N. Fulton hospital saves dog's life, seeks funds to cover surgery

The Animal Hospital of Sandy Springs saved the life of a dog, but is turning to the public to cover the cost of the pup’s medical bill.

Dallas, a one-year-old Borzoi who broke both of his front legs during a recent morning run, needed a special surgery to keep him alive, so the Animal Hospital of Sandy Springs took him to a specialty hospital last week to make that happen.

Instead of euthanizing Dallas, his previous owners gave ownership to doctors at the hospital. When the dog is fully recovered, in about 12 weeks, he will be eligible for adoption.
