Carpaccio was found injured, likely hit by a car. The person who picked him up took him to a vet in a nearby town for treatment, and the veterinarian amputated his foreleg. The person never returned to pick up the puppy, and several weeks later, friends saw him at the clinic and took him home with them.

Unfortunately, the amputation was  performed incorrectly and Carpaccio will need a second amputation to shorten the tump that was left, as it is too long and he opens it up trying to use the limb. He is not a candidate for a prothesis.

Carpaccio is scheduled for this surgery the first week of February, and will be available for adoption once recovered.

He is an extremely sweet, gentle and friendly pup. He is about 4 months old, and he absolutely adores people and other dogs. In spite of his injury he plays hard and runs and keeps up with the other pups just fine. He will make a great companion for a lucky adopter.
