Teddy the Chow Chow Goes Home!

After More Than One Year in a Foster Home, Teddy Finally Found his Furever Family!

Every so often, you hear how it takes a village to help a pet in need. Teddy’s story is just one of those.

Teddy came to AHS in March of 2016 with severe injuries after being hit by a car. The 3-year-old Chow was unable to move and had a severely broken left leg and a luxated right hip. He required several surgeries in AHS’ Second Chance Animal Trauma Hospital™, yet his injuries ended up requiring a one-of-a-kind specialist and that is when Dr. Lirtzman of Arizona Canine Orthopedics & Sports Medicine at Animal Specialty Group of Scottsdale stepped in to help.

As Teddy recovered from his surgeries, he battled ear infections, allergies and dental procedures, all the while displaying the quirky behaviors that Chow Chows are known for. Yet, through it all he had the most kind, loving and devoted foster family and for that we are beyond grateful.

Teddy’s road to recovery has been long – more than 500 days to be exact – but we so happy to share that he has finally found his forever family!

Words can’t adequately express our gratitude to the Galvin family, Dr. Lirtzman and our medical team for all they have done for Teddy, and to Teddy’s new mom for taking on his care and for loving him just as we have.
