And he was unable to walk and extremely scrawny, again, and your love continues to be there for him as he every rib showing, with weeping sores covering his body. heals. Thank you for being his angel! When our vet examined Walker, she confirmed that not one, but both of Walker’s rear legs were painfully broken. X-rays showed the details: One of his thigh bones was split in two, and the head of a lower leg bone in the other leg was smashed. Only Walker knows what happened. We can only assume at some point he endured a terrible trauma that left his body shattered and in tremendous pain. Even still, Walker only wants to put his head in your lap for some love. But while Walker’s situation is heartbreaking, it isn’t hopeless. Thanks to you, he was able to have surgery at a specialist to fuse his broken thigh bone with a plate and to repair his shattered bone in the other leg. And, thanks to you, he has time to heal, though he may need another surgery in time. 2 HUMANE SOCIETY OF NORTHEAST GEORGIA Inside Spread
