This is a little different type of pet for the Pet of the Week feature. Vlad, soon to be renamed, was brought into a Washington animal shelter with some serious health issues. Motley Zoo Animal Rescue of Redmond scooped him up and have committed to bringing him back to health.
Vlad is a darling Pomeranian mix and about 7 years old. It is easy to have your heart melt over him, even before you hear his story.
Notes From his Motley Zoo Foster Home
Vlad had an old injury on his front leg that healed incorrectly. It was causing so much pain that the vet recommended amputation. Most likely, it was broken and then healed badly.
