Gordo is a pure bred bulldog. He was at home, minding his own business, recovering from eye surgery when his owner accidentally hit him with her car -- and decided not to incur the expense of repairing his broken leg. The vet's office contacted us asking if we would save the dog, because while a broken leg may be expensive, it is not a reason to put one to sleep.
Gordo did need to get his rear leg cut off. It had been crushed too badly. But, he's doing fine now. He gets along quite well as a three legged dog. He is good with children, has been exposed to other dogs and is fine, and basically ignores the cats. He likes to trot along with his foster kids when they ride their bikes, so we know his surgery has not hurt is fun-loving spirit. He's a good boy and now just needs a loving, responsible home.
Gordo comes to the shelter every Tuesday - Saturday of the week, so come see him at Dog & Kitty City!
This animal has been lucky enough to be adopted into a loving home! Please help us find homes for the others by contributing in any of these ways.
