Madoo is a 6 year old male, color headed white sheltie that was recently taken in by Maine Sheltie Rescue. As you can see, he is a very sweet boy!
Madoo is currently on medical hold because he came into rescue with a broken leg, but he will be up for adoption once he is all better.
Madoo had a very bad fracture to his leg that needed surgery. His former owner was visiting his wife in a nursing home, who was outside. When he went out to see her, he let go of of Madoo’s leash, and at the same time a motorcycle was going by. Madoo went after it, only to get hit by a car from behind. :(
On May 22nd he had surgery, and almost a month later he was turned over to Sheltie rescue. His leg never healed and he needed surgery again – costing over $2000.00.
If you feel so inclined to make a donation to his expenses & recovery, you can send a check made payable to:
P.O. Box 304
Palmyra, ME 04965
Madoo had his 2nd surgery on 6/23 and it went really well! He is now on the mend. (It takes 8 weeks for a bone to heal.) The rescue bank account will hopefully heal faster with help. ;)
If you are interested in adopting Madoo or another Sheltie from Maine Sheltie Rescue, you can visit their website or contact Holly Fent. (There is normally a waiting list for dogs as they become available.)
10/11/10 Madoo has been adopted!
