Prince was surrendered to BACC because he became lethargic and has not been able to walk on his own since yesterday. He has neurological deficits in his left hind limb, and needs follow up care at a private veterinarian ASAP! Our vet did not palpate any fractures, Prince still feels pain in his left leg, and his right leg appears to be normal. According to his former owner, Prince has previously lived with children, gets along well with other dogs, and is affectionate, mellow, and playful! Please help Prince get the medical care he needs, and pull him from BACC tonight!
