What do you do when you're a cat rescue organization and you see a dog lying on the side of the road? You stop and help him. That's what the founders of SCOOP, Inc. did when they saw 6-month-old Buddy on the side of the road in April 2012. According to passersby, he had been there all day and no one would stop. It was obvious that he had been hit by a car and was disoriented, but so happy to see people stop and help him! He was not seriously injured and a few weeks later he was adopted by a family. Two months later he was returned to SCOOP. He had serious knee injuries, was having difficulty walking, and was clearly in pain. Buddy needs the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) repaired in both of his back legs. The ACL is the most important joint stabilizer connecting the femur to the tibia. Surgery is estimated at $4,350.00. Recovery will be about 10 weeks. Without the surgery, his injuries will cause lameness. Only surgery can restore proper limb stability and function. We want to see Buddy running and playing as all puppies should have the chance to do. He deserves a pain free and happy life! The first 6 months of Buddy's life are unknown, but several professionals who have seen him believe he was abused. He barks loudly in an attempt to make people leave him alone and he's extremely nervous around people. Buddy is very young and we know that with love, care, and training he can overcome his fears and be a happy dog! He's loved very much.
