A dog missing much of his lower jaw has a date with UC Davis veterinarian surgeons Monday, after generous donors made his cross-country trip possible.
Lad’s jaw had to be removed after he was shot in the face last month in Kentucky. A nonprofit group has been working to raise money to get the collie to Davis to see specialists. These veterinarians also helped another injured dog, Kabang, who was injured by a motorcycle in the Philippines.
The Kentucky nonprofit group, Arrow Fund, posted a picture of Lad on the plans to California over the weekend, and said he was meeting with doctors Monday. They are hoping for reconstructive surgery options.
The group “Pilots N Paws” was able to help get Lad a special flight, so he could ride in the main section of the plane. On a commercial plane, he would of had to ride in the cargo area.
