Our sweet Lenny will finally be cleared for adoption Wednesday after his neuter. Lenny is a special boy with special little legs. He was pulled from the city shelter and was diagnosed with Dropped Carpus Deformities in his front legs. He saw a specialist for a second opinion just a few weeks ago who confirmed the diagnosis and treatment with our vet. For now the best thing we can do is give him is water therapy in the bath tub or where ever is deep enough for him to doggy paddle. Once he's fully grown he can be fitted for braces to use while he's really active for things such as walks and playtime. As of right now, this isn't causing him any pain. Both doctors are hopeful that with good nutrition, water therapy and the braces when he's older that the legs will correct themselves. They feel it's best to not do surgery unless it starts to cause him discomfort or begins to cause him issues with mobility. It for sure doesn't slow this boy down. He runs, jumps and plays like nothing is wrong. We say his legs give him character. He's our special boy and will require a special family and home. We know it's out there though. You can't help but to fall in love with Lenny when you meet him. He's such a loving boy. He does great with the dogs in his foster home and he absolutely adores kids. He's crate trained and doing well on house training. We think he's possibly a pointer mix around 6-8 months old. He weighs around 25lbs now. He's utd, dewormed and will be neutered April 6th.
