A staff member writes: Common was found dragging his back legs and bleeding and appears to have possibly been hit by a car. He currently has a pneumothorax, HBC, and multiple pelvic fractures and will need emergency stabilization at an overnight vet to monitor his breathing. He will need surgical repair for his fractures once he has stabilized.
