Rio

Within hours of his arrival, our shelter staff picked this dog as our next “Make a Difference” animal. Sweet, gentle and eager to please, he captured our hearts.  He had an old injury that made his front leg totally useless and a source of infection. He needed an amputation.  Then there was the news that he was also heartworm positive.  With the support of MAD donors (including Mrs. Potter’s entire 4th grade class from Rio Grande School) and a foster home where he recovered, we were able to do all that was necessary to make him “adoptable.”  He’s now “Roo”, runs like the wind on 3 legs and has a wonderful home in Santa Fe.
