This is from a greyhound rescue volunteer in GA:

I'm sending this because I know that some of you have Italian Greyhounds or may know someone who has considered adopting one.

I received an email this morning about a male IG (approx. 1-2 yrs old) that was turned in to the Douglas County Animal Shelter with a broken leg wrapped in masking tape. His leg was in such bad condition that it had to be amputated. He was also neutered and received a rabies shot at the same time. Luckily, a very kind shelter employee took him home to recuperate. They say that he is very friendly and loving and is getting along with this person's other dog and cat.

If you are interested in seeing pictures of him or want more information, please let me know.

OMG!!!

His leg might have been able to have been SAVED if he was turned into rescue BEFORE this.

Oh - this makes me SO SAD.

I hope he gets a good home soon.

wow...poor baby =( he must have been through a lot of pain. I don't even know how can someone just see him in pain and do nothing.

I'm so glad someone took care of him and I hope he finds a great home soon.

Finally I was sent some pictures and to my eyes this boy is a mix at best. He still deserves a wonderful home.
