Brave Jimmy out on Three Legs

The six-month-old puppy savagely attacked with an iron bar at the weekend has a new name and a new lease on life after having its right front leg amputated.

Waitara vet Steve DeGrey, who performed the amputation on Monday, said the improvement in the bearded collie cross's condition has been remarkable.

"He doesn't know he's only got three legs now so he is still bumping into things," Dr DeGrey said.
"It was a severe injury and extremely painful. He couldn't move even with pain relief."
