Bandit was another foster puppy we had at the time.2 weeks prior, I saw him being surrendered at the animal shelter. He had a broken leg. I picked him up as soon as my then-current foster dog had been adopted. Days after we got him, we arranged for him to have surgery to repair his broken femur. You can see the red stitch line on his left back leg in this picture.
Bandit was an incredibly incredibly good-natured dog. Really, the opposite of Popeye in temperament. They were a great match. Bandit was Popeye's first friend here.
