Brooklyn - A Broken Leg, His Time Running Out



The latest animal in need to come through our doors is Brooklyn, a 3 year old pit bull that really needed our help. Brooklyn was spotted on the internet as "super urgent". This young and happy boy was the victim of a hit and run from what we can surmise. He has a severely broken front leg, abrasions and bruising on his belly, and broken teeth. He was found limping around New York, with no collar or tags. How someone let this sweet boy get in this position is beyond us. After his three day hold was up, Brooklyn would have been on the "to be destroyed" list, so we had to give him a chance.

Brooklyn came bopping through our doors with a big smile on his face and a tail that never stops wagging. His leg has been splinted for now and he is much more comfortable. He gets around very well, so we have to wonder how long he was suffering with this break before he was found. Since the break is quite severe and the bones have broken straight through, Brooklyn will need surgical repair as it will not heal with just the splint. Dr. Steven Cudia will be performing the surgery in the next week or so and Brooklyn is anxious to get back in action. He is a happy and energetic pup that is not letting this get him down. Brooklyn is on "bed rest", but when he takes his daily short walks, he loves greeting all of his new friends and checking out his new surroundings. He gives a puppy whine whenever he spots another dog or one of our resident peacocks, and he can hardly contain his excitement when you approach him with a treat. When Brooklyn is all healed up and ready to go, he will be such a loving and loyal pet for some lucky family.

Your donations to our Res-Q Fund is what helps Evan, Cookie, Lucas, Brooklyn -- and so many more. All they need is a little extra help in their life -- and we can give it to them -- thanks to your generosity.

Brooklyn will be interviewing potential families just as soon as he is fully recovered, so please keep him in mind, and please stay tuned for more from our new friend Brooklyn. For more information, call AHS in Forked River at 609-693-1900 or e-mail us.
