My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Silver came into the rescue with a badly injured rear leg. At his first vet visit it was discovered after imaging that he had actually been shot in the rear leg. Because of silver's young age the vet approximated the wound to have happened when he was around 4 months of age. Unfortunately the bullet fragmented a lot as well as completely destroyed the ability to surgically reconstruct it . In addition to all this the leg was badly infected because the wound was at least 6 months old already and never was cared for.He does use his rear leg to a degree and all the nerves seem to be intact. But he will have a limp for the rest of his life. He is the sweetest boy and loves getting attention and learning new skills.
