Hi, I am a stray named " Drifter"

This is a special place for pups to share their love and support for each other during difficult times; it's a place to light candles, give the "Power of the Paw," and let everyfur know they are never ever alone.

I didn't have a good time for Dog knows how long. My now FD found me on a busy highway when I almost got killed. He stopped his rig and saved me. I had porcupine quills in my paw and was really hurting. Mt FD pulled them out and for that part I felt better. He noticed I had burrs buried in my fur but had no way of getting them out. He saw there was a cut and some blood just under my ear but couldn't see how bad.
For 2 days we travelled in this big truck until we got to Nova Scotia. That is when I met my FM. She use to be a groomer so getting the burrs off was no biggie. When she got them off, she saw how bad I was injured. It was really late and I wasn't bleeding etc. so she took me to the vet the next morning. Turns out it is a very serious injury. Besides the 2 inch long cut.. in that were 2 puncture wounds that went deep into my ear canal. Mom said it seemed like I was deaf or very hard of hearing in that ear. The vet confirmed it. So the vet washed out the punctures and when she squirted the solution in the wounds it came out my ear confused .I got stitches but some is left open to drain. I should know in about 3 - 4 weeks if my hearing is ok in that ear. If the scar tissue forms, I will need surgery.
Now I am only about 10 mths old. So please pray that I recover compleletly and don't need surgery or remain deaf in that ear.

Hi Drifter,

What a story!

Your FD and FM are wonderful people. Tell them it is okay if you can't hear. My sister Sydney doesn't hear much and she is just fine.

Sending the power of the paw that you get better soon. way to go

And hugs to you and your furever family. hughughug

Keep us posted on your progress. We love to hear success stories!

Thank you everyone for the well wishes. FM told me of a couple of cats and a few other doggies she had that were deaf and one that was blind and deaf. She said it was no biggie to her. She knows what to do.

So far nobody has claimed me. FM says she will keep trying places all over New Brunswick. Being a Border Collie mix... just because I was found in one place, don't mean I am from that area. FM is getting me to have some manners. Everytime she tries, I get the zoomies snoopy

Boy Drifter, that sure would be nice if these nice people can keep you forever so you don't have to keep drifting around. I lucked out with my forever home 4 yrs ago. Mom tried to find me a home after she brought me back to health and then changed her mind when someone else wanted to take me and I've been with her ever since. I'm the little princess of the house.

Well I think if Drifters FM or FD don't have any luck finding his owners, Drifter already has a forever home he has taken their hearts and his too.

You sure were blessed to be rescued by a kind 2 legger, I wish the best for you and your *new* family.
