It appears that Rudolph was not hit by a car as was first believed, he was ENTRAPPED for several hours to days. All of the tissue damage was from pressure and something very tight encircling his back leg. The soft tissue of his back leg and foot is in pretty bad shape. We sedated him and got x-rays to look at the hip, leg and foot for fractures. God only knows how long this sweet baby stuggled to free himself before he was able to hobble to relative safety.
Update: Had to put baby boy in a “cone of shame” to try and keep his mouth away from his wounds. He loves all the attention. He had a little stand off with a male dog in an adjacent run this afternoon, while he was getting some personal time. We had heard that he didn’t get along with other males. Time will tell, it could have been stress and the gate separating them.
Update: Rudolph is now putting full weight on his hind leg and the wounds are healing nicely. He will be neutered once his leg is fully healed.
