A young German shepherd dubbed “Army” is lucky to be alive. Recently, the handsome, one-year-old dog was found with grievous injuries by a police officer in Santa Ana, California.
The compassionate officer took the injured dog to a vet clinic and the veterinarian reached out to the German Shepherd Rescue of Orange County for help. Maria Dales, director of the rescue agency told the Pet Rescue Report about the call the organization received from one of their veterinary partners:
Initial diagnosis was two broken front legs, apparently hit by car. We had to make a life or death decision right then as to whether or not we could help, so we took a leap of faith.
