Murphy Brown arrived into New Hope’s care on December 18, 2021 when he was found by a front line rescuer after being injured by other dogs. He was immediately taken to the Western College of Veterinary Medicine’s Small Animal Clinic. Murphy Brown had several wounds on his right pelvic limb as well as another wound in the inner part of his right thigh. The wounds were extensively flushed, debridement was done, and a bandage was placed.
Murphy Brown was also diagnosed with a fracture of the left pelvic limb (distal femur). This fracture is not healing well and the difficult decision has been made to remove his injured limb. His surgery is scheduled for January 11, 2022 in order to allow his other limb to heal completely first.
Update: January 11, 2022, Murphy Brown had his surgery today and it went very well. They also were able to remove the pellet from his front leg as well.
Final update: January 26, 2022 Murphy Brown was adopted into his loving forever home!
