At just six month old, Caboo has had quite the life.
Born as a stray, the young Shepherd/Rottweiler mix lived in a junkyard where he got by on scraps of food and whatever shelter he could find in a burned-out car or cardboard box. But a few months ago, Caboo lost his leg, likely after being hit by a train near the tracks adjacent to the junkyard.
The train may have taken his leg, but not his spirit. He suffered alone, with no one to care for him and treat his excruciating wound. Few people wandered the junkyard, and even fewer saw Caboo. But one day a kind passerby saw his missing limb and knew he needed help. That person called the Michigan Humane Society.
MHS immediately responded and took Caboo back to the Detroit Center for Animal Care for evaluation and medical treatment. From the very first moments when he revealed his gentle, loving personality, we knew he was a special boy.
Caboo’s leg was fully amputated, allowing him the chance to heal without his debilitating injury. He recovered in the foster care of MHS Chief Cruelty Investigator Debby MacDonald, where he learned such simple pleasures as walking on a leash, playing fetch, and eating regular, hearty meals. Today, Caboo lives with a loving guardian in Livonia - but he couldn’t have gotten there alone.
