Papillo is a special dog originally from Nosara, Costa Rica. About a month ago he was hit by a car. When our partners at Nosara Animal Care were alerted to his condition, they immediately set to work to provide him the care that he needed. After failed acupuncture treatments in San Jose, Northwest Veterinary Specialists in Portland, Oregon kindly offered their help.
This past month, Papillo was flown to Portland to have an MRI along with the anticipation for surgery. However, after tests and examinations, it was discovered that his spinal cord had been severed rendering him unfit for surgery. Nevertheless, Papillo has been outfitted with a set of wheels that will now aid his movement and overall well being.
To complete his road to recovery, Papillo is now in need of a loving new home that can provide him the attention and care that he deserves. Since is he currently in Portland, the ideal home is within the state of Oregon to avoid further travel and stress.
