Dr. Cassandra Bliss, a specialist at BluePearl, and Dr. Laurie Wright from the Kent County Animal Shelter, brought Foxy to the WOOD TV8 studios Friday morning to give an update on the dog’s condition.

The Kent County Animal Shelter is accepting applications for those who want to adopt Foxy. Wright said Foxy is doing very well post-surgery, but still needs a few more days of recovery. Foxy also needs to be spayed before leaving the shelter.
