Dog rescued from street begins healing after surgery

Posted:
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

A dog rescued after being struck by three different vehicles is on the mend.

Libby, a Labrador-Pit Bull mix, returned to Two Rivers Veterinary Hospital over the weekend following surgery to repair a broken pelvis.

According to hospital staff, Libby is doing well. She's on strict bed rest for eight weeks, allowing only three to four slow walks a day. The restrictions will ensure proper healing of her hind legs.

Specialists at BluePearl Veterinary Partners in Brentwood performed the surgery last Thursday. Doctors inserted a plate in her hip.

An outpouring of support helped pay for Libby's medical expenses, after she was left for dead on Lebanon Road near Spence Lane on April 22.

Witnesses say she was struck by three different vehicles and left in the roadway. Three women stopped and picked her up.

One of the women transported her to Two Rivers Veterinary Hospital in Donelson where x-rays revealed the extent of her injuries.

News and radio coverage, as well as social media efforts, helped raised more than $6,000.

Two Rivers Veterinary Hospital continues to document her progress on the hospital's Facebook page.

Applications are also being accepted at the hospital for those wishing to adopt Libby when she fully recovers.
