Gov. Justice: Babydog out of successful ACL surgery

CHARLESTON, WV — Gov. Jim Justice and First Lady Cathy Justice are happy to announce that their cherished English Bulldog, Babydog, has successfully undergone ACL surgery today.

“While today was really tough, Babydog has always been tough, too,” Gov. Justice said. “Babydog says ‘One ACL surgery down and one more to go!’ We are immensely grateful for the outpouring of love, support, and prayers we have received. Cathy and I ask for continued thoughts and prayers for Babydog going forward.”

The surgery was performed by Dr. Otto I. Lanz, DVM, DACVS, at the Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine’s Veterinary Teaching Hospital.
