Davis reached out to Parker Paws for their help, which agreed to take on Trooper, named for his endurance an attitude through the ordeal.
Trooper had surgery Tuesday morning in Fort Worth to amputate the leg, which had digressed after getting infected, and was picked up Wednesday afternoon to begin rehabilitation. In the meantime, Parker Paws is in the process of taking in the other three puppies for vaccinations before placing them for fostering and adoption.
“We try to keep things conservative by not taking in more animals than we can afford,” Parker Paws director Barbara Pursley said. “We also want to make sure we have foster homes available for each animal.”
Parker Paws is now reaching out to the public for help covering the cost of the surgery.
“We’re trying to raise additional funds and we’ve already had one monetary donations,” Christine Birkbeck, vice president of marketing, said.
