Rescued dog needs expensive leg surgery

    Sailor is a German Shepherd mix puppy who was found in a South Philadelphia garbage heap earlier this week. His rescuer is looking for donations to help pay for the surgery to fix his very damaged legs.


    Philebrity directed us to the donation site set up for Sailor, where anyone who finds the cute, injured pup irresistible can make financial contribution to his leg surgery.

    The $3,000 to $5,000 surgery will three of Sailor’s legs, and may help him keep the fourth.
