Harvey, a sweet chocolate lab about 9-10 months old, came to us from the Winslow Humane Society. The vets there assumed his hip was broken but didn't take any x-rays. When ALGBR stepped in to help this boy, we got him in for x-rays immediately. What we found made our hearts sink. In addition to an old pelvis fracture, his femur was broken where it attached to the ball. The ball of the femur was still in the socket, but to relieve Harvey's pain, he required FTO surgery (Femoral Head Ostectomy).
Because of the generous donations we received, Harvey was able to have his surgery! We're excited that this sweet boy is now on the road to recovery.
Harvey will be in foster for several weeks post-op but will be ready for adoption after that. He's going to be a great family dog and is already crate trained, housebroken, good with dogs, goats, and people! We're not sure about cats yet, but we'll learn more as we care for him in recovery.
Please contact your home visit volunteer if you'd like to meet Harvey.
All ALGBR dogs have had a basic vet check, vaccinations, are heartworm tested, and microchipped.
