Laeddis came to us in the arms of a good Samaritan. He was limping down the side of a busy road. He was dehydrated and scared, but in no time he was filled with wiggles and tail wags. We estimated his age at 3 months old. He was taken to our vet and x-rayed. It was determined that his femur was broken and he would need immediate surgery to set it. During surgery the vet was able to estimate his injuries at a few days old. Had he come to us any later, Laeddis would have lost his leg. He had a rod inserted to stabilize the bone and allow him to keep his leg. Laeddis has since been adopted and is living with his new parents. He is in training to be a therapy dog in a retirement home. We could not thank the Petfinder Foundation enough! Thank you for helping us change this little life!
