If you only knew what little Mut has gone through, you would wonder how he could still be smiling.
This 2 year old jack russell/pointer mix was given up recently by his family because they were moving and couldn't take him along. As if that weren't bad enough, little Mut came with some other issues that his family neglected to mention ….
Little Mut had a bit of a limp in his back end when he arrived that we hoped was just something minor. When his walking did not improve after a few days, x-rays were taken and revealed the source of Mut's discomfort- a broken hip. We'll never know just how Mut came to be in this condition but at least now, he will get the help he needs. He has yet another obstacle to overcome before his hip could be repaired though ….. Mut also had pneumonia. This little guy just can't win! Mut has been receiving treatment for his pneumonia for several weeks now and finally, he's showing signs of improvement. Once he receives his clean bill of health, an orthopedic surgeon will perform the extensive surgery of repairing his broken hip. At a time when we have so many special needs cases, including Midnight, a cat with the same hip problem, our Res-Q Fund is in definite need of support. If you are able to, please contribute to our Res-Q Fund -- it would help so much with the many orphans that come through our doors.
Through all of this suffering, little Mut has been so incredibly sweet and accepting of all of the medical treatment that he is receiving. He has been on injectable medication for his pneumonia and has been poked and prodded more than he'd care to discuss, but he continues to be his lovable and adorable little self, never complaining and always wagging his tail. It's as if Mut is grateful to be getting the good care that he needs and we are happy to provide him with it and we hope that one day, when his recovery is completed, he will get the wonderful home that he truly deserves. In the meantime, Mut continues to get better and better every day and we are hopeful that his surgery will be in the near future so that he can get on the road to recovery. Please keep little Mut in your thoughts and prayers and we will update again soon on his condition. Flor more information, call Popcorn Park at 609-693-1900 or e-mail us.
