No, it's not a bovine bull -- it's a pit bull that someone dumped out here. He is the sweetest dog imaginable and gets along fine with all the animals he's met so far. We're keeping him in the barn office for the time being. He also seems to be housebroken.
But here's the wrinkle. I'm afraid he has a broken leg. The skin on his belly is also scraped, swollen, and red. I wonder if he was thrown from a moving vehicle and landed on his belly. His left rear leg points out about 45 degrees instead of straight forward, and he won't sit on that side. He favors it when walking, but if he forgets himself and puts too much weight on it, his back end just collapses. I've sent two emails and left a phone message for a pit bull rescue, but no word yet from them. I'm nervous about the possible vet bills, so I'm hoping they're able to help. I even told them we'd foster him until he can find his new home. Any other ideas or suggestions?
