Several rescue organizations shared images of this puppy online. The woman who spotted him simply took a photo and shared it on Facebook.
The dog belongs to the amstaff breed. He can only stand because he is immobile. What happened to him remains unknown. He might have been shot earlier because he was found in a wooded area.
Despite his condition, his tail never stops wagging because he is such a sweetheart. He may have been abandoned in this condition by his previous owner, as evidenced by his cropped ears.
His name is Alphonzo. X-rays confirm that it is a tumor, as suspected. He is in excruciating pain, has a badly deformed leg, and a foul odor emanates from the tumor.
Further examinations, blood tests, a chest x-ray, and a CT scan will be performed to check for metastases. He will definitely need to have a limb amputated.
He never stops wagging his tail and giving everyone kisses. His strong appetite is a positive sign.
A chest x-ray was performed, but the results showed no metastases. He had his leg amputated, and he is hooked up to an IV. Blood tests indicate that he is anemic, yet we cannot wait another day; we must amputate the limb right away.
He was saved after a grueling, all-night procedure that involved the removal of a 6-kg tumor and the amputation of his front leg.
Four days after leaving the facility, Alphonzo is healthy. He will thrive because he is a fighter! Although he is anemic, a balanced diet and supplements can treat it. Veterinary nurse Merima is privately raising him.
He overcame a difficult treatment and will have a regular, content life! He longs to find someone who will value him as much as their own self-worth.
One month later, Alphonzo is doing fantastic, his injury is healing perfectly, and there are no issues. He is adorable, enjoys spending time with people, children, dogs, and cats.
He will be close to a year old when the free spaying and neutering program resumes.
I truly hope that this pup finds a loving home. He is incredibly appreciative of your help and the wonderful care Meri and Franjo are giving him.
