TOPEKA, Kansas (CNN) – ‘Ryker’ is an Australian Shepherd mix, abandoned with a broken leg.
Luckily, Trisha Sharp’s second grade class in Topeka was reading the book, “Sheepdog in the Snow,” about a dog that was abandoned and rescued by a little girl.
The class heard about Ryker’s plight through the “Helping Hands Society” facebook page.
It said the dog needed surgery that would cost around $400, as well as foster care.
The class raised $450 and Ryker had the surgery.
He is doing well and looking for a permanent home.
