Deuce is an adorable, young, mixed-breed dog who was part of an Animal League International Rescue mission in 2007. At first glance, it was obvious that there was a problem with Deuceâ€™s leg. Deuce has angular limb deformity of his left front leg, which gives the appearance that his leg is turned out. Because of this condition, Deuce will need a series of surgeries over monthâ€™s time to correct these defects and allow him to have a good quality of life. An existing scar on his leg and some missing bone indicates that there was either possible trauma or possibly a previous surgery done to his leg prior to his arrival at the Animal League.
Deuce takes Cosequin, a nutritional supplement to help maintain optimal joint function and needs to keep his weight down so as not to stress his limbs. Deuceâ€™s injury will not affect his life span and certainly has not affected his wonderful temperament. He is a great dog with tons of personality, and we are happy to give him the love and care he needs for as long as he needs it. Deuceâ€™s condition will be life-long. However, through the Animal League’s Sponsor Program, Deuce has found a foster care home, where he will be loved, respected, completely cared for and given the wonderful life he truly deserves. With the help of generous monthly Sponsors like you, he’ll live out the rest of his days as healthy and happy as possible. We hope that you will choose to be his Sponsor Program pet parent â€“ thank you
