    I am popping in with some good news for today, Reese can walk if I stand him up on all fours :) He can not get up on his back legs on his own but we are making/seeing progress. He can not stand up and pee instead of just laying there he he..poor pup. Thank you all for checking in on him he would gladly kiss all of you if he could :) Have a wonderful night and I will be back with more updates.

    Good to hear Amber, He's definetly got the will to live, We're pulling and praying for him. Got a feeling you are going to end up with one very spoiled rotten puppy, but worth it!!!!

    The muscles in his legs may be weak also from lack of use so you may be better keeping the towel around his mid section to keep his balance as you would not want him to sprain or break a leg .Especially on any steps .It took my poor Hunter almost 4 monthes to get all the strength back in his legs and I had to watch him close because he kept trying to run and his balance was not good .I had to give him dog vitamins and glucosium to help with his joints .

    Hello again,he is now able to get up on his own :claphands: once again. I received an email from a group that gives financial aide to rescues/individuals who have border collies, I filed awhile back to see if they would help me pay for the hydro-therapy when he was actually getting better the first time and never heard back until today. They have to take a poll and then she will let me know if I am approved,praying they approve me so I can take him for 12 sessions as I think that will help his back legs become stronger. I am getting very attached but our son has allergies and we were told do not add anymore dogs lol..we have a boxer and french bulldog but we shall see,will be up to the husband. Thank you all once again for your continued prayers,will be back soon. Amber

    Oh that's some good news for sure and hope you get approved to get some funds to help Reese get some therapy. Will be neat to see a picture of him getting better! If you can't keep him I hope he finds a wonderful caring home w/ someone who cares as much as you do!

    Amber,

    I just read the whole thread. That is great! Sounds like Reese is finally on his(? - it is a boy dog, isn't it?) way to becoming a healthy and happy little dog!

    It will probably take a while for Reese to regain all the strength that should have been there, but that shouldn't take long now that Reese seems to be in a good recovery mode and has a caring provider.

    Gordy
