With his jaw broken in two, this beautiful boy seemed to plead to his rescuers to help him. He couldn’t close or move his jaw, and his face showed utter bewilderment. But he shyly turned on his back in an act of pure submission, his tail wagging as if asking for help to stop the pain.
When we sedated him and saw the full extent of the fractures in his jaw, we were truly worried that we might not be able to save him. But we tried our best. To our delight, he responded extremely well to the sutures, and was ready to start eating (on a liquid diet) by day 3.
From then, we knew this incredibly sweet boy was going to thrive. Meet Apollo now!
