I've added pictures of what the little guy's paw looked like when he was surrendered. The whole leg was twisted causing the fractures. Sadly, I can only assume that a person did this to the little guy. I can't tell you what it makes me want to do the person who did this.

Here's Doc. He's our latest foster pup. He's about 12 weeks old, and very cute. He has a terrible injury to his leg, although no one knows what happens. The vet isn't sure yet that it can be saved, but she's trying her best. His little paw was completely flipped over, so the pads were facing up. There are several fractures, plus a bad cut. The splint was changed today, so the poor pup isn't feeling great right now.

The little guy doesn't let it stop him though. He goes up & down stairs, and would happily go for walks. He's too little for walking on the street though, so I carry him while Molly walks. At least he gets to look around and sniff the air. He can't really play, so he and Molly are just hanging out right now. He doesn't pester her too much. The problem is, he can't get out of the way of her snaps as quickly because of his leg, so she sometimes makes contact when she does lose patience. Both of them get upset when that happens. He's a good little dog, so we hope he finds a great family soon.

If you look closely at his back paws you can see he has extra toes on both feet. Funny!
