Ike was found on the side of a road, hungry and visibly lost. At approximately 12 weeks old, he weighed just 22 pounds. We immediately took him in, believing he was a Hurricane Ike refugee, hence his name. Ike was diagnosed with severe hip dysplasia at nine months old. Following two hip replacements, he is now 87 pounds with a full and happy life ahead of him.
