Little Red’s Tough Break
MILWAUKEE – Earlier this week, a 13-week-old Pit Bull Terrier mix puppy with a severely broken leg was surrendered to the Wisconsin Humane Society. Little Red’s guardian was unable to care for him and decided the best thing to do was bring him to WHS where he knew the puppy would receive medical attention and good care.
After a thorough examination and a round of x-rays, WHS veterinarians determined Little Red’s leg couldn’t be saved due to the severity of the break. His entire leg was successfully amputated. The day after his surgery, staff could tell Little Red was relieved to no longer have the burden of the painful, limp leg.
Little Red is now recovering at WHS and is starting to come out of his shell. He loves to greet visitors and is generous with kisses. Despite Little Red’s traumatic injury, he is gaining confidence and opening his heart to a more promising future.
Little Red will soon be placed with a volunteer foster family to heal and will be available for adoption after he is fully recovered. To learn more about Little Red, contact the Wisconsin Humane Society at (414) ANIMALS or visit www.wihumane.org.
