He’s been treated for his injuries. He’s been given a name. Now he’s looking for a foster home, where he can recuperate from surgery.
Treasure Valley police and community volunteers rallied to save a stray dog struck by a car near Middleton last week. The dog was found lying on Idaho Highway 44 west of Middleton around 6 a.m. Wednesday.
The unneutered, male bully breed was named Walker Moore — after Middleton Police Sgt. Steve Walker and Canyon County Deputy Bryce Moore, the officers involved in his rescue.
Veterinarians at All Valley Medical Care Center performed surgery on the dog Sunday, according to Cathleen Catti of Boise Bully Breed Rescue. She said two surgeons worked on the dog for about four hours.
“Metal plates and screws were placed in his pelvic area,” she said. He will require about two months of crate rest and will need to be taken out on a sling.
