Facts About Me
I’m from Kentucky!
Pee Wee was born about June 13, 2012 and weighs 6.8 lbs. He is adorable and oh so sweet! He came to us from Kentucky by way of one hour at a time drivers all lined up on a schedule to bring this tiny guy to the safety of New York. Pee Wee almost didn’t make it out of the high kill shelter because the Kentucky vet found him to have bilateral grade 4 luxating patellas. We had Dr. Nachbar exam him after he was here for a bit and he found them to be grade 3 and grade 4. The Kentucky vet felt this was a painful condition and recommended carprofen, joint supplements and surgery. His foster mom didn’t feel he was in pain and did stop the carprofen and Dr. Nachbar felt there was no crepitus and that he was not in pain and didn’t recommend surgery as he’s done well in life this long and has adjusted to his disability. He also said surgery could make his knees ‘somewhat’ better more so for the grade 3 on the left. He mentioned a osteometry of the femur on the grade 4 on the right all this costing in the range of $2,600.00. But, again he felt keeping his weight in check and living a non-athletic life style would be the best option/outcome for little Pee Wee. So, we are throwing all this out there for a potential new parent’s information.
