Scooter was found in a forest while having a badly injured leg.
Vets believe that the dog’s leg got stuck in something, and it remains here for a long time, and this would definitely be the hard period for the dog, as because of continuous pressure on the leg, the injury got much worse with every hour passing, and the time when dog got rescued, the leg was not curable, so they had to eliminate the seriously injured leg of Scooter.
Joshua lost his leg when he and four other soldiers were in a truck that passed over a planted explosive device. Sadly, he ended up losing his leg in the explosion, it was one of the greatest sad moment in his life, but still, Joshua remains grateful that none of the soldiers lost their lives that day.
“There are silver linings to anything,” Joshua said. “You can find something. And even if you can’t, somebody’s had it worse, so just stop complaining.”
Joshua and Scooter spend a great time of day together in doing many things that they can do together. Both of them join in playing, doing yoga, and exploring the park. Most importantly, Scooter keeps Joshua’s hopes when times get tough. “It makes it easier for me to remember that, hey, it’s still a beautiful day,” Ferguson said. “You realise really just how tremendous a journey life is.”
