Rocky and Michele Update

As you can see, rocky had to have his head shaved in two different place. He is on antibiotics and pain meds. Michele said that he is very clingy.
Michele had to go to the doctor too. He is concerned about the tendon in her finger that got the brunt of the attack. She has to go back today and again during the week for a few doctor visits. Her arm has to be elevated. We are hoping that she does not need surgery on the finger. The attack was reported to Animal Care and Control by the doctor and her neighbor is getting rid of the pit that attacked. The other pit had seizures after the attack and is doing better. The attacking pit bull had been found on the street several weeks ago. I guess they now know why the dog was dumped. Please Be Careful With Strange Dogs!!!

    How awful… for Rocky and Michele…. Rocky will be clingy for awhile…don’t blame him. We had an attack in our front yard while on a lead last year. Our scotty gal had head wounds also. Frightening and horrible… hope Michele won’t need surgery. Keep us posted~~~and we want ‘all’ good news from now on…

      When Michele went to the doctor, he called her Crash. He remembered her from her last visit with a broken wrist. He did not notice her knees and elbows. Rocky is doing better today. M8ichele went for a follow up and the doctor wants to see her again tomorrow.

      Thanks for your prayers and good wishes. Rocky seems to be okay around other animals today.

      It was very traumatic for all, including me. Rocky is such a sweet boy. He doesn’t desire to be attacked. His mom was trying to keep him from getting hurt.

    Rocky and Michele are very lucky it was not worst. Hope everything heals completely without surgery.

      Thank you Bentley. Michele is worried that she won’t be able to write on the board at school tomorrow. Her arm is in a sling and she had her dominant hand hurt.

    How frightening! We are so glad it wasn’t worse and very sad for the pit that attacked. Praying for a speedy recovery for Rocky & Michelle!

      The pit was picked up as a stray and the people thought that he would be a good companion for their other pit. Obviously it was not the right choice.Thanks for your prayers.

    You hate to say back things about any breed. but it seems that pitties do have a bad reputation for a reason.
