Meet Bandit - who is sure to steal your heart! According to his owner, he had a bad fall in his home which left him suffering in pain with a badly broken hind leg. She immediately brought him to a critical care facility for treatment. They refused care due to the owner's lack of money. When she tried to surrender custody directly to the veterinary care facility so he wouldn't have to suffer any longer and go home in pain, they refused.
The owner then brought the 3 month old pit bull terrier to the Society's Tinton Falls facility where he was immediately given a pain killer and the leg was x-rayed. During an examination during surgery, it was discovered that the jagged edge of the bone had pierced through many muscle layers. Due to complications, it was decided to amputate the leg.
