Kirby was discovered as a stray wandering around a field. He was only using three of his legs and favored his left hind leg as he limped. When called over, he climbed right into his rescuers car and was happy to leave that field.
During his initial vet visit, it was discovered that Kirby’s leg was severely fractured. The vet recommended an orthopedic specialist to attempt to repair his leg. In a worst case scenario, if the leg is not operable, it will need to be amputated.
Kirby is going into surgery today! We’ll keep everyone pupdated. He’s been boarding with Deity since he was rescued, and we’re hoping to find him a forever home for him to recover comfortably in.
Kirby’s surgery for his left femur fracture went well and he’s resting comfortably. He’s not putting weight on his leg yet, but is starting to test it out. Take a look at the before and after photos.
