The is seeking information about how a puppy with a broken leg was left alone on Chichatawbut Road on the Fourth of July. The Animal League is also reaching out to the public to help fund his $5,000 emergency surgery.
“This little guy is only five to six months old and has a sweet and loving personality,” said Animal Control Officer Nancy Bersani in a release from the MAL. “He deserves every chance and we intend to give him that chance.”
On July 4th, Bersani was called to the State Police barracks in the Blue Hills. A Good Samaritan had stopped to pick up an injured dog that was limping in the middle of Chickatawbut Road.
Despite his severely injured back leg, the pup greeted the Massachusetts State Troopers on the scene with kisses, according to the release. In honor of the police that protected him, the puppy has been named Trooper.
“Dr. Joseph from Canton Veterinary Hospital stabilized the leg and gave him much needed pain meds,” Bersani said. “The x-rays the next morning showed an awful break and it was near the growth plate so surgery could not wait.”
Trooper received much needed surgery at Tufts Emergency Center on Friday.
Donations to help with Trooper’s surgery and rehabilitation can be sent to Milton Animal League 181 Governor Stoughton Lane Milton, MA 02186.
“Please help us help Trooper. Thank You,” Bersani said.
