This handsome Shepherd came in as a stray to the county shelter with an obvious leg injury. Bronson does not bear weight on his left, front leg and xrays at the shelter showed a severe fracture.
Bronson needed a rescue outlet and full service vet asap! Luckily, one of our amazing foster families stepped up for this guy and he is now safe with M.A.I.N!
Bronson’s xrays at our vet show some suspicious lesions in addition to the leg fracture; we will be testing him for Valley Fever as well as our normal bloodwork panel.
Unfortunately, due to the severity of the break in his leg, we suspect Bronson’s leg will need to be amputated…
For now, Bronson is being kept comfortable with pain medicine and is doing well. Everyone that meets him remarks on what a great, happy dog he is!

Bronson’s Adoptapet Bio: Bronson at your service! Can’t tell you why, but I’ve always been a happy-go-lucky kinda guy, even when life throws me curve balls. And boy did it throw me a whopper this year. I got hurt (can’t remember how) pretty bad. So bad that now I’m a tri-pod. But if it hadn’t been for my bum leg, I never would have met the best humans in the world from M.A.I.N. They took me in, gave me shelter and love and got me all back to good. I know I’ve only got three legs to stand on but, honestly it hasn’t slowed me down. I’m telling you, life is very good right now. I’m free from pain and living with a wonderful foster. And guess what, I have a foster brother here too. His name is Sully and he’s turned into a great pal. We go for walks (yeah, of course on a leash), take car rides and hang out. I’m really, really good in the house – no messes ever. I do love my humans though. They are so interesting. I love to follow them around (just to make sure they are OK, of course) and keep them safe. I do admit, I’m not quite used to my size. I’m a big boy locked in a small dog body, so I love to cuddle with my buddy Sully and our humans. I am learning how to control myself and my foster and I are working on my manners (sit, stay, down). It may take me a while as I’m still young, but I’m getting the hang of it. So if you are looking for a pup with a big heart and three legs, I’m definitely your guy. I love life and I know I will love my forever family just as much. Can’t wait to meet you.
Bronson Update: Bronson is a love! He’s a gentle giant who enjoys meeting new people and playing with other dogs. Everyone that meets Bronson remarks on what a great, happy dog he is.
