After leaving a veterinary clinic, a Howl Of A Dog rescue team was returning to the shelter, and they noticed an injured dog limping on the side of the road, hiding in bushes.
They stopped and went nearer, in order to prevent the dog from going further into the thick bushes, so they could rescue him.
The desperate dog soon realized that the rescuers were there to help.
The team took the dog to the veterinary clinic for an examination and X-ray.
The results showed that the poor dog, Vlad, had a double fracture, as both of his front leg bones were broken and needed repair surgery.
According to the vet, the fracture was at least a week old.
Vlad was also very emaciated since he had to survive so many days without food, suffering from so much pain.
The dog was so hungry when the rescuers found him that he even grabbed a box of tissues from the car and tried to eat them.
Fortunately, even though the surgery was very complicated, everything went well and Vlad recovered well.
He underwent repair surgery and the fractured bones were fixed with metal plates and screws.
At this point, the dog was 2 years old.
He was fully vaccinated, sterilized, and microchipped, and spent his days at the shelter of Howl Of A Dog in Romania.
He was described as a dog full of joy and one that always finds a lot of fun in everything he does.
Vlad was eventually adopted, and he now lives in sunny Phoenix, Arizona.
Everyone loves him, and he is adored by his father.
He has settled down very well and is getting along great with his playmate Gemini, a very handsome mix of Pitbull and Labrador.
His friendly personality is now reflected in his new name as well, Buddy.
