When our rural Colorado shelter partner asked us to help with six-month-old Charlie, we didn’t hesitate. They told us he was found as a collarless stray, “abandoned in an area that people often leave dogs to die”. His vet exam and x-rays showed this beautiful, vivacious puppy had severe bilateral hip dysplasia that would become increasingly crippling.
Charlie, who is being cared for by one of our medical fosters, will have hip replacement surgery at Colorado Canine Orthopedics. Once recovered and with two new hips, this delightful puppy will be able to live an active pain free life with a loving forever family.
