This sweet Basset Hound is “Da Vinci”…no relationship to Leonardo. Da Vinci is a 10 year old Basset Hound who experienced a 2 day period of reluctance to climb stairs. Da Vinci’s mother found him unable to move his rear legs Sunday morning. The local fire department arrived at Da Vinci’s home, to help load his 70 pound frame into her car for transport to VRCC. Da Vinci underwent emergent MRI study which documented a ruptured disc and surgery was performed. Thanks to the fire department for giving Da Vinci the ability to walk again.
