ADOPTABLE PET OF THE WEEK
12/6/13 TO 12/12/13
Meet Humpty Dumpty!
This poor boy was hit by a car. They did find his owners, but they did not want to pay for any of his medical issues. He has been hospitalized with us since 9/6, and we wish we had some better news. He has a broken pelvis and appears to have nerve damage as one leg is “dead,” and our vet cannot see it regaining anything, so it would have to be amputated. That is obviously something we can do; however, he has only limited movement in the other back leg. They think that might be due to the swelling and trauma. Or at least that is what we are all hoping. We do not know if what the outcome will be for this sweet boy so keep him in your thoughts.
UPDATE: 11/9: Humpty is now doing well after his surgery. It did take him a few weeks to recover as he appears to have vWD (bleeding disorder in Dobes). We will test him in a few weeks. So our million dollar miracle dog is now ready for adoption. He cannot go to a home with more than 2 steps as he is still adjusting to losing his leg.
