It’s (finally) time to announce the winner of the July Birthday Bowser Club! (Sorry…I got behind this month!) The winner is super cute Neuro, whose gotcha day was July 7. Neuro’s mom says,
This little sweetie had a hard start. He had been bitten by another dog and his owners dumped him at the shelter instead of seeking veterinary care for him. He had some deep puncture wounds in his skull, and as a result, suffered some brain damage. The shelter got his wounds treated, but were having a hard time finding a loving home for a dog dubbed “Neuro” due to his disability. They advertised him on the city’s local On Demand channel, and I fell in love. My husband and I were in the process of buying our first home, so we couldn’t adopt him just yet. I showed my dad the On Demand video over the 4th of July weekend, and when the shelter opened back up the next week, my dad went down and adopted him to make sure my husband and I would end up with him, and gave him to us as our housewarming present. I couldn’t think of a better way to make a house a home than to add a new family member! His unfortunate nickname stuck, and three years later, Neuro is a favorite among our family, and my husband and I always encourage others to adopt special needs pets!
Congratulations to Neuro, who wins a bag of dog toys and goodies, and to all our July birthday/gotcha day dogs included in our July video below!
