Puppy Recovering After Owner Says Man Threw It From Balcony

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (WDAF) — The former owner of a border collie named Max reports Max was deliberately thrown off the balcony of a home in Kansas City. He was rushed to KC Pet Project by a Kansas City, Missouri animal control officer, suffering from a leg fracture; his front teeth were knocked out and his lungs were bruised from the fall.

The KC Pet Project veterinary team applied a splint to his fractured leg and has been managing his pain, but Max will need to have orthopedic surgery soon to repair the damage to his leg, followed by recovery in a foster home until his leg and lungs are healed.

KC Pet Project is asking for donations to their Roadrunner Medical Fund for Max's surgery. It is expected to cost about $2,500.
