At the Great Plains SPCA, a severely injured dog was left tied to the intake door late Tuesday night with a short note saying, “found this dog by the road.” Meet Winston – a brave dog left out in the cold for hours to suffer incredible pain – all by himself. What must he have been thinking?
The dog’s back leg, hanging loose like a noodle was fractured in THREE places & he was in an incredible amount of pain. Our Shelter Medicine jumped into action & quickly determined the best chance at a healthy, pain free life for Winston would mean amputating his severely broken and detached leg. He also has a severe puncture would through the right side of his cheek.Great Plains SPCA
No one knows what happened to Winston. Was he hit by a car or possibly had been in a fight with another animal? Tragically, Winston can’t tell us, but he is now on his way to recovery and learning to walk on three legs.
Winston needs a foster home to help with his recovery.
