Shakespeare - the shepherd with a broken leg

Shakespeare was found with a badly broken leg and wondering the streets alone. We took him to the vets and the x-ray showed severely broken leg, which needed to be operated. Because of the severity, the surgery was difficult and expensive, so we had to also consider amputating the leg. That is always a difficult decision with a big dog and since the prognosis for recovery were extremely optimistic, we decided to give him a chance to have full mobility on his leg.

Right now he is recovering from the surgery and so far everything seems to go well! We will keep our fingers crossed that by summer time he will be running with no difficulties.
