Arrival Story:
My wife and I adopted Poncho from Homeward Trails animal rescue. Poncho is from West Virginia and had been shot in the head with the placement of the bullet we didn't think it was an accident because it shattered his jawbone and his right eye socket. We were also told he was 10 years old and wouldn't live long. I knew this wasn't true when we went to pick him up, Poncho was full of life and he didn't look very old. Despite the hole in his face and the fact that he was horribly emaciated he seemed to be a happy pup. We ended up having to get the bone fragments removed from his face and some dead tissue removed. Poncho recovered nicely and is now a healthy happy dog that we affectionately call "retard".

Poncho is Homeward Trails poster dog and is going to be in the October 08' issue of The Northern Virginia Magazine. Thanks Prince William Animal Hospital for the great work on putting Poncho back together!

Forums Motto:
lead face- he still has the bullet!

Poncho went under the knife again, reoccurring problems from his original bullet wound caused a lump in his neck. Worried about the lump I rushed Poncho to the vet on Tuesday where the vet said he had they were going to have to operate. Today I found out that if he has a reaction again where his tissue starts dieing again he is going to have to go to a specialist to get operated on. Poor Poncho is going to have to wear socks on his feet to keep from scratching his wound, he isn't going to be happy!
