A young dog found emaciated with broken legs received Christmas gifts. His injuries have healed and he found a forever home.
Robinson, a hound mix, was found on the street this fall. He was going to be euthanized at the Levy County Animal Shelter before rescue groups stepped up.
Friends of Levy County’s Homeless Pets and PAWS Rescue Group in Seminole saved Robinson. Two of his legs were broken, having been hit by a car or blunt object. He underwent emergency surgery at Veterinary Surgical Services in Tampa. His fractures were repaired and his worst leg was spared amputation – just in time for Christmas
“Robinson’s story touched the hearts of thousands. The outpouring of support for him has been incredible,” PAWS owner and founder Barbara Hastings said.
Robinson’s foster mom is adopting him. His mom, Inga Martinez, was on the team that rescued the young dog.
The sweet pup has even bonded with his new sister, Mila. Mila, a three-legged pit mix, was also rescued from a high-kill shelter.
“They are truly BFFs and inseparable,” foster mom Inga Martinez said. “Mila is teaching Robinson how to be a dog. She never let her history (or the) loss of her leg interfere with her life -she is an inspiration for Robinson.”
