He started out as "Chance" because that's all he had. His feral mother abandoned him at birth on a cold May day and we awoke to his pitiful crying. We found him alone in the leaves at the edge of our woods. We took him in and bottle fed him every 2 hrs. He flourished, but was very sickly. He developed terrible abscesses on his legs which eventually crippled his front right paw. He has had multiple ailments, but has persevered through them all. We renamed him "Trooper" because he has been one through his entire ordeal. He is a playful, bounding 6 month old and the joy of our lives.
