Ike arrived here on the anniversary of D-Day - June 6 - so we named him "Ike" in honor of the Supreme Commander of the D-Day operation, General (later President) Dwight D. Eisenhower. Ike had been roaming in a rural area, and a nice family was feeding him any time he showed up at their place. One day Ike showed up with an obvious injury to his leg, and X-rays showed that is was broken and that he had been shot. Our best guess is that when he ran away from the shooter, he ran into the road and got hit by a car. He spent several weeks confined to a crate for most of his day as we let his leg heal.  After 8 long weeks in a splint, with crate rest and very limited walks, Ike can now start the next stage of his recovery.

 

Ike looks to be young, probably just a year old, and he's very sweet and has lots of energy.  He is a friendly boy who likes to play with the other dogs that he shares a yard with. We don't know much about his history, whether he is safe with livestock, fowl or cats, but we will learn that as we go. Ike never caused any problems while he was confined to his crate - he always went in easily and never complained about having to stay there.
