An Update to A Minnie Hochwarter Fund Success Story!
My name is Harmony and I am one year old! If you don’t know me, my story is listed below under “A Minnie Hochwarter Success Story”. It has been a very busy year for me, but now:
*I run & play & run & play & run & play, etc.
*My legs are strong &
*My heart beats strongly & is filled with love & appreciation for all who made my first birthday possible (the cardiologist said that without surgery I wouldn’t be here to celebrate).
I am a very happy puppy despite all the trauma of my first year. I want to thank everyone who has helped & loved me along the way:
*P.A.W.S. of Tinley Park for taking me in
*My family: my foster Mom (Sue, who took me to every appointment, medical procedure, treatment & surgery) & Dad
*Grandma and Grandpa (they love to spoil me)
*My siblings (they taught me how to be a dog)
*& finally, all the doctors who put this “Humpty Dumpty” back together
I am a very lucky puppy! THANK YOU, EVERYONE!
A Minnie Hochwarter Fund Success Story!
In March, 2016, P.A.W.S. of Tinley Park responded to a plea from another shelter to take a puppy that could not walk. They were not financially able to seek the treatment she might need to live a normal life. Harmony was just 6 weeks old & could barely get around. Her back legs would drag behind her as she inched herself along. It was heartbreaking to watch her. Click here to read the rest of Harmony’s success story!
