Kirby was adopted in July by a family who is just as active as he is! They go on a lot of adventures together and love spending time outside.
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.
Kirby is an incredibly sweet boy who is now adopted! From his new parents: “He’s a cuddler and fun to hang out with. He had ZERO training, so it has been a little like getting a 1.5-year-old puppy but he’s very bright and picking things up quickly!”
Kirby’s leg is healing very well. ” The first couple of weeks were hard for him and very sore but a week ago he got the all-clear from the doctor that his leg is healed up to ramp up activity and, boy, was he ever ready for that,” his family said. “He cannot get enough walkies. He’s up to 2 miles in the morning, up and down hills in our neighborhood, then another 1-1.5 miles in the afternoon, then a few other shorter walks throughout the day.”
