The Columbia-Greene Humane Society/SPCA has a very special dog that needs a special home. Hunter, a two-year-old Bull Terrier mix, was a victim of animal abuse. Allegedly, the boyfriend of the former owner kicked Hunter and broke his hip, and the injury went untreated for months until he was turned over to CGHS/SPCA. Hunter was immediately examined by CGHS/SPCA Medical Director Jerry Bilinski, DVM, of Chathams Small Animal Hospital. Hunter’s injuries were a result of blunt trauma that fractured his hip, rendering him unable to use his leg. Dr. Bilinski operated on Hunter’s hip and was able to save his leg, and it appears that he should regain a portion of the leg’s mobility.

Currently, the Columbia-Greene Humane Society/SPCA is looking for the perfect home that will offer tender loving care while Hunter recuperates. Hunter loves everyone, appears to be good with cats and dogs, and will need someone with patience and a large heart to match his.
