UPDATE: Disabled Pup Is Making Wonderful Recovery

Landis should go to a home with no concrete – lots of grass and carpeting are preferable. Hydrotherapy would be a huge plus!


Last month we told you about Landis, the dog whose legs were badly disabled from living in a tiny cage.  Since he was rescued, he has been making lots of progress, and now he’s ready for a home!


1.10.15 - Update on Landis1


From Second Chance Rescue NYC Dogs:

Landis saw our amazing orthopedic specialist/surgeon late yesterday. He said that since Landis’ legs have continued to show improvement since we first rescued him & he believes he will continue to improve moving forward. He does not believe we should do surgery at this time because, the surgery is very painful for the dog & he is regaining tone in his legs. Aside from the surgery being painful, the plates put in often need to be surgically removed after 1-2 years. His legs will never be perfect, but Landis is happy and not in pain and that is what is most important.

What he does recommend is that Landis go to a home where he will not be forced to walk on concrete or other hard surfaces because of his pressure sores. A home with a fenced in backyard and lots of soft grass would be awesome for Landis. That way, he would not have to worry about being walked on concrete.





We also feel that Landis would benefit greatly from hydrotherapy, so if you are able to offer that, it’s a bonus.

Of course we want the very best for this amazing dog who has captured the hearts of so many. We are currently accepting adoption applications on him, so if you want to throw your hat in the ring, please go to www.nycsecondchancerescue.org now to apply. Please read above and make sure your home is a proper fit. Landis is good with dogs and kids, despite his condition. We are working on apps that we currently have. He has forever offers, so no foster will be needed. Thank you for your ongoing support of this lovebug!

  1. He looks so much better! So glad he was saved and has a chance to enjoy a loving home like he deserves!

  2. I agree with Lou, make sure his ears are cut but dont look after him. Poor little fella. An eye for an eye i say for animal cruelty and that includes ear cutting.

  3. That is sick how ppl treat dogs! They should take the owner of the dog and put them into a small cage! With no food or anything, and see how they like it. But I’m glad that the pup is doing so well.

  4. Prayers for a loving home and healed body for this sweet baby. To the monster who hurt him……”What done to him, already done to you” you WILL be accountable!!!

  5. So glad to see this dog recovering from his ordeal. What is wrong with these people? Don’t have a dog if you’re not going to love him.

  6. Its Great he’s getting better just shocks me that people get away with the crawl behaviour for so long!, some people shouldn’t be aloud pets when they get treated like that!, poor dog!

  7. I hate cages for dogs, why get a social/pack animal and then shut it in a cage for 8 hours while your at work, take it for a walk, then back in the cage overnight, I have four dogs, you wouldn’t put your kids in a cage ‘to train them’

  8. damn wish someone would do the same to this cruel Bastard who did this, and let him in there for 20 years that he is irreversible cribbled

  9. poor baby!!! i hope he does wells hes adorable id take him in a heartbeat so cute be brave little guy!!! lots love to you <3

  10. It’s well past time for our society to implement a mandatory spay and neuter program of mean and stupid people.
