You will probably all remember Hero aka Shadow and the success we had with helping him walk on four legs again, well meet Luke, Shadows new adoptive brother. Luke was found as a puppy by Lorraine oram dumped in a grapefruit field alongside his siblings and assumed parents. Lorraine wasnt able to capture Luke who clearly had a deformed leg the first time round but she persevered in her quest to save this baby boy and finally she took the opportunity when Luke ran down a hole. She made a grab for him and he bit her , undeterred she took off her T-shirt and placed it over his head. Lorraine saved this young pup from certain death , amongst thousands of grapefruit trees her determination paid off. Luke's siblings sadly werent as lucky and have yet to be found. With loving care Lorraine kept Luke until he was ready to come to the UK to join Shadow who himself has endured so much in his short life. Shadow and Luke both have their front right leg missing , what a perfect pair they are. Lets hope Luke can join his big adoptive brothers life of walking on all fours again. Shadow has done amazingly with his prosthetic limb, it's changed his life, he can now enjoy long walks in the forest, run and play without getting exhausted and its given him a relatively pain free life. Without his new leg Shadows hips would have deteriorated so quickly his quality of life would have been questionable. Luke is a gsd too , no doubt his own hips will suffer too. Lukes leg : luke has a deformed front right leg , old break above the elbow . His foot is also deformed . He will require surgery to remove his leg . With the help of seadown vet yet again , we are hoping to save part of his upper limb to enable an orthopets prosthetic leg to be fitted. Luke also has two breaks in his tail bone , yet to be decided upon what action is any is required . Open wound to his deformed elbow is causing him pain but the amputation will solve this pressing issue. We are keeping it clean to avoid infection until such a time his operation takes place. Luke is a true survivor , and has such a happy friendly nature. He loves hugs and adores everyone. He's a little shy at first but will gladly sit on your lap ......oh boy hope he grows out of his lap dog stage, a gsd thinking he's a lap dog is not going to be fun :) Please donate just s little to help Luke , we need approx £6000 all in for the surgery and prosthetic A huge thank you must be said to: Lorraine Oram for caring so much to save Luke Costa Bianca dog rehoming for all there help with getting Luke to the UK Seadown vets , Hythe Orthopets And everyone who donates and follows the progress of both Shadow and Luke
