Update on Boca - Abused Pug's Spirit is Not Broken

Boca's Jaw is Broken
in Multiple Locations

Aug. 29 - An update on Boca's surgery:

Thank everyone that has donated so far to Boca and her surgeries. Boca went to surgery yesterday (Friday) and was in surgery for a little over five hours. Dr G told us that this was one of the more difficult surgeries he had ever done. The good news is that the surgery for the most part was a huge success. Her jaw is now stable and her tongue has retracted back into her mouth. So the bottom line is today Boca is resting comfortably and we hope will regain more use of her tongue. Stay tuned for updates as they become available.

Here is the original post from last week about Boca:

This spirited little girl is Boca, a victim of abuse. Luckily, someone saved her from the terrible situation she was in and called us. When our volunteer picked Boca up, her little puggy tail wagged a thank you and she snuggled up and went to sleep, safe in the arms of rescuers at last.

Our veterinarian says Boca has been kicked, and her jaw is broken in at least two places. Boca is undergoing emergency surgery Friday to repair the damage, and the doctors say it may take more than one surgery to heal her injuries. Boca is having a very difficult time eating and drinking water, so we want to help her as quickly as possible.

Can you help us with her care? We desperately need funds for her specialized surgery and continued care. Please click on the donation button on our Web site and note that it is a donation especially for Boca. We cannot do this without you! Thank You!

oh my, Boca, I will be thinking of you and holding up hope that you will get through your surgeries. Poor little girl...I just don't get it...I really don't. WHEN are our lawmakers going to create harsher penalties and SUSTAIN those penalties on these offenders of our dearest loyal friends?


Bless you precious little Boca. All of the DWB community's thoughts and prayers are with you.

Mommy agrees exactly with what Tamara said.

God Bless....Mona

That is one of the saddest things I've read. How could anyone do that to any animal? It's just horrible! So glad she is doing well after her surgery. I will definitely make a donation for her!
Pug hugs and kisses,
