Nacho came into our care in late June of this year. A good Samaritan had found him shortly after he had been hit by a car and was left to fend for himself. The incident had happened after hours so he was taken to a local vet for pain medication to make him comfortable for the night. The following morning he was transported to our veterinarian in Mexicali where it was determined that his leg was broken clean in half, and he had suffered some slight spinal damage that caused him to lose feeling in his lower tail. Nacho immediately went into surgery to repair his severely broken leg and to have much of his lower tail amputated. After his surgery, he went into a foster home and ended up being fostered by the very nice lady who had initially found him! Fast forward a few months and Nacho is doing well and has made a full recovery! His foster mom tells us that he is such a happy boy and he is always excited to see and meet new people. He is very confident and likes to walk around like he owns the place. Nacho is not afraid of anything! Nacho’s foster mom tells us that he gets along well with other dogs and he does like cats. In fact, his best friend is a cat! When he is not busy playing with his toys and his kitty best friend, Nacho is usually busy cuddling with his foster family and showering them with lots of love and kisses. Nacho is looking forward to finding his furever home for Pawtoberfest!
