This sweet boy will melt your heart if you’re willing to give him a second chance in life.
Hero’s rescue story:
Hero has a super sweet temperament, even though he has had an abusive past. He used to be chained outside of the house since puppyhood and was not fed regularly by the heartless owner. A kind neighbor noticed Hero not only being markedly bony but also beaten by the owner oftentimes. The neighbor offered food to Hero from time to time, and left notes to warn the owner to stop abusing Hero. However, poor Hero’s abusive life still last for a couple years, until one day the owner moved away.
Hero finally got freed after almost 3 years’ chained life; but he still waited loyally at the same spot for the owner to come back. The kind neighbor posted his story on internet seeking adoption for Hero, but did not get much interest mainly due to his slightly deformed hind limbs, despite his super sweet demeanor and aristocratic appearance. We responded to the plea for help and placed him with foster home while preparing him for adoption.
Other than his hind limbs, Hero received a clean bill of health after a complete checkup at the vet. Below quote the diagnosis of the prominent veterinarian Dr. Yeh on Hero’s hind limbs:
“Hind limbs revealed bowed stance, palpable grade IV bilateral medial patellar luxation. The patient can still walk, run & jump functionally”
“Despite the bowing and slightly abnormal walking gait, the dog is basically adapting quite well. He may as well do fine without corrective surgical procedures, as long as his owner accepted his present condition “As Is”. A living space with Non-slippery floor, avoiding trauma, and maintaining proper body weight will help him sustain a reasonable life quality. Older age osteoarthritis, with or without surgery, may be inevitable.”
