It all happened back in November.   And seven surgeries later a pit-bull puppy Trooper is still recovering after nearly being dragged to death on Interstate 55 by a pick up truck.   The dog was named by the Human Society of Missouri.  His injuries included exposed tissue and bones. One leg almost had to be amputated. His most recent surgery was July 19. Dr. Travis Arndt of the Animal Medical Center of Mid-America performed the operation to repair Trooper’s right knee.

Right now Trooper is living with Linda Campbell who is the human society’s behavior manager.   So far medical care for Trooper has exceeded $50,000.   There are updates on Trooper’s Facebook page and you can donate to help him continue his recovery.

Unfortunately the man driving the truck, Victor Washington did not see the dog tied to his hitch.  A security camera backs up this claim.  Oddly enough his ex wife has been charged with animal abuse multiple times.  As to whether or not she was involved her remains a mystery.  We’re just happy Trooper is on the up and up.
