One of the two dogs who survived the June Springboro cruelty case, in which nine canines were shot, is now looking for a new home.
Trooper, the three-legged German shepherd, has survived many surgeries, including the amputation of his front limb. For the past several weeks, he has been in a foster home.
Trooper’s foster family helps him keep his weight down and manage his activity level so that he does not strain his three other legs. Despite everything that has happened to Trooper, he is a happy and healthy dog.
Emily Danskin, ANNA Shelter staff said, “He’s always happy to see people. He’s very malleable. He can be quiet when he’s in a room by himself. He can go out and be energetic. He kind of moderates himself a little bit, but I just think his flexibility and his ability to adapt has been remarkable.”
Last June 28, the ANNA Shelter was called out to a house in the 25000 block of Reeds Corner Road in Springboro. Nine German Shepherds were shot in the head; two of the animals survived, while the other seven died.
On August 10 in Linesville, a preliminary hearing was held for suspect Skyler Martin, age 21.
