Humpty

Humpty Dumpty – Luckily someone did put him back together again …

One of our favorite success stories is Humpty the Chihuahua. Dr. Van Maele fell for this little guy during her first year as a veterinarian in her internship. Humpty got his name from his numerous broken bones he obtained after being hit by a car. He fractured both femurs, both fibulas, both tibias, and fractured his pelvis in over 5 places! Dr. Van Maele decided to adopt him after having to place 9 bone pins in his legs. Humpty has lived with Dr. KVM for 9 years, is one of the fastest dogs at Ocean Beach Dog Beach and enjoys hiking in the Cuyamacas.
