Fuzzy Wuzzy was found in extreme pain with his legs bound together. He was only 7.5 pounds and had a huge cast on when Scooby-Doo Rescue pulled him from the shelter.He was rushed to the vet, and upon arrival, the vets removed his cast. They could not believe what they saw -- there was a horrific wound on Fuzzy's back right leg. Then, the x-rays came in; not only did the x-ray confirm an amputation would be needed, but it also confirmed that his hip was not sitting in its joint, his tail was broken, he had a break in his upper leg, and his kneecap was on the opposite side of where it should be.
Fuzzy loves to be held and cuddled. He can walk, but his rescue limits him so no further damage is done. They are still waiting for a decision from the Orthopedic Surgeon to provide next steps. Sadly, we do not know who broke and bound him, but rest assured that from here on in, it will be nothing but kindness and love for our little fella.
UPDATE: The other day Fuzzy Wuzzy was finally able to meet with his new orthopedic surgeon after his first surgery was postponed; we got some amazing news. They want to try and save his leg! As for fixing his patella, they are choosing to wait for now until they see if they can save his leg. His rescue is looking into physical therapy options post-surgery to help build up his strength in his backend.
Please consider donating to this tiny pup as he waits for his surgery. Thank you to everyone that has donated thus far -- every little bit helps.
