I am back to share my good news. My name is Max and I am the latest Lauren’s Wing recipient. I am 6 years old and 75 pounds of maximum energy and curiosity! Unfortunately, that curiosity got the best of me one day and I decided to go exploring all on my own. While making a run across the road, a car hit me breaking both of my front legs and injuring my paw. Unfortunately, my owners were unable to provide the medical care I needed, but they lovingly surrendered me to Action for Animals so I could have a chance at survival. The veterinarians at AFA examined my injuries and made temporary splints for my legs. Arrangements were made for a trip to Ohio State University so I could undergo orthopedic surgery. A pin and plate were placed in my right leg. My broken left leg with the injured paw was wrapped in a splint in hopes it will mend with proper rest. I am now back at Action for Animals and am doing the best I can with the “resting” part, but it sure isn’t easy for a fellow like me with so much love and enthusiasm to share. In spite of all the trauma I have been through the last month, I still enthusiastically greet everyone with my tail wagging and a kiss. I am counting the days till my special collar comes off. If you notice the duct tape, it is not for decoration. I love trying to get my collar off, but the loving staff at AFA keeps fixing it and reminding me stay calm and be patient. My prognosis is good, so when I finish my healing, I would love to meet some new friends and find a forever home!
Thank you to everyone who is looking after me, and to all my new friends who generously support Lauren’s Wing – The Fund for Animal Care. XOXO Max
