This handsome guy is Tux, because he looks like he’s wearing a tuxedo. Tux is a 9 month old, Lab Mix.
When Tux was only a couple of months old, a little boy broke his left front leg. The fracture wasn’t repaired and didn’t heal correctly, so Tux has a bad limp.
My son brought him home and I took him to the vet to see if it could be fixed. I was told that Tux will need surgery. The surgeon will have to “re-break” the leg and then stabilize it with a plate or pin so that the bone can heal properly. Unfortunately, the surgery is expensive. It will cost about $2500.00 for the surgery, and then about $200 more for the follow up appointment.
Tux is a very sweet dog and very loveable. He didn’t deserve to have this happen to him.
