Update on Shamus - 6/24
June 30, 2016

Shamus had surgery on his second leg! What a success! He is still on cage rest, but already starting to stand normally. He's still that happy  See more

THE STORY:

Shamus is a 3 1/2 month old sweet, gentle and loving puppy. This poor pup was pulled from a high kill shelter in rural North Carolina. He was the runt of the litter and struggled to stand, run....to be a normal puppy. His determination allowed him the strength to hold his legs in a squatting position, while his body would only allow him to drag his rear end. After seeking medical advice from several veterinarians, an orthopedic surgeon stated that he had luxated patella's in both his legs. This meant that his knee caps were not in their correct place, and were actually dislocated to the outer portion of his legs. This has caused his tendons to stretch and the his front legs to become bowlegged due to overcompensating. He needs to have double knee reconstructive surgery, as well as physical therapy to help him to walk like a normal puppy. As he grows, this will become an even larger issue, so this surgery must be addressed as quickly as possible. This surgery will costs our charity thousands of dollars, but every penny raised will go towards the care Shamus requires to make a full recovery. Please donate whatever you can. We are a registered 501c3 charity, so every dollar raised will go directly to Shamus, and no administrative fees are deducted, as everyone in our organization volunteers.
