Chase was rescued on 11 August 2023, a week after we got his friend Nugget. Both of them are suspected victims of wild boar attacked – Nugget got his tail chewed off while Chase got bitten on his neck. No one realized Chase was injured because we were focusing on Nugget whose wound was more visual. Hence by the time the wound on Chase’s neck was seen, the maggot already pushed their way deep into his tissues. His reconstructive surgery was pretty intensive and the post ops bandaging and daily cleaning and application of medication was painstakingly tedious. But all is worth it. His heartworm disease was also resolved after completing the treatment on 2nd Decemeber 2023.
Chase is an easy dog to handle in terms of feeds and baths. As for walks, he likes to walk fast and is sometimes stubborn, insisting on his way. But with each day of rehabilitation, he has gotten him better in walks.
