Meet Gordon, an 8 year old Weimaraner who, about a month ago, managed to escape from his yard through the new set of front gates that had only just been installed. Unfortunately Gordon lives on a busy Adelaide Road and ran out into the path of a car.

Gordon is an amazing dog who throughout all of his trauma, intensive nursing care and surgery was always bright and happy to see everyone; especially when his family arrived. Gordon was in the hospital for just over a week, before going home for ongoing nursing care with his family.
To date Gordon is doing well. He is recovering at home and is now up and walking around. He still has a long way to go with recovery, but through the love and dedication of his owners he should make a good recovery.
