This dog, who was given the nickname Ben, was found as a two-month-old puppy. He lay on the railroad tracks with a crushed paw. The veterinarians removed the paw, but a year later problems began with the hind legs, which simply began to fail.
Veterinarians have not been able to find a cause, but suggest that the problem is a genetic predisposition due to which the dog’s bones are too soft. Ben underwent a long course of treatment, but his paws remained twisted, and his gait seemed to squat.
For 8 years, we did not succeed in finding a family for Ben, although the volunteers made every effort to do this. The dog is a real handsome man, but due to health problems, no one wants to take him for himself.
It is difficult to describe how painful it is to see how animals stay in a shelter for years, grow old, their eyes fade away without love and affection.
Ben has many more years ahead of him. It will not be a problem for residents of the private sector. The dog is affectionate and beautiful and all he needs is food and a feeling of love and care from a person.
