GOOD-BYE TO DUNCAN. Team Up For Tucson with the help
of a couple of Newfoundland rescue friends pulled Duncan from PACC’s
sickbay about 1 month ago. He needed immediate medical help
including the amputation of one of his legs. Team Up For Tucson
covered all medical costs and a TUFT family and another family
fostered him. After his surgery he was doing great until 2
Saturdays ago when he had a reaction to Deramax and his sutures
began to look infected. At 3am he was rushed to an emergency animal
hospital where the veterinarian that was working that morning had
just lost her dog, Bee, 2 weeks earlier.
and Duncan could’ve been twins each had long black hair, a white
chest and weighed 62 pounds. The vet had been to PACC searching for
a new companion and with no luck decided her next dog had to find
her. She took one look at Duncan and began to cry remembering her
sweet Bee. When she touched Duncan’s face he actually grabbed her
hand with his paws! For those of you who know Duncan this comes as
no surprise he is very affectionate and intuitive. She looked at his
paperwork and saw that he was a foster dog that needed a home. She
said she knew instantly that she had found her dog. Duncan is now
named Chepi Ochoa (meaning-Sprit Wolf) and in the best hands making
a full recovery. He will be moving to VA with his forever mom, the
veterinarian, and enjoying life to the fullest. Thank you to all the
volunteers at PACC and the forever homes that give dogs like Chepi a
new lease on life.
