Scrappy’s ‘Pawly’ Paw

Scrappy is a Hydrocarbon Detection Dog who works at Durham and Darlington Fire and Rescue Service with his handler Lee and is a lively, boisterous ‘Sprocker’. Scrappy has had a ‘pawly’ poor since Christmas, and although this hasn’t stopped him performing his duties and enjoying himself. Lee has decided that he still isn’t right and so Scrappy has a visit to the vets tomorrow morning where he has an MRI scan booked to see what’s going on.

It's not getting him down!

It’s not getting him down!

The vets seem to think it’s a cartilage injury, which is just taking a while to repair itself. However, the MRI will confirm if this is the case or if the joint needs to be ‘flushed’ to remove any loose-floating dead cartilage that may be getting trapped inside the joint, causing him discomfort.


Please will you keep Scrappy in your thoughts tomorrow morning – we will let you know how he gets on!


If you would like to chat with Scrappy yourself he is  @ScrappyFireDog on twitter, and he has his own facebook page and YouTube channel.
