Jax: a Buddy and Belle animal profile

Yip! My name is Jax (A11390) and I am a seven-month-old toy poodle. I found myself at the Ottawa Humane Society (OHS) after I suffered a nasty fall from the couch. I was in a lot of pain and wasn’t sure why. Turns out, I broke both of my front legs! My owners could not afford to have my legs repaired, so they made the difficult decision to surrender me to the OHS in the hopes that they might be able to help me.

Despite my injuries, I kept a positive attitude because I knew that the OHS staff would do everything they could to help me. Everyone keeps telling me how sweet and gentle I am — which is nice to hear since I always try to be on my best behaviour!

In order to save both my legs, the OHS veterinarian decided I needed surgery. He explained that they would use plates and screws to make my legs strong again and help me heal as quickly as possible.

When I woke up after the operation, my legs were splinted. They sure felt funny! But at least I wasn’t in pain, because the OHS staff gave me medication and lots of cuddles to help me feel better.

Due to my special needs, I am currently in the foster home of an OHS employee. I have to take it easy for the next two months, but I am already excited at the thought of getting to look for my new forever home soon!

Please help Jax, and other animals like him in need of emergency animal treatment, by visiting our Buddy and Belle Fund page.
