TROOPER

(TURNIP)

Trooper’s story truly is a miracle. In July 2017, people spotted him in a town about 2 hours from Sarajevo with his front paw barely hanging on by a few ligaments.

 

Unfortunately his paw could not be saved, and his entire leg was amputated. Now one of the cutest “tri-pawds” out there, Trooper caught the eye of a loving forever family in the U.K., where he is now living “Happawly” Ever After!

 

Trooper’s story is truly a miracle. In July 2017, people spotted him in Srebrenica, a town about 3 hours from Sarajevo with his front paw barely hanging on by a few ligaments. His photos went viral on social media.

 

He was so afraid that he wouldn’t let anyone come near him enough to be able to help him. By some miracle, one day he let his guard down long enough for someone to rescue him.

 

He was transported to Sarajevo under the care of our rescue partner, Nina, where he had surgery.

 

Unfortunately his paw could not be saved, and his entire leg was amputated. Now one of the cutest “tri-pawds” out there, Trooper caught the eye of a loving forever family in the U.K., where he is now living “Happawly” Ever After!
