    WTF he crawls back to his owners and they toss him aside to the shelter? WTF WTF I`m not much of an animal person but that is just shallow. What if it was their kid? "Sorry, kid, can`t take care of you because the storm that broke you legs made a mess of the house you crawled back to be you."

    Well, I kind of understand about giving it to the shelter though. Their homes and everything were just destroyed and can barely even afford anything. Trying to care correctly for a dog with two broken legs would be extremely difficult and it would probably just be miserable :c

    Yeah lots or dogs got given to shelters that lost owners, or whose owners lots their homes and are broke.

    I`m from Birmingham if you couldn`t tell. To put in perspective what`s going on around here, you know the Joplin tornado that happened a few days ago? We that happened to us, just on a statewide scale. 30,000-40,000 homes and businesses destroyed, 300 people dead, 5,000 injuries, dogs and cats, living together. Mass hysteria.

    I don`t understand. If his legs are still broken, why are they letting him walk around on them? Surely he needs an operation?

    I`m riding the WTF train with Edana. And why isn`t he in a cast or something? And what was with that vet flopping his broken leg around?

    His owners didn`t even check if he was ok for 2 weeks? If I lost my dog in the storm I would have spent every day looking for him, even if I had lost my house like they did.
    And really? He crawls back to your house on broken legs looking for you, wanting to see you again, and you put him in the pound? Douche. He wouldn`t have put you in the pound.

    Let me get this straight:
    Dog gets whisked away in tornado.
    Dog Survives.
    Dog crawls on broken legs to return to his family who he loved so dearly.
    Family gives dog away.

    Owners of the year. Really.

    I don`t understand why they`re not trying to correct his broken legs? Is there no hope?

    When my pup chihuahau snapped her right leg bones, it cost us over 1500$ for splints and surgery and after care.

    This lovely doggie was brought to the shelter cause the owners know they can`t afford all medical i think they did the right thing by not abandoning him. (Though my heart winced when i saw his dangling legs...i would of never let him walk at all...why did they not splint for the time being?!?!)

    Anyways, seems like the shelter found a vet that operated for free and re-attached his broken bones. His owners will get to keep him after all.

    Though i still can`t get over those people just looking at his dangling front legs or letting him try to walk on them....that`s just unbelieveable.

    Here`s the story of him in newspaper.

    Dogs are always happy no matter what ailments befall them.

    Missing a leg? No Problem bark bark pant pant lick lick. 2 legs? OK! 3? whatever I`m alive how about a treat? 4 legs? Pshhhh nothing!

    Humans could learn something from our canine friends. A man breaks a finger--and YES that sucks; could ruin his work abilities etc.--but the majority relish in the pity. Not all of course... there are some amazing human triumphs!

    But dogs... nothing seems to get them down. Always happy to be alive and have friends who love them. We could learn a lot from a dumb animal (dumb meaning they can`t speak of course).

    Dog`s rule. Hell, they rock and rule.
