This German Shepard puppy was brought to our attention after the city of Alvin brought it in to the veterinary clinic that handles all their injured animals. She had been hit by a vehicle and was found bleeding profusely in a bush. They rushed her to the vet while she was still in shock and x-rays were done and it was found out that she had an elbow that had been dislocated. The vet tried to put the joint back together but was unsuccessful. After locating the owner and the owner saying they were coming in to pick the dog up and then never showing up to claim the puppy. Alvin-Friendswood Veterinary Clinic then reached out to the Bay Area Veterinary Specialists. Dr. Max Banwell came in on his day off AND it was even a holiday to try and help this baby! After a thorough attempt at trying to fix the elbow, without surgery, he concluded after an hour of trying that he couldn't fix it and the probability of her being able to keep the leg was minimal. He said the leg would most likely never function again the way it should and to leave it would cause her more pain in the long run.She is a very sweet baby. This was when she first came in before the leg was deemed unusable.We then, as a group, decided in order to keep her from being euthanized we would try and rehab & rehome this puppy after her amputation. So, not only are we looking to raise money to help with the cost of treatment & rehab with the leg we are also looking for a foster home or even a PERMANENT home for her to live in! Puppies don't belong in a shelter/kennel type of situation. Please help in any way you can!
