About 20 miles west of downtown Houston, a 13-week-old German shepherd was rescued on Friday after his family requested that the veterinarian hospital euthanize their puppy after he suffered a broken leg.
Sauver Des Chiens German Shepherd Dog Rescue in Texas, stepped forward to help after receiving a call from the Sugar Land Veterinarian Specialists. It appears the puppy named Milo had been treated for Parvovirus last week and had been on his way to recovery when he apparently “escaped” from the backyard and was subsequently struck by a car. After being hit, the family took him to the veterinarian hospital and after being told what it would cost to surgically repair Milo’s leg, they decided to euthanize the puppy instead.
“Again we are thankful that Sugar Land Veterinary reached out to the rescue community knowing that this pup has a lot of living to do,” the organization posted on their social media page along with photos of the puppy and x-rays of his severe leg fracture.
Milo has been moved to Neighborhood Vet Centers – Groves where additional testing and examinations will be done to determine if the puppy’s leg can be saved. And since Milo is still recuperating from Parvovirus, it will have to be determined if the puppy is strong enough to undergo surgery.
“This boy needs emergency medical funds. The estimate for his surgery to repair the leg is $2,000-$4,000. We are hurting from all of the medical cases we have taken in lately, but we couldn’t let that baby suffer.
