The next day he went in for surgery where they found a very tiny undeveloped eyeball way inside the socket.  More than likely due to inbreeding. The socket was cleaned out, and sewn shut. It took a long time for the socket to mend completely, but he was a trooper and a total lover boy from day 1.

Grant Amount Awarded: $200

Rescued From: City of Wyandotte Animal Control

Story, submitted by STH: “His story as we know it began in January. Bitter cold temperatures had him literally frozen to the ground. He was brought to a local shelter after he had been peeled off the ice. With a wound to his paw, emaciated, and unable to stand because of an injury to his leg, shelter staff immediately cared for him. He slowly began to heal but still found himself in the shelter.

It was the middle of March and he took his freedom ride into our rescue. His foster mom immediately saw signs that he was suffering. He was diagnosed with a torn ACL and was in extreme pain. We took action and made sure he was comfortable while we worked with our veterinarian partners to determine the best course of action.

We strive to give our rescues the best chance at a healthy life and the best start in their new adopted home. Gus recently had intensive surgery on his leg and is now recouping in his foster home. He faces daily medications and icing of his leg, and he will need physical therapy. It will be a long road, but we will be there for him the whole way. We can’t wait to see Gus running around pain-free.”
