evening, they were able to remove Bobbi's chest tube. He will remain in the
ICU overnight and if all goes well, he will move to the soft tissue recovery
floor in the morning.
They were able to remove all the bone fragments and repair the gums and lip.
He did lose all his incisors on the top and bottom, but they were able to
salvage his canines. Bobbi is a staff favorite and is is thriving on all
the hugs and kisses he gets from them. One of the nurses even brought him
his first toy. He doesn't seem to know what to do with it and just lays

Bobbi is a boxer boy estimated to be around 3-5 years of age. He
was found as a stray and brought to the city shelter. Bobbi is in very

Bobbi is in terrible pain and he can barely walk. He has wounds all
over his body and legs. Bobbi has a painful abdomen, is lethargic, and
bleeding from the nose and mouth. Once we lifted up his upper lip, we

ultrasound, dental consultant, and any other care that is needed . Out best
guess so far is that he suffered some kind of trauma. Please keep him
in your thoughts that he will pull through this. He is the sweetest
boy. Even with the amount of pain he is in, Bobbi let us handle him
and even gave a little nub wag. We will do whatever is needed to help
him pull through, but we desperately need your help. Any donations are
We will post updates as we find out more about Bobbi!
