Bonny Kelani the Labrador has a nickname: Super Dog.
She’s a great girl, for sure, but her alternate moniker is a little tongue-in-cheek. Five months ago, she went flying off a highway overpass in Aurora, Colo. A driver on the street below stopped to pick up the wounded pup and took her to a nearby animal hospital. (Nobody saw what happened, but the theory is that she was thrown.)
Bonny’s injuries—including a torn ACL and broken tooth—required surgery. The hospital called the Aurora Animal Shelter and, like many shelters across the country, they took up Bonny’s case. Using money from their donation coffers, the shelter paid for Bonny’s surgeries and began the process of finding the Super Dog a home.
