Elvis: Thrown from a car sustaining life-threatening injuries

Elvis: Thrown from a car sustaining life-threatening injuries

 

Elvis was thrown from a silver Mustang in Eastern Kentucky. Eyewitnesses saw the entire abuse and rushed to help him. The Good Samaritan took him home to see if he would recover. He did not.

The Arrow Fund, alerted 4 days after the incident, rushed in to help save Elvis. He was unable to use his back legs. The rescue knew he needed to be transported to a more advanced testing facility where a Neurologist would be on staff. The Arrow Fund immediately flew Elvis to a specialist facility.

The impact from being thrown caused a severe fracture to T9 and fractured his clavicle. The neurosurgeons felt that surgery was not the best course of action. The rescue is now past the surgical marker and waiting to see if he regains movement. Sometimes the damage is great and with time movement comes back - other times not. Because of the clavicle break Elvis has been reluctant to move, which is understandable. Once the clavicle starts to heal, he will be able to pull himself around and be more mobile. Elvis loves to be hugged on and gives lots of kisses! Elvis is a complete love!

Right now, the rescue is patiently waiting for Elvis to heal and show signs of the significance of his injuries. The Arrow Fund and Elvis need your help today. With every purchase, you can help save Elvis and give him the life he deserves. 


UPDATE: Elvis was thrown from a silver mustang in Inez , Kentucky at the beginning of October . He has been hospitalized and still is at VCA Advanced Veterinary Care Center in Fishers , Indiana . The damage was to his thoracic region - most damage was to T9 and he had a broken clavicle . These injuries were from impact from being thrown !


UPDATE 12-30-16 : Elvis was paralyzed after being thrown from vehicle, but after literally months of intensive care Elvis gets to run (in his own special way) and play with other dogs! He had a spinal injury that made him unable to use his back legs. He also had a broken scapula. Once in Louisville we realized we needed a Neurosurgeon - so we quickly whisked him off to VCA Hospital in Fishers , Indiana. Elvis spent more than 3 months there . His Neurosurgeon quickly decided that this would be a very difficult case . Elvis was kept completely immobile for 2 months then a very aggressive daily physical therapy plan was put into place .

Elvis will never walk like other dogs but he does love life and lives life to the fullest! The movement that Elvis has in his back legs is called spinal walking . A very basic explanation is that his back legs move - but the brain is not sending that signal . But Elvis certainly makes this work to his advantage! TAF does have a cart for Elvis and he is slowly getting used to it . Elvis is still undergoing some physical therapy but should be available for adoption in the near future ! Please continue supporting Elvis and TAF. You can donate here or purchase on of his shirts, tote bags, hoodies or bracelet below. I can't think of a more deserving boy and a nonprofit! Thank you so much!
