Two animals recently came into a shelter in Kentucky with very uncertain futures.
An 8-month-old puppy now named King was in bad shape, limping because his leg had been broken months earlier and had never been mended. "His left femur was shattered, and X-rays indicated that the leg could not be repaired," Beth Haendiges, a spokesperson for the Kentucky Humane Society (KHS) told The Dodo. "Veterinarians recommended the leg be amputated."
So King underwent surgery with the KHS veterinary team. This week he was recovering in his crate when something very sweet happened.
