LB Acquires 3 wires, 2 plates, and 10 screws!

Contributed by CP's VP of Intakes

LB has had his surgery to repair a badly broken leg!!!

After yesterday's gigantic scare, we are VERY happy to report that little LB had a successful surgery this morning to repair his left rear leg which was fractured in 4 places.  A totally different approach was taken with anesthesia this morning and there were absolutely no issues today.  The orthopedic surgery went very well and the leg went back together cleanly with the help of 3 wires, 2 plates and 10 screws!

LB will be monitored closely today and - if all goes well – he could be heading to his foster home with Ken G. as early as tomorrow for the long rehab and therapy period that will be needed to insure proper healing of his leg.  Little LB has been a wonderful ambassador for Col. Potter at the specialty clinic, wagging his tail and giving sweet little kisses to everyone - as if he knows they are all there to help him!

LB has made it over the major hurdle of the surgery, but his medical bills will be ongoing through rehab and therapy.  At this time of great Thanks and Giving, from the heart, we hope you will consider helping with LB's medical expenses.

All donations should include a note to help LB and should be sent to:
