Now that Muniowski had Bobby’s trust, he scooped her up and held her close. Then the couple rode back into town so they could get Bobby to a vet as quickly as possible.
Bobby was skinny and filthy, but they were more concerned about her back legs, which both appeared broken. In fact, one of Bobby’s back paws seemed to be “hanging … from a single thread,” according to Muniowski.
The vet thought Bobby might have gotten hit by a car, or caught inside a hunting trap, and that she’d probably been running around with her injuries for three or four weeks. But Bobby was so injured, the vet wasn’t sure what kind of quality of life she’d have — especially since she didn’t have a family.
