Dexter’s owner, Kentee Pasek from Ouray, Colorado, USA, spoke to Team Dogs about the ordeal, she said: “It was tragic. We did not know if he would make the 45-minute car ride to our vet in the next town, then we did not know if he would make it through the night.
“Once he did and had the surgery, it was a very slow recovery. Five surgeries in a year. Two sets of pins in the arm.
“It was a long road and each day I kept thinking ‘what did we get into?’ but in the end he was always so happy and positive and just loving the fact he lived.
