Rescue Group Rehabilitates Injured Dog

Trooper, an injured Rottweiler rescued in Elizabeth, will need to have surgery to amputate one of his legs.

ELIZABETH — Two years ago, All-Star Pet Rescue of Linden learned about a Rottweiler dog with a mangled leg that had been seen in Elizabeth. Although rescue workers made several attempts to find the dog and bring him in, they were never able to capture the Rottweiler.

After two years of living on the streets, the dog was finally captured by animal control officers and brought to the Elizabeth pound. When All-Star Pet Rescue learned of the dog’s capture, group members went to get him and took him to their veterinarian.


As expected, Trooper’s damaged leg will need to be amputated. He is resting up at Elizabeth Ann Kennels in Stirling, but will be transferred to a foster home after his surgery. All-Star Pet Rescue is asking for donations to help with Trooper’s care, which can be mailed to All-Star Pet Rescue, P.O. Box 301, Linden, NJ 07036.
