Bo's Story

In March, Bo was seen staggering along the side of a road and taken to the St. Martin Shelter in Gilroy. The next day, Bo couldn't use his legs. He was diagnosed with botulism poisioning and was treated with antibotics and pain meds. Since then, he has slowly been making progress with regaining the use of his legs. The staff at the shelter called Bo their miracle dog and so he is. When he first came to CIW he was still pretty shaky on his legs but he was soon moving easily around the yard and running slowly. Within the week, he was walking up and down the block in front of his foster home. He has been playing with the other dogs and with a ball. He has begun to climb up and down the stairs into and out of the house and to come in through the dog door. He has the sweetest disposition although his feet are still sensitive to touch.
