Veterinary technician Stephanie Varju got a kiss from Iggy on Wednesday at the Great Plains SPCA in Merriam. The 8-month-old boxer mix had bones exposed on his left front leg when animal control found him Tuesday. Iggy is recovering after the leg was amputated and will be available for adoption in seven days.
