Shepherds are amazing and loyal companions and Champion (Champ) is no exception. He sat at the shelter with a broken scapula and although in excruciating pain it never altered his amazingly sweet personality. Champ had been picked up as a stray by Kern County Animal Services. They have no idea how he was injured but we suspect he’d been hit by a car. We scheduled an appointment with a specialist but Champ was lucky and the specialist did not recommend surgery but instead continued crate rest and slow walks to aide in his recovery.
Champ is now fully healed and ready for adoption. He will always walk with a bit of a hitch to his step but it doesn’t hinder his mobility or negatively impact his quality of life. Champ is a super sweet dog and great with people of all ages. He is not good with other animals and very reactive when he sees them. He’ll need to be the only animal in his future adoptive home.
