Meet Bobbi, He’s one of the Reasons Rosie Needs your Donations

Bobbi need your help

Bobbi need your help

Meet Bobbi. Our first introduction to Bobbi was last Thursday, January 14, 2010. The pound informed us that they had a really nice Black dog weighing about 25 - 35 lbs and he was limping - Could we take him?

Johanne T., C.A.A.C.Q. and Reverend Michael Johnson, ChristChurch, Beaconsfield left to rescue him from the pound. Father Johnson wanted to know what goes on during a rescue, this was his first exposure to it, and what an experience.

During the trip to Pierrefonds Animal Hospital, Reverend Johnson named the unknown Black dog, Bobbi.

Bobbi turned out to be a great Canadian mix weighing 60 lbs.

Bobbi had been found in a ditch (probably after being hit by a car) and after an exam and x-rays, it was determined that Bobbi had a serious fracture of his front leg. He needed surgery. During the x-rays and exam, this poor dog was in pain but not for one second did he show any aggression. His life was then rested in the hands of Rosie Animal Adoption. The choice was: Do we give him a 2nd chance or do we say goodbye to him?

Since he was such a nice dog, it was not hard to make this decision. He was picked up by a Rosie volunteer and brought to D.M.V. for surgery. Fortunately, the surgeon was there, and it was decided that he would have surgery on Friday.

The surgery went well, and a plate and 6 screws were inserted to stabilize the bone. A cast was put in place.

After his release from D.M.V., Bobbi made a visit to Pierrefonds Animal Hospital so Susan could photograph him. Bobbi was staying overnight at Pierrefonds so his foster home would be ready for him. Rosie’s veterinarian, Dr. Laurie Dunbar, Pierrefonds Animal Hospital, is photographed with Bobbi. Dr. Dunbar operates on Rosie dogs weekly!

Saving Bobbi has come at a high price to Rosie Animal Adoption. This is a dilemma that Rosie faces on a regular basis, but it is so hard to look into their eyes and tell them that we can’t save them.

Rosie’s Survivors Fund


Max was flown to Montreal to save his life and relieve his pain as he was very painful after being hit. Max was hit by a snowmobile in the North. There are no vets in the far North to treat a dog so the owners do what they can for the dogs. On arrival at our vets, they found that he had fractured bones in his foot. He was not neutered yet either. So Max was neutered and a cast was put on his leg which will remain from 4 to 6 weeks. Donations again have helped save Max as in the North he would not have received any medical care.
