Before he would hurt his amputated front leg on every walk – especially in the winter. He would break open skin, get an infection, and re-open the injury to start the cycle again. He would avoid certain outdoor landmarks and hold back. We have not had an injury since July 2007 and you should see him leap and play now.
Archie is a rescue from Louisiana. He was displaced after the Katrina hurricane and injured by other dogs while he was in an over-crowded shelter.
I work in dog rescue and the shelter asked us to take him. He came to us so timid and scared he hid under my bed for a month. It was a major ordeal everyday to get him outside to use the facilities. It took him over six months to start coming out of his shell. He stole my heart and I adopted him.
