Meet Trooper!

Trooper has one amazing story. Abandoned, malnourished and suffering from a gunshot wound to the face he was found by a Deschutes County deputy who immediately knew that Trooper was a very special boy!  Following protocol, the deputy, Keith Slater, took Trooper to the Humane Society of Central Oregon where it was determined that he was likely also dealing with some injuries to his rear limbs. A visit with Dr. Parchman at Bend Veterinary Specialists revealed that he had not one, but two ruptured cruciate ligaments!  Dogs like Trooper don't come along often.  Forgiving and loving despite his tragic circumstances. So, Dr. Parchman agreed to donate most of the cost of two TTA surgeries and physical rehabilitation at Pawsitive Strides. We are happy to say that Trooper is  now leading a very happy, healthy and comfortable life with his new family - the very same Keith Slater who found him on that very fortuitous day!
