Koda received his updated X-rays at the end of August and he has recovered with no problems from his leg surgery. Koda is now off all restrictions and he is enjoying being able to run and play again. Koda recently was able to go camping with his foster family, which he really enjoyed. Koda is currently in foster with five other dogs and he is great with dogs of all sizes. He is also tolerant of cats! Now that he is completely healed, Koda would love to find a forever home of his own. He is going to be a great addition to a lucky home!


Koda is a fun-loving, easygoing Boxer mix boy. He loves everyone he meets, dog or human. Koda also loves toys, playing with his foster siblings, sunbathing, and napping. He is tolerant of cats. Koda has a great appetite and has never had an accident in the house. He learned to use the dog door quickly and he is crate trained. Everyone he meets agrees that Koda has the sweetest disposition, especially considering the amount of pain his untreated broken leg must have caused him. He was a rockstar throughout his treatment and recovery, wearing a cumbersome external fixator for almost 2 months without complaint. Koda had the external fixator removed on July 6th. He is gradually increasing his activity and will have X-rays completed at the end of August. Koda is a tall boy and due to his size, he would do better in a home with older children. He loves sleeping in and has enjoyed summer break when his foster kids let him sleep and he doesn’t have to get up early for school. His tail never stops wagging.


Koda made it through his surgery without any problems. The vet’s office commented on what a sweet boy he was and his foster mom notes that his tail is always wagging! Koda continues to get along great with all of the other dogs in his foster home. He loves to sunbathe in the yard.  Koda will have eight weeks of restricted activity and four additional check ups over the next several weeks of his recovery.  He will receive updated xrays at 8 weeks post surgery.  Koda’s first check up went very well and his incision looks great. Koda is a very good boy when his foster mom applies his compresses. Thank you to everyone who donated for his surgery. We will continue to keep his page updated with Koda’s progress.


Workers at a building in West Virginia found this emaciated boy laying there with a swollen leg. He was very happy to get attention from them and they put a towel down for him to lay on while waiting for help. Animal control picked him up and took him to the vet, where it was determined that he had a broken front leg. He was splinted and returned to the shelter, which was already 40 dogs over capacity. AABR was contacted to see if we could help him and thanks to a foster home in Maryland who said yes right away, Koda was able to leave the shelter on Saturday and he arrived at a foster home.   He is estimated to be just over a year of age and Koda only weighs 48 lbs.  He is a very sweet boy who had no issues meeting the three other boxers in his foster home.

Koda had an appointment with an orthopedic surgeon this morning. The break is estimated to be around 6-8 weeks old, so this boy has been in terrible pain for a long time. The recommendation is surgery with a great prognosis for a full recovery. The estimate is $4500, which will include Koda’s neuter. Please consider donating towards Koda’s upcoming surgery tomorrow. We want to give this boy the best chance for a full recovery.
