A year ago, Ethan was left outside of the Kentucky Humane Society close to death. Saturday he celebrated a year of recovery with a party and fundraiser.
Dogs were running around everywhere at PJ’s Dog Bar Saturday afternoon. But one in particular stood out: a massive mutt wearing a fur-lined black coat. Every time he passed, people called to him and tried to get a pet in.
It made sense: Ethan was, after all, the reason for the party.
As he roamed around the bar, Dr. Emily Bewley kept a close eye on him. A veterinarian, she was part of the team that nursed him back to health after he was found outside of the Kentucky Humane Society, severely emaciated and dehydrated.
“I’ve never seen a dog that close to death before that made it,” Bewley said.
