When an animal rescue named PetPromise found Casper, the canine had deformed toes and was in a severe condition, the Dog Given A Second Chance At Life. He managed to survive thanks to the organization.
In Kentucky’s desolate area is where they found Casper, a Great Pyrenees, his sister Rowan. Someone informed the local animal rescue about the dogs’ terrible condition, and a rescue team picked up the dogs. The rescue team found the canines and took them to a vet for immediate treatment.
PetPromise wrote on their social media page, “One of our incredible volunteers drove to Cincinnati to pick up Casper and his sister Rowan. The volunteer noticed the dogs wholly infested with ticks head to toe.
The volunteers rushed the animals to the local veterinary facility called Rascal Animal Hospital. The veterinarians immediately went to work on them.
The veterinarians treaded both dogs treated for ticks. Infested with ticks, they shaved down Rowan. They also vaccinated both pups.
The organization took x-rays of Casper’s paw. The results proved that Casper was born with a deformity in his toes, making it difficult for him to walk and balance himself. The pup also had stress fractures in his limbs because of improper balance.
Casper gets a prosthetic.
Casper’s deformity left the organization with two options. One was to get his leg amputated, and the other was to have surgery on his foot to remove the deformed toes and fit a prosthetic foot. As prosthetics seemed to be a better and reliable option, the organization chose just that for Casper.
Rowan was later adopted by a staff member at the Rascal hospital, while Casper had to be fostered though he didn’t have to wait for long. The pooch was able to find a forever home without much delay.
