Guardian Angels for Elton
Tuesday, 26 February 2013

Update on 3/29/2013: Sweet Elton is such a brave and patient little guy. He had his leg set, with the hope it would heal. Today's xrays show it is not healing, so the vet has reset it and we wait another two weeks to see what will be.

 

Thanks to everyone for supporting this brave little guy!!!

 

Original post:

 

This is Elton. This sweet little guy was turned in to animal services after he was attacked by a larger dog and suffered serious bite wounds to his abdomen and his legs. We answered their appeal for rescue and have taken this 8 month old pup into our care.

 

Elton visited the vet yesterday and xrays are showing his body did not sustain the worst of the damage. His leg is broken in three places, possibly impossible to repair. A second opinion will determine treatment.

 

Meanwhile he is resting comfortably with our Shelter Director.

 

Elton (so named because of his hairdo!) could sure use a Guardian Angel. Will you help?
