River is the happiest dog you will ever meet despite the cruelty he has suffered at the hands of humans. He was found abandoned in Oklahoma after being shot, with bullet fragments lodged into his left front leg causing extentive damage to the joint. Every effort was made to save his leg, but the injury was causing him pain that could not be controlled with medication. River wanted to badly to be able to run & play, but his leg would not allow him to enjoy life as he needed to. The decision was made to amputate his wounded limb and allow for him to look forward to a pain-free life and give him the ability to enjoy all the playtime he could ever hope for. River is asking for your help by being a sponsor in his medical care & recovery. Please show him that not all humans are bad and that he is worthy of the love & TLC being shown him by Dolly's Legacy Animal Rescue.
