    DefaultAnother puppy with leg issues...

    This will be foster dog #3 with leg issues. First was Daisy, she had to have her leg amputated becuase of stupid owners. Then Gage was hit by a car and asked to be euthanized...and now needing second surgery. Tonight we took possession of Sampson.

    Meet Sampson. He is a 5.5 month old purebred lab. He has the chococlate pigmentation. He has papers but was from a BYBer. His owners are in the midst of a break up and the man of the house threw his mom out of the home and subsequently kicked Sampson in the leg and broke it. This happened 2 weeks ago. They soft-casted it but did not do anything beyond that because of expense.

    Well, today we got him from my friend downstate whom he was surrendered to. Tomorrow morning he goes to see how the leg is doing and whatnot. He's a nice pup...doesn't care for the crate too much (yet) and has irked Owen to no end.* He gets around pretty good with his cast.

    IMO he's too skinny right now, and I can't wait until my vet takes the cast off so they can bathe him.

    Here is Sampson.

    Good thing he's out of that house. If you do a fundraising drive for him, too, let me know. If you want to re-raffle the raffle tickets for Gage, feel free to offer mine also (not instead of), I'd rather the prizes go to help more labbies in need than to decorate my house.

    Good luck with this guy, Dani. He is adorable.

    oh TobysTrix, I think he won't have to have surgery...so, hopefully it won't be too expensive.

    Happy looking boy considering his owners let him down..I think he will be scooped right up.
    I don't know how you do it...
