Ivo: a victim of human indifference

Information:

Name: Ivo

Gender: M

Age: d-o-b: ~2016

Size: medium-big (20kg, 50cm)

Others: dewormed, vaccinated, castrated

Story:
Ivo appeared on the street with an open fracture of his leg. The bone was clearly visible. He was being seen by people but everyone ignored. A few days passed and Ivo appeared without the leg… Someone finally made a half hearted effort to help him, but they did not take him to the vet, they took him to a shelter. (In the vet they would have to pay!). They said that the dog “lost his leg”. Well he did not loose it! He had an open fracture and he was bothered by it, so he chewed his leg off! Miracle that he survived!

From the shelter he was taken to the vet where he was operated and recovered. He very quickly learnt to walk, run and jump on three legs.
But it is a shame that people were so indifferent to his suffering, if someone had reacted quicker he would have probably kept his leg.

And now he is here, back to the shelter. Managing very well on three legs. He is a lovely dog. Very friendly with people, super social with other dogs. Very gentle! Even when he was in pain he allowed people to treat him.

Will someone offer him a home? He has suffered enough.
