Artist's Description

This mixed breed pup at age 13 weeks of age had already been given away to several different homes. He was ‘repossessed’ by one of the temporary owners when she found out that he’d sustained a badly fractured leg in the care of the people she’d given him to, and was not receiving medical attention. They brought him to a vet but when they heard that he needed to see an orthopedic surgeon and could expect a quote of $3000-4000 to surgically pin and set his leg, he was surrendered for euthanasia.

The vet clinic persuaded them to surrender pup to the clinic, who would do the surgery and surrender him to rescue. The clinic did the surgery at a reduced rate, and we took over. When we posted him to our site, a few people donated towards his bill. He is doing fabulous, very stoic and already toe-touching the day after surgery. He’s available for adoption and drowning in cuteness, blissfully unaware of how much trouble he was in, and how things are going to change for him now, as we will be making sure his adoptive home is fully prepared for the 15+ year commitment that loving him could be.

Rodney (thanks Dr. Mel for the inventive name – at least she didn’t spell it Rodknee!) is a mixed breed, possible Siberian Husky cross. At 14 weeks old he weighs in at a whopping 6 kilograms! (13 lbs)
