Stats: puppy, male
Adoption Fee: TBD
On Memorial Day we received an urgent message regarding a puppy whose leg had been completely ripped off.
We weren’t sure what had happened, but we knew this puppy needed help ASAP. We met the owners surrendering him at the emergency vet and sure enough, his front leg was gone from the elbow down. He had exposed bone and tissue that was already infected. It was stated that the neighbors dog may have attacked him, but the event was not witnessed.
The emergency clinic got him cleaned up and on pain meds and antibiotics. The next morning, we got his full amputation scheduled for June 1.
We can’t imagine the trauma Knox has experienced and the pain he was in, but he has shown incredible resilience and a wonderful personality through it all. We can’t wait to get this sweet little boy pain free and on his way to a happy, full life.
