Petey was just a few months old and had already been though a lot in his short life. 'Bad break' is more than just a cute term here since he really did break his rear leg. Accidents often happen to young pups as they play and rough house while becoming part of a family. Sadly, one accident for Petey led to him being brought a local vet to be euthanized due to a femoral (hind leg) fracture.
The surgery is costly, the time to heal can be several weeks and inconvenient for a family to deal with – but none is a reason to put this baby bulldog down. Lucky for Petey, Dr. Reed, a radiologist that is familiar with Southern California Bulldog Rescue, happened to be at the vet hospital on that day and spoke up to save this little guys life. The puppy was surrendered by the owners to SoCal Bulldog Rescue, who then created a PoundWishes campaign for him. PoundWishes was able to help raise $2,223 of his $2,000 goal!
Petey is still in foster care recovering from surgery and will be available for adoption soon!
