Mason on the Mend

Two weeks after making a miraculous, painful journey home, a famous tornado survivor grows stronger.

Two weeks after making a miraculous, painful journey home, a famous tornado survivor grows stronger.

2 plates and seventeen screws were required to put Mason’s badly broken legs back together. The stoic dog made an arduous cross-country trip to find his way home after being blown away by a tornado April 27th.

To see him when he first returned, his front legs flopping from distal radial ulnar fractures, one would be hard pressed to believe that he would heal soon, but the prognosis is actually quite good: Mason will be released after just five weeks of rehab.

If you’re one of those who fretted the details in our first report, do not despair. Morgan’s family originally believed that they would be homeless when Mason was released and were prepared to relinquish him if it were in his best interest. In a turn of good fortune they’ve learned that their home will be livable soon, and they’ll be waiting with open arms when he’s ready to return.

  1. Bless him…….This little angel has so much courage and spirit…he deserves to make a full recovery and a wonderful family that will never give up on him no matter what.

  2. I’m SO glad for the turn of events that returns this survivor to his family. He didn’t crawl home on broken limbs to be at a place no longer there, he crawled home to be with his people. They need to be there for him. THIS will be a happy ending to Oz.

  3. So glad to hear his humans are able to take him home and he will not end up in a shelter. Hope all works out for the others who were misplaced also. Humans and animals!

  4. It is great to see that some joy can come from a terrible situation…I hope that there are lots of happy days ahead for the family and Mason

  5. Awsome, God Bless all of the people there helping fix and heal all of the tornado victims both 2 legged and 4

  7. I hope they don’t leave him in the garage again when a storm comes. I hope and pray he isn’t an ‘outside’ dog, but lives with the family and that they give him HW preventative and so forth. They have been given a second chance, not many people get that.
