Bruno Wants to Thank Everyone Who Donated for His Surgery Expenses!

August 12 Update – Bruno saw the Vet again today.(Please see Backround info) He got an ‘A+‘ from the Vet. She was very pleased that everything seemed just as it should be. There looks to be no signs of infection nor any fluid buildup along the incision. She has given Bruno the go ahead to play with all his doggy friends again! The staples holding the incision together can be removed next week.

Our rescue prides itself on not discriminating against a dog because of a medical condition. We always want to help the dogs with medical needs but it can be very difficult for us when our checkbook balance is low. Sometimes we have to resort to asking our supporters for financial assistance.

The generosity of our wonderful supporters, willing to make a financial donation, never ceases to amaze us. Every donation, whether larger or small, means a lot to us. Bruno and the 4 Luv of Dog Rescue wants to thank everyone who donated towards his surgery expenses and even helped us to exceed our $1000 goal.


Bruno was hit by a car, picked up by animal control, and brought to the pound in Mankato, MN. The clinic staff soon learned that he had atrophy in his left front leg from an old injury and cannot use that leg. It may need to be amputated in the future. (Update: Bruno’s left front leg was amputated on August 3rd) . His right back leg took the brunt of the car accident and needed a pin to hold his hip in place.

Most dogs in this situation with no known owner would be put to sleep, but Bruno won over the hearts of the clinic staff. They made numerous calls to different rescues to see if anyone would accept him. This is how he ended up with us! After the needed surgery on his hip, he made transport from Mankato to Fargo. Bruno touched everyone’s heart that he met along the way.

Bruno’s Paralyzed Left Front Leg Scheduled for Amputation 8/3… Unfortunately he developed a severe infection in paralyzed front leg. We brought him to (vet)ER clinic where he was put on IV fluids/antibiotics to bring down 106 fever. The next morning, we took him to local Vet and arranged emergency surgery for 8/3 Mon. An abscess in his paralyzed leg was found/Bruno spent weekend @ clinic. Surgery occured 8/3 and he is currently recovering. For all that Bruno has gone thru, He is a happy dog and wags tail every where he goes!

About 4luvofdog

We are a 100% Volunteer run, non-profit organization dedicated to rescuing and rehoming dogs. ~2013: We are proud that we accepted into our rescue 109 dogs from local pounds last year. That is in addition to the 107 dogs from various regional pounds and the 174 owner surrenders that we took in. We also took in 71 dogs from the Wheatland puppy mill, and had 47 dogs born in the rescue. That’s a total of 508 dogs! In 2013 4 Luv of Dog Rescue adopted out 495 dogs! We are based in Fargo, North Dakota. All of our dogs are in foster homes, our facility, or are being cared for at local boarding facilities. When accepting a dog into our rescue program we will not discriminate based on breed, age, size or medical condition. All dogs will be treated equally and every effort will be put forth to find the dog a new home. In order for us to continue saving the lives of dogs, we must have the foster home and monetary resources to care for them. Please consider helping us to save these dogs by becoming a foster home or making a monetary donation. With your help, together we can make a difference in the lives of these unfortunate homeless dogs. We receive NO government funding and rely upon grants, fundraising and your generous donations to pay our expenses. Thank you!
