Aggie Mae’s Amputation

On July 8th, beloved bloodhound, Aggie Mae, wandered off from Johnny Connor’s yard, dragging a wire leash coated with hard plastic. Connor searched desperately for Aggie Mae with no luck.

The next day, Greg King of Texarkana that runs a dog rescue offered to help look for her.

“He looked for her solid for days and days in the blistering heat with no luck. We had to come to a point to call the search off. It was the hardest decision I had to make.”

“I went days hoping she would be at my door in the mornings. As the days went on I started to lose all hope of ever having her back. I could not bear the thought of her just laying out there dying in the heat. So I convinced myself she was picked up by someone, and they kept her.”

On Saturday, July 29th Connor’s neighbor called and said Aggie Mae was back.

“I was in shock, but I could tell by the sound of her voice that something was wrong . She said Aggie Mae is skin and bones and was missing part of her back leg.”

After 21 days, Aggie Mae had returned and was in dire need of a veterinarian who could care for her extensive issues.

Greg King met Connor at The Vet and streamed a live broadcast to facebook concerning Aggie Mae’s condition.

“I was blown away from the kindness of people calling in donations to help with the vet bill. Dr. Ward said it was amazing that she had the will to live and that he was going to take care of her and decided to keep her through Wednesday after surgery.”

“I don’t have kids, and she is like my child. I would have done what it took to get her the medical care that she needed, but Greg King and his wonderful wife made it possible for all the donations and the love that was shown. Aggie Mae and I would not be sitting in the good shape we are in if it weren’t for the Kings, Dr. Ward, and their love.”

“I want to give a huge thank you to Greg King, Canine Rescue, and Dr. Ward for all the support for Aggie Mae. My heart has truly been touched forever. These are amazing people. God touched me deeply by putting the Kings in my life.”
