Meet Trooper, an 8 week old puppy that was left for dead after being run over in the road. A couple was driving along a country road out in Franklin County and swerved to miss something that they saw lying in the middle of the road. At first they thought it was a possum, but as they drove closer they thought that it might be a dog. Unable to just keep driving without knowing for sure, they turned around in the road to take a closer look. They realized that it was indeed a small puppy, badly injured and not moving. When they got out of the car and ran over to the dog, they saw that he was still breathing. He whined weakly when they picked him up; he was barely alive. They wrapped him up in a sweatshirt and drove to the nearest vet that was open on a Saturday afternoon. The vet examined the puppy and told them that he had a broken pelvis, infection, was full of worms, and had the beginning stages of demodex mange along with other health issues as a result of not being cared for. His survival and future uncertain, the puppy spent the night in the veterinary ICU.
The couple that had rescued the puppy could not afford to pay for his medical care; they had to find a rescue group willing to take him or he would be put to sleep. Mutts-n-Stuff has taken the puppy in and we have given him the name Trooper, because of his resiliency and fight for life! We need YOUR help to pay for Trooper’s medical care and recovery.
