1/23/23 – On January 18 we were contacted by friends of 4p1h whom we’ve assisted in the past. They said that they had found a “sweet pittie” running around the Hamtramck Detroit border on January 17. They said he was posted all over facebook and that he had been running with a very bad limp for over a week, in and out of traffic, and hanging around a park. The rescuers were able to secure him and said that he definitely had something going on with his hips and legs. Nothing looked broken but he appeared to be in pain. – diana
“He may been bumped by a car. We are searching for rescue placement and hope to find one soon. Right now he’s comfortable as he can be in a room in my house. I was wondering if there is anyway you can help with getting him vetted. He really needs his back end to be checked out, shots, microchip if possible, heartworm test and neuter. He’s a black male pittie. Younger about 2 years maybe. Please let me know if you can help. Thank you so much! I will attach pictures. Thank you so much for helping us out the last time . Hope to hear from you soon. The video of him walhe had been running with a very bad limp for over a week in and out of traffic and hanging around a park. Robin and I were able to secure him last night. He definitely has something going on with his hips and legs. Nothing looks broke but he is in pain. They thought he might have been bumped by a car. The rescuers were going to search for rescue placement but in the mean time, needed our help.”
Maximus was seen by one of our partner vets and his leg was x-rayed but no breaks or fractures were found. The doctor agreed that he has a “weird walk and sits funny” but they could not see any specific reason. Maximus was found to be negative for heart worm and received the necessary vaccines. He will be neutered and then go off to his new rescue, Paws, Awes, and Claws. They will keep a close eye on him and follow up with any issues concerning his leg or continue to be in contact with us in that we have worked with them with other rescues. – diana.
