Cowboy's Journey to Colorado
Cowboy came into a high kill shelter in Missouri last month as a stray. He was only 6 months old, still a baby.
The shelter contacted us to help, letting us know he didn't stand a chance for adoption due to a problem with his hips and back leg.
He wouldn't put any weight on one of his back legs and x-rays revealed he had a broken pelvis bone, possibly from being hit by a car, and would need an FHO in order to have a normal life.
RMLR committed to bringing Cowboy into our rescue, injury and all, knowing that he would get the surgery and the love and attention he needed in Colorado.
We are happy to report that his first surgery went very well last week and he is on his way to recovery, with several months of physical therapy.
RMLR couldn't help with special dogs like Cowboy without the help of our fosters, volunteers, and the community.
Thank you for your support!
