Sherman was thrown and his body hit the pavement with a sickening thud. His leg was shattered from the impact of the car that had just hit him.

Fear and heartbreak filled the devastated driver, who gathered Sherman up and rushed him to the vet; his owner abandoned him there once informed of Sherman's injury.

It was discovered that the leg could not be saved, but that Sherman - a sweet and mellow two-year old coonhound cross - would live.

Sherman loves people and he needs your love to help him heal. Your generosity will provide the surgery he needs and will get him back to 100%.

Thanks to animal-lovers like you Sherman is recovering!

Last week Sherman had the surgery to remove his severely broken leg and it didn't take this loving fella long before his tail was wagging again.
