Yoda, in his 8+ months on this planet, he has clearly didn't have a charmed life. He was on the highway in the desert (Indio) when he was struck by a car. He was about to be hit by another when a witness came to his rescue.
Sadly she did not know the extent of his injuries but knew he needed vet care, and could not afford it, so she took him to the shelter.
Thankfully, a TAPS member was at the Indio shelter (to check on the dogs rescued from the 'Desert Dog Death Camp') and brought Yoda back to LA. After being seen by 2 vets it was determined that his back leg needed to be amputated.
Thanks to a generous donation by Lifeline4Paws, a program of the Hogan Family Foundation, Yoda was able to get the life-saving surgery he needed!
He had his leg removed last week, his staples removed today and is doing fantastic. He was in so much pain he actually feels better with the injured leg removed.
He is 9 lbs of PURE SWEETNESS, completely potty trained, crate trained, is good with kids, cats and other dogs and is just looking for a cozy lap to cuddle up on.
If you are interested in adopting Yoda or are interested in pitching in a few bucks to help us pay off his remaining vet bills, please donate via paypal (at left) or email:
