Pancho is a 3 year old Dachshund-Chihuahua mix who was adopted from the LaPorte Animal Shelter by the Cedillo family. He recently began experiencing pain in his lower back which resulted in his not being able to walk or even hold himself up for any length of time. When Pancho’s family vet suggested a visit to the neurologist and an MRI, his family reached out to Barrio Dogs for financial assistance with this very costly testing.
It was quickly determined that Pancho had a ruptured disc and needed immediate surgery to have any chance at living a normal, pain-free life. Thanks to the generous support of our donors, we were able to sponsor Pancho’s surgery and post-operative care.
Today, Pancho is back home with his loving family, fully mobile and pain free!
