Bruno, the English Setter found with injuries following a run-in with a vehicle on Cedar Road in Abington in July, is ready to be adopted.
The 3-year-old dog sustained a laceration to his leg, had two fractures of his pelvis and a severely fractured leg; he underwent emergency surgery at Veterinary Referral Center in Malvern in July and was then taken to Bucks County VETS for rehabilitation therapy.
“After having both hips and his leg surgically repaired, he came back for rehabilitation,” Russ Diamond, director of administration at Bucks County Emergency VETS, said via email. “He walks great and is learning to run again. He gets along well with other animals and is incredibly affectionate."
Diamond said Bucks County VETS has had several inquiries about adopting Bruno, “but nothing has worked out so far.”
After Bruno was found on Cedar Road, someone claimed him, but Diamond said the owner had just recently adopted the dog, and was unable to pay for the surgery. The owner then signed the dog over to Bucks County Emergency VETS — the alternative would have been euthanizing the dog, Diamond said.
Bucks County Emergency VETS then reached out to VRC in Malvern, where a board-certified surgeon agreed to take care of the dog at a discount.
Bruno is neutered, has all of his shots, and comes with a month’s supply of food. Anyone interested in adopting him should call Bucks County VETS at 215-918-2200.
Bucks County VETS is located at 978 Easton Road in Warrington.
