SHERWOOD, Ark. (KTHV) - The surgery for a dog abandoned outside the Sherwood Animal Shelter was successful.

According to the Mr. Wiggles Facebook page, doctors successfully removed the disc in his spinal cord, which was a problem that caused the 4-year-ols dachshund to lose use of his back legs.

He'll have to stay at the animal hospital for four to five days.

The surgery is in part to people like you who sent in donations to pay for the surgery.
