A Dog Chewed This Pet Pig’s Leg Off Then His Owners Dumped Him Outside In The Cold On A Wet Blanket

Erin was afraid that Buttons would need to have the rest of his bad leg amputated, but thankfully, that’s not the case.

“The hope is that the severely damaged bone will remodel and the fragments resorb over time and that the skin will eventually heal over the stump,” Erin explained in an update.

“This could take several more weeks or even months and it’s possible that he may need a skin graft at some point.”

“The current need at this time is to set him up with a safe and warm area in my yard where he can spend some outdoor time during the day but not have access to the pasture or creek.”

“It’s getting cold here in Ellensburg and he is far too young to be out in cold weather plus his injured leg needs to stay clean and dry.”

“It will be a challenge but it’s what he needs and deserves! This morning he decided he was a lap pig and really, how could I say no?”

Erin continued to say that due to the donations she has received for Buttons and his care so far, she was able to get him an insulated shelter for her backyard so that he can stay warm in the snow, which he definitely does not like.

Erin is doing everything she can to get Buttons all healed up so that he can then be taken to the Pigs Peace Sanctuary in Stanwood, Washington.
