ElliotDoberman Pinscher (short coat) • Male • Young • Large
Our sweet Elliot is an amazing boy who has been through a horribly tough time. Elliot came to us from BARC during operation shelter pull. He had a slight limp but it did not seem to be anything too bad. He was seen by our vets but referred to Gulf Coast for additional testing. The news did not seem too bad, bacterial infection, but in his joint. We started with heavy duty antibiotics but they did not touch it. The bones connected to his knee were being eaten away and we could not stop it. We were terrified that it would spread so we made the decision to amputate his leg. Elliot is doing just fine as a tripod. He is able to move around and keep a nice pace on walks. He would love to get off leash so he could lizard hunt again, but that will come when all stitches and staples are removed. If you would like to adopt this incredibly sweet natured, beautiful boy fill out our adoption application at www.scoutshonor.org or email email@example.com with any questions.
