Saving Ludo's Leg

On Thursday, June 7th, I found a dog struck by a car in an eastbound lane of Highway 30 in central Iowa.  He was struggling to drag himself out of the road but was, when I found him, a sitting duck for oncoming traffic.  I had been traveling westbound but managed to turn around quickly and block traffic to protect him.  Despite having significant injuries, this dog drank water from my cup, tried to wag his tail and was appreciative of help- not angry, barking or biting.  The Tama County sheriff told another group who stopped to help that he could not help transport the dog but could put him out of his pain.  However, with help, I got him loaded in my car and to the closest vet.  Ludo has a splintered leg and hairline pelvis fracture and because of the cost to treat, the former owners (who called him Bandit) decided not to. The cost to plate his leg is high, but I've rarely met a dog so deserving of a second chance.  He is having surgery this week and will come home with me post-recovery, to his new forever home. Paying for his treatment is a choice I made along with the decision to adopt him.  However, any help with his surgery would be very much appreciated as it was not a budgeted expense or planned event, just a miracle of timing for a gentle, lucky dog. Thank you.

Surgery day is today! Thank you so much to all who helped yesterday; I am humbled and indebted. I'll pay you back somehow, someday. We've reached the halfway mark of the plating surgery cost. Anyone still interested in Operation Rescue Ludo's Leg, I'm so grateful for your help. Thank you.
