The Great Greta

Remember The Great Gatsby, a legendary novel about the Roaring 20’s full of glamor and the romance of noble deeds? Well, today we share the tale of The Great Greta, a Terrier who followed a young man home one day and worked her way into a community’s heart.

The name, Greta, means “Pearl” and just like a pearl, Greta dazzles everyone she meets. So, when Greta suffered a debilitating back injury, her family did not have to think twice about getting help for her. Greta underwent back surgery with Dr. Rebecca Ball, DACVS, and has begun a series of physical rehabilitation treatments with Dr. Karen Hull and Dr. Kelly Fisher, CCRP.

Along with the support of her family and medical team at Circle City Veterinary Specialty & Emergency Hospital, Greta has developed a significant fan base because she has accompanied one of her favorite people, her dad, Ben, on his travels around town. Her glittering personality charmed the masses and get well wishes flow in as word of her injury spreads. On October 23, the Tomlinson Tap Room will host a Tap Takeover & Fundraiser for Greta with the Fountain Square Brewing Company donating one of their favorite brews and affectionately renaming it, “Puppy Pilsner”.

Take a few minutes to meet Greta and make a toast on her behalf. Her sparkle remains in spite of her circumstance and we will bring you back to her story as her rehabilitation continues.
