Recently adopted Laddie, an 11-year-old senior whose owner had passed away found his new home to be one that would save his life. While in foster care Laddie sometimes favored his right front leg, but the vet felt it was just due to arthritis. Shortly after being adopted, the limp got much worse. X-rays and testing indicated cancer and it was decided amputation was necessary.
Laddie came through surgery like a champ and is adjusting to his new normal. There are several updates on our Facebook page.
We at MWCR are very grateful that, even so soon after adopting him, his new mom is so dedicated to his care – we all know it doesn’t take long to fall in love! We are also thankful to have such a wonderful group of supporters and collie lovers that allow us to help with his care.
