Lincoln gets along well on three legs and is thriving in his foster home. He runs and plays with the other dogs living there and does not realize he is a little different from them. After a good day of play, Lincoln still enjoys cuddling with his foster parents. He is very sweet with children and is most gentle with small dogs.
Now that he is a mature dog, 18 months old, he has become swaybacked and his remaining back leg has bowed. He was taken to his vet recently who recommended that he should be examined by an orthopedic surgeon. Lincolnís growth plate was damaged because he was merely a puppy at the time of his original injury. His tibia is out of alignment and he will need a steel rod implanted to straighten and strengthen the leg. His post-operative recovery will be about 12 weeks with numerous follow-up visits with the specialist. Lincoln weighs about 70 pounds and the surgery is now mandatory due to the possibility of tearing his ACL which would require even more extensive surgery.
He is one of so many innocent and special souls that requires your help to finally lead a quality life in a loving, caring home. All he needs now is your participation in his recovery by sending a monetary gift. Your reward will be knowing you played a role in this life-giving surgery. Together, we can make a difference in Lincolnís life.
