Bruno’s foot saved

On 08 Aug 2015, after we’d already closed, a sad, sorry boy was brought to us; fortunately, two volunteers were still doing their rounds and arrived at the containers just in time! 

Bruno had just arrived home with blood gushing out of his foot. The neighbour did a sterling job of bandaging it up but all four paws were red with blood because of the sheer volume pouring out. We rushed him to the vet.

Diagnosis: he’d cut his foot on something sharp and sliced open an artery. We were very worried he also cut his tendon. 🙁 The poor dog was so scared and in pain.

BrunoFoot2He stayed at the TAH Bellville for a week and, on 15 August, Bruno went home! His foot is so much better and he is walking well – even putting weight on the leg! 🙂

We tried to get a pic of the happy reunion but he couldn’t get away from us fast enough, hehe – probably thought we’d squish him back into the crate if he didn’t make tracks!

BrunoFoot3We also placed a lovely new kennel for him (thank you, Dog Box Project!) with a warm blankie.

Needless to say, he was VERY happy to be at home – and his owner was very happy to see him.

Thank you SO much to Samuel Mdluli, who works at the Fisantekraal Library and also keeps an eye out for the dogs, for helping Bruno.
