Roscoe is a 75 pound shepherd/husky mix located in Maryland. Minutes before Roscoe was to be put to sleep I received an urgent phone call from the local vet office, hoping we could help Roscoe. Roscoe had been hit by a car and shattered his back left leg. After having several surgeries on his leg, his after care proved to be too much for his family, and their vet suggested amputation. They conceded they could not longer afford any more medical bills and had him scheduled to be euthanized. When I met Roscoe, I knew immediately he was not ready to leave this earth. I accepted Roscoe, into our program, and with the help of the SPOT, Calvert's Spay and Neuter program, he is back at the hospital getting the support and care he needs. The surgeons believe they can save his leg. Roscoe will spend some weeks here at the rescue getting around the clock care, while his leg is o the mend. Roscoe was a family pet for many years, and I believe will have years of happiness and health, with a new family. Roscoe lived with other dogs and children, but probably a home without cats would be best. Roscoe, will be ready for adoption after his leg has totally healed. We are accepting applications. please visit http://www.petswithdisabiltiies.org/ for adoption information.
