Isn’t Rangel handsome! Rangel is a 1yr old Rottweiler/Shepard Mix that is always happy to say hello! He is a young, exuberant boy and loves to play with people and go out and expend some of his boundless energy!
However there is more to Rangel’s story. Rangel has a joint issue in his rear leg that is so debilitating that the only solution is arthrodesis of his tarsal joint
Arthrodesis is the fusing of the joint by removing the cartilage and placing metal implants. This is an extreme procedure but is needed for Rangel to live a happy, pain free life.
Rangel is a young dog and has so much life ahead of him it is important that he is able to live as comfortably as possible. We are not sure how Rangel injured himself (he came to APA already limping) but we are committed to fixing him and YOU can help make this possible!
