for this little guy!

Found him lying in the middle of the highway. He didn't even try to get out of the way. Only got up when DD got out of the car...he started trying to hobble to her.

An hour drive to the emergency vet later and he has a broken tib/fib, lots of fleas, and he's adorable. knight hasn't said he can stay yet but after we go to our regular vet with him tomorrow I would say we are pretty well invested right????

What should we call him? DD22 says Oscar.... I'm not sure...

Ohhhhhh, the poor baby! So glad you could rescue him.

How long does it take to heal? Guess you'll be helping him go potty until it does.

First thought was "Scrumpy" because he's a hot mess right now, but you could call him Harvey Keitel because he's pugnacious...

He will likely have surgery tomorrow to pin it. I won't know how long until we see our regular vet tomorrow...

ETA...he desperately needs a bath and his fur is all matted. I don't think you can see it but he has the cutest really long, black, handlebar like mustache.

What about a Greek God?

Apollo - (a.k.a. Apollon, Apulu, Phoebus) God of the sun, music, healing, and herding.

Attis - The (minor) god of rebirth.

Heracles - (a.k.a. Herakles, Hercules, Hercle) An immortal hero of many Greek legends, the strongest man on Earth.

A few mor her too. I have a friend with a pug named Hercules - Herc to his friends.

Knight just called me and said maybe "Bogart"?

I was there waiting for my vet to open his office this morning but he doesn't do the pinning so he sent me back to an orthopedic vet in same city as emergency vet (1 hour away). So doggie and I went there this morning and I just dropped him off to be picked up tomorrow.

I absolutely love this orthopedic vet! In my experience as a nurse the specialists are frequently buttholes but this guy was super nice and concerned about the doggy. I told him that we want him neutered and I was worried about his teeth and his fur is all filthy and matted so I was wondering if we would be able to bath him after. He said he would go ahead and fix the leg, neuter him, clean his teeth, check him for heart worms, give him Immunizations, check for intestinal worms, and start him on heart worm meds for us. And we will only have to pay for the anesthesia once this way. Yay!

I told him husband was considering the name Bogart and when he was finished talking with me he picked up the doggy in his arms and as he carried him out of the room said, "come on Bogart, you're going to be just fine."

I actually think Humphrey would fit nicely.

He has a very gentlemanly face, so maybe an older name; Samuel, Theodore/Teddy, Chester, Cornelius, Orville, Franklin, Percy.

Oh! And I forgot to say the vet said he is even going to groom him while he's under anesthesia since his fur is all matted. That way they might not have to shave it all off.

What an awesome vet!

I posted him on a Facebook buy/sell/swap page for the area where I found him in case he has people looking for him (he doesn't have a chip and no tags). The vet said to take the post down immediately. He said it's obvious the dog wasn't taken care of at all and he's better off with me. I got all (misty) because that's what I really want is to keep him. But a small part of me is saying what if he got lost from a family?.....

I mean he was lying in the road....

Can I keep him????

Absolutely! When my family lost pets growing up it was always my hope that some kind person took them in and cared for them. Better that than hit by a car or snatched by a coyote. Whatever he meant to his previous owners he is meant to be with you now.

Vet called and puppy made it through surgery fine.

Knight called and I told him all the stuff the vet was doing... He asked if I knew how much it would all cost... Me: I was afraid to ask... Knight: *sigh* might as well call them and get them to microchip him too. We don't want to lose him.

Have I mentioned I have an awesome husband?

ETA: so this means we're keeping him.

He's doing well. Happy and a lot less furry. The vet shaved him down.

I will post pics tomorrow. He ended up with a plate, a few screws, and a pin.

After i picked him up today knight said maybe we should call him Steve Austin. Not quite six million but close enough.

So adorable! I like Oscar. In his original picture, his fur kinda looks like Oscar's from Sesame Street. Our 15 1/2 year old beagle named Oscar just crossed the rainbow bridge so I'm partial to that name.

Talk about a rescue dog! Right from the middle of the road! Sounds like you are his guardian angel!

I had a dog that as hit by a car and had a plate put in.... That's not cheap that was a really great thing you both did.

Have you picked a name yet?

Bogart sounded good. I thought have sandy from the movie Annie. He looked just like that dog but with him shaved the name doesn't seem right.

If you have a Gigi, maybe "Maurice" or "Chevalier" would work! Whatever you call him, you guys are aces to rescue and keep him.

I had a Wolgfie (Wolfgang) doggie. He was the sweetest German shepherd ever and I miss him.

Hey Knightsbff , I just noticed that you now need to change your signature line to "3 kids and two dogs".

Another fantastic dog-rescue story with pics!! I'm in heaven...

Seriously tho, knightsbff - you guys ROCK for saving this precious dog. There should be a special place in heaven for those that rescue helpless animals. You guys went sooooo above and beyond by getting him all the vet care he so desperately needed.

Count me in the "Oscar" camp for a name. I think it fits him.

I love Bogart, Bogie for short. You guys will have a special place in heaven reserved for animal lovers/rescuers. Animals love so unconditionally and forgive so quickly, wish people were more like that.

He looks so happy :)

The kids say we can't name him bogart because that is a magical creature on Harry Potter that turns into things that scare you and a bogie is a peice of dried snot in England (we lived in London for a year).

We are having a bit of a stressful weekend. My dad and his girlfriend are here from FL and knight's parents and two of his brothers are here.

Knight suggested "FOO" but then the dog would be abused and 180ed.

I woke up this morning and the first thing that popped into my head was that first picture and the word "OZZIE".

It's the diminutive of Oscar, which you could use when you are being stern with him.

It's also shared with one of the most indestructible survivors in heavy metal.

Plus "OZZZZZEEEEEEEEE" is great for yelling out at the dog park.

You KNOW my vote is for Oscar.

But, I just had to say that the pic of him with your GSD is

TOO. STINKIN. CUTE.

Now, just name that baby!!! Any name with love (and Oscar ) will be perfect.

We just took his stitches out. He then challenged his big sister to a wrestling match which is a no no until the pin comes out in 4 1/2 weeks, so they are both in bed with us taking naps.
