Update: Rescue Dog from VERG Finds Loving Home

Bandy, an 8 to 10-year-old male American Staffordshire Terrier mix, was brought to VERG a few months back after being struck by a vehicle near the Coney Island Boardwalk. The canine’s accident caused injuries to his left forelimb, pulmonary contusions and two deep wounds located on his left shoulder and pectoral muscle. Luckily, Bandy is now happy and healthy thanks to the daily supportive care and treatment that he received from the VERG staff. And what’s even better—he has found a loving home!

According to VERG Medical Director Inbal Lavotshkin, her mother, Anna, fell for Bandy after she saw all the news coverage surrounding his story. Having recently lost a pet of her own, Anna visited Bandy at the VERG facility and couldn’t put him back in his cage. She brought him home that day, and he has been a part of their family ever since!

“He has been pure joy,” says Lavotshkin. “He gets along fabulously with all pets and people that he meets, and he is particularly loving towards my mother’s grandchildren. He spends most of his days lounging in the house or yard and spends his nights in a cozy bed.”

Bandy’s recovery and adoption story was also featured on News 12 Brooklyn. Click here to watch the full clip! And to help more rescues like Bandy, please visit Positive Tails, a nonprofit that funds medical care for abused and displaced animals in New York.
