Five Aussie shepherd puppies covered in filth found with broken legs

In Amarillo, Texas, a Good Samaritan found five Aussie shepherd puppies covered in filth.  All of the puppies suffer multiple breaks in their back legs, and one has a compound fracture which will require surgery.

The woman who found the puppies on Friday, near Rose Drive close to the park, brought them to the Canyon Road Pet Hospital. NewsChannel10 reports the attending veterinarian, Dr. Janice Wolf has never seen a case like this during her 45 years of practice.

“This one right here has both her back legs broken [white one]. This one is broken right here, and this one has actually a nasty wound on the inside where the leg is broken,” stated Dr. Wolf. “There is a possibility maybe the mother dog could’ve done it. They could have fallen, they could have become entrapped in something that snapped their legs. We just don’t know. There’s no way of knowing for sure what happened to these puppies to cause this.”

Oddly enough, besides their broken legs, the puppies are healthy, and everyone is hoping this is not a case of animal cruelty. Once their legs are splinted and healed, Lost Pets of Amarillo has offered to place them in foster homes and be placed for adoption when ready.

The surgical procedures for the Australian shepherd mixes is estimated to cost $800, and then there will be aftercare for the little ones. Donations can be made by calling the Canyon Road Pet Hospital at 806.359.9465.
