Dog with two broken legs finds the perfect home

| Local News | Today Headlines

A dog who showed up at an animal shelter in Jackson with two broken paws has found a new home that looks like a perfect match. Radar, named by a vet tech for its extra large ears, arrived at the Mississippi Animal Rescue League earlier in October as a stray dog. After being examined by veterinarian Dr Mary Fooshee, it was discovered that he had identical fractures in both front legs. Radar had surgery performed by Dr Kirby Sills with the Veterinary Technology Program at Hinds Community College, which went wonderfully. “We’ve had a lot of inquiries. We’ve had over a hundred comments about it and probably around thirty adoption requests,” said Debra Boswell, executive director of the Mississippi Animal Rescue League. “The best news is Radar has a new mom he’s been waiting to meet,” MARL said in a Facebook post. “You all know we publish a lot of stories that we call ‘meant to be adoptions’, but we were convinced that the stars aligned perfectly for this one.” Radar’s new owner, Andrea Wilson, is originally from Mississippi and now lives in Rhode Island. Mason is a US Navy veteran and still works for the Navy as a civilian. His specialty is working on sonar and radar for submarines – a perfect match. “I hope this encourages people to find a pet to save, as this is the most exciting chapter I have had in a long time.” The Mississippi Animal Rescue League is grateful for all the media attention Radar has received. They said it allowed them to pay for the medical care he needed. “We couldn’t do this stuff for these little guys without the public support, the financial support, and the people who share the stories that we publish,” said Boswell.

“As soon as I saw his story, it was just this connection in my heart that I needed him no matter what it took,” Wilson said. “I hope this encourages people to find a pet to save, as this is the most exciting chapter I have had in a long time.”
