Franklin the Hit and Run
Driving from Shreveport to Houston, Sunday July 15th, David and I witness a hit and run where a little Schnauzer collided with a Cadillac and didn't win. There were a number of witness, standing nearby, and no one did anything - they just left the little guy on the shoulder of Hwy 59 near Corrigan, TX, not able to walk, and bleeding.
He's still looking for a forever home and still living with the wonderful folks over at the Pawza until we can find a family who will take him into their hearts!
We are all taking a conservative "watch and wait" approach. No big decisions are being made at this point.
His back legs are starting to heal more and more everyday so even if he becomes a tripod he'll be the cutest tripod ever!
His hips are healing nicely and he's able to stand long enough to go to the bathroom on his own and walk around a bit. Those hips will heal just fine!
His right foreleg appears to only have feeling down to his elbow. :( He's going to a premiere vet here in Houston for a consultation on Thursday or Friday to see what they recommend about amputation.
Still no luck tracking down his original owners, we haven't given up hope! We have an ad in the newspaper where the accident happened and hopefully that will generate some leads.
