Stumpy came into Rockingham-Harrisonburg SPCA’s care after being found in the front yard of a McGaheysville home. It was clear that Stumpy had suffered an injury to his left front paw, which had resulted in a severe infection leaving Stumpy unable to use the paw. Stumpy was put on a course of antibiotics to fight the infection and we were hopeful he would regain use of his leg. Sadly, the infection had already spread to his toes and bones in his little feet and our vets soon determined that Stumpy would need an amputation.
