A bouncy, sweet puppy is in dire need of help. The five-month-old puppy, named Loki, needs to have surgery on two broken legs – if a rescue group can’t pull him before Monday, he will be put down.
Loki arrived to the Mesquite, Texas, animal shelter with no broken legs – it is surmised that he was repetitively jumping inside of his kennel run and his young bones, still growing, fractured. The rescue coordinator for the animal shelter wrote:
“This is devastating! He is the sweetest little pup and he tries so hard to stand and walk. He is still at the vet clinic in a smaller cage to restrict movement and on pain meds, but he needs help ASAP. We are asking for at most a rescue to take him and get the surgery for his legs.”
The shelter has been trying to find a rescue group to take Loki in, but so far, their efforts haven’t been successful. Loki has been stabilized by a veterinarian – but the surgery that he needs is beyond the means of the animal shelter. Please network Loki’s information and help him find a rescue group who can help.
Injury note: Appears to have distal fractures on both tibia in his back legs right on/near the growth plate.
Note – please do not contact the animal shelter unless you are able to provide assistance to Loki.
