Sweet Ricky and his whole family were surrendered to a local shelter from a backyard breeder. Ricky has been in a cage for most of his eight years of life and suffered an undiagnosed leg injury. It is heartbreaking to see the neglect of living in a cage for years with an injury—the pain and suffering is unimaginable. Ricky was taken to an orthopedic surgeon who determined that the injury to his leg was very old and could not be repaired. His leg was amputated, and he is recovering in a loving foster home.
