The Story of Scoobie

This 2-year-old good boy is at one of our vet partners today for a TPLO surgery. Scoobie, or the Happy Hippo as he’s known in his foster home, needs surgery to correct his torn ACL, which is limiting the function of his back leg and causing him to limp. He’s a happy, playful guy, so this surgery is imperative for Scoob to live a truly fulfilling life.

Joining Ruff Start from a local impound in September of ’23, Scoobie has had many transitions in his short life and is ready to find a family of his own. He is the ultimate cuddle buddy and would love to be your new source of happiness! He’s a 50-pound lap dog with a big heart that also extends to other dogs, making him the perfect playmate and companion.
With today’s procedure, Scoobie will have more support in his knee and will be able to function more normally. It’s an intense surgery with a long road to recovery for a big dog, with 6-8 weeks of intense physical therapy.
Scoobie’s looking at an estimated vet bill of $1,850 for today’s procedure and follow-up care. Can you please contribute to Scoobie’s journey towards a healthier and happier future?
