In Los Angeles, California, a six-month-old German shepherd named Bruno had been asleep when his owners pulled into the driveway of their home. They expected Bruno to move, but the puppy had been fast asleep and didn’t hear them – tragically the puppy was struck by the vehicle.
Bruno was seriously injured; his pelvis was fractured and his hip was dislocated, and so he would need orthopedic surgery. And instead of ordering the surgery needed to save Bruno, the family asked their family veterinarian to euthanize the puppy.
The staff at the hospital reached out to Westside German Shepherd Rescue of Los Angeles to help Bruno and help him receive the surgery he needs.
“Such a precious baby! Hard for us to even imagine. It was their fault and they weren’t going to give him a chance?
Another baby who needs a Westside family to be there for him…”
Bruno is on his way and being prepared for surgery.
