Dillinger the Lucky Lab

Dillinger had been very unlucky, until Pet Rescue by Judy heard about him and pulled him from a high-kill shelter. His owner put him in a crate with no food or water, covered it in a blanket, and put him out to be collected with the trash. Orange County Animal Services was called, and they soon discovered that Dillinger's left rear leg is broken - he was hit by a car a month ago and his owner never took him to a vet. He also has dermatitis from a flea infestation, mange, an infection in his right ear, and a deformation in his front left leg.

Dillinger's lone chance was a rescue willing to invest the money needed for his recovery. Pet Rescue by Judy was the only group that stepped up to help this boy. On 05/12, Dr. Raulerson of Animal Hospital at Vista Lakes performed a surgery called an FHO to repair his rear leg and he is currently in physical therapy. Dilly is a friendly, loving boy who is expected to recover use of his back leg and go on to live a long and happy life.
