Big magnificent Hugo was found badly injured by animal control. A huge portion of his front leg had no skin. We don't know if he was burned with a blow torch or how he lost the skin.The officers were relieved to see that Hugo had a collar with tags and a license. It didn't dawn on them that this, spectacularly bred dog, everything anyone could want in a German shepherd was going to be left for a month to languish in the shelter .They repeatedly tried to contact the family with no success. Everyday the shelter vet flushed Hugo's wounds and applied the medication. Without careful care to his injury Hugo could have lost the leg. The vet proudly told us how Hugo knew the routine and was such a good dog. July 28, 2004 at 5:00 o'clock Hugo was going to be euthanized. We got the call we always dread to come quickly or else ... Hugo seemed to know that something good was happening when our volunteer showed up. He was so happy that the big guy was acting like a puppy, rubbing his head against the volunteer and wagging his big bushy tail. Even when he had to go back in a little cage temporarily, he knew he wasn't going to be abandoned this time. Can you help us continue Hugo's care at a veterinary hospital and help us make up to this magnificent dog? We need your help so we can continue to be the last hope for so many wonderful German Shepherds.
