He is in good health, up to date on shots, no heartworm. He had x-rays done on his legs after an odd gait & some limping. This showed his hip was dislocated. He has surgery to fix his hip on June 7th. He is doing so well & the very next day was using his leg again - I need to get him to slow down & take it easy sometimes! His leg had been like this for some time so he may require some long-term joint care, but otherwise his leg does not seem to bother him & he is healing well. I am hoping to get him into a local rehab place to learn some exercises and stretches for him. His x-rays showed that he has bee bees in him from being shot, so his waryness towards people is understandable. He's had it pretty tough, it seems; he is so sweet and goofy & he just deserves the world.
