Tim decided to call his wife, Kentee Pasek, to tell her what had happened and told her that Dexter had injured his front legs a bit.

Kentee told The Dodo:

“When I arrived on the scene, it was much worse than I imagined.”


Because they live in the middle of the mountains, Dexter and his parents had to drive 45 minutes to get veterinary care. Tim and Kentee were unsure if Dexter would make it through the long journey, but his will to live won the battle and he made it out alive.

The veterinarian treated him urgently and, thanks to his experience, he carried out the necessary procedures to restore the health of little Dexter.

Kentee commented:

“Dr. Franklin from the San Juan Veterinary Clinic saved Dexter’s life. The Dr attributes Dexter’s determination to live.”

Although Dexter managed to survive this horrific accident, his rehabilitation process would be long and it would take a lot of dedication to fully recover.

The woman didn’t know how she managed to climb the stairs, but she was determined to find out how she did it, so she decided to make a video.

Kantee took Dexter down and put him on the patio, she started recording with her cell phone and the dog started walking straight ahead of her.
