ADOPTED: Lil’ Stanley Needs a Furever Home
Hello, I’m Lil’ Stanley, a wee little puppy (7 pounds) that will be looking for my new “furever” family. I was a recent shelter pup, but I’m now the latest addition to the LSWR family. I am so thankful a volunteer came to retrieve me from the shelter! I was scared, lonely and hurt. I am estimated to be about 6 months old and in great health with the exception of my bum, rear leg. While I can’t tell my dog-tor what happened to me, she believes I was hit by a car sometime ago and most likely I was not taken to a dog-tor at the time of my injury. The bones on my leg did not heal properly, and as a result, I experience pain when putting weight on it.
I can’t use that leg very well and I visited an orthopedic specialist to see if I can keep my leg. It would be great if I could but the injury is beyond repair and my leg will have to be amputated. I can tell you I am not letting this injury get in my way as I get around just fine with my 3 legs!
I just love life, enjoy being cuddled and giving hugs to humans. The entire staff at the vet’s office all fell in love with me. Really, they said I was the coolest perfect puppy ever, and they should know as they see lots of puppies. They spoiled and loved on me a lot. They made a big fuss saying good-bye when I left to go to my foster home. They said to come back after my surgery and they’d puppy sit me while I recuperate.
My surgery to remove my leg will be Tuesday 4/22. I might need a little time to physically heal but once that’s behind me, I will be ready to get on with my life and be loved by my “fur”ever family. The volunteers are looking for a very special home for me. Can you make room in home and your heart for me? Just ask for lil’ Stanley. I promise, I will fill your days and heart with love, hugs & kisses.
Puppy kisses to everyone!
