He came to us with a multitude of health issues. Back in 2011 he fell out of a moving car and broke his femur. It was repaired with a pin, but that pin has since broken. Unfortunately, the orthopedic specialist doesn't believe repairing it will be successful. Amputation is also not an option as his opposite rear leg has a bone weakening issue which would not support his body. He puts weight on and uses both legs, but he is unstable and cannot walk long distances.
He also came to us with a perineal hernia, which required an extensive surgery to both tack down his internal organs to his abdominal wall, but also repair the weakened muscle wall. In another unfortunate turn of events, Shorty has been experiencing some bladder leakage since the surgery. He sometimes will dribble during his sleep or on the way to take him outside. This may improve as he continues to heal from his surgery, but it may not improve.
Shorty is a sweet boy who has the softest fur ever and enjoys being pet. He is a happy boy and gets along with other dogs. He would love a home with a lot of love and minimal physical activity.
Shorty is looking for his angel that will look past his physical disabilities and into his heart. Do you think you could be the person to help change Shorty's life?
