Thank you for all you did for Knaeda. While we all knew her to be the unsocial rottweiler that she was, Aquadog was her place to be! After her two ACL surgeries, we found Aquadog and while she did things on her terms, “

Pierce was pulled off death row at a high kill shelter in Georgia a year and a half ago by Kodi's Club Rottweiler Rescue. He was given basic veterinary care and then endured two months of heartworm treatment as he was positive for heartworms. We adopted him from Kodi's Club and immediately noticed a slight limp on his right front leg and a misshapen left rear hock. He loved to run and chase balls in the yard and play with his sister- another Kodi's Clubber from Georgia. Last spring we noticed the limp getting worse and he was favoring his left rear leg- sometimes not even putting weight on it. We took him for X-Rays and a consultation with Dr. David Puerto at CARES in Langhorn PA. We learned he has elbow dysplasia in both front legs, osteochondrosis dissicans in the left rear hock, and arthritis. As Dr. Kris pointed out "He is a hot mess". The good news is that his hips are good. Surgery was recommended.
