Gordo the Dog

Gordo the dog was released from the City of Angels Veterinary Hospital yesterday. Gordo was hit and run over by a van during a high-speed police chase in South Los Angeles. He underwent emergency surgery to save his hind legs that were nearly severed by the rims of the van.
The vets did a great job and saved young Gordo, who can now gingerly walk.
The driver of the van that hit Gordo was charged with felony evading, vehicle theft, driving recklessly, and felony hit-and-run for running over Gordo.
Gordo's plight became national news and people all over the county donated money to saving him. The money that wasn't used for the surgery will either be returned or donated to the Culver City Police K-9 unit.
