatment for a variety of issues, she is loving life now.

Vinnie and Trinity have both been through so much yet when you watch them, they both look like normal, happy pups. Thank you all for your support for these two and for all of our animals. We couldn't help deserving animals such as Vinnie and Trinity if it weren't for people like you. Thank you, and stay tuned for more from the Invincible Vinnie!
