When the owners noiced the needed medical attention, he was turned over to the Coastal German Shepherd Rescue OC for help.

Vets had to amputate the dogs hind leg and now he is in training and doing fine — happy as ever! A San Diego family has now adopted the pup (and now the Animal Control Department is further investigating the case).
