Theo is a 4-month-old husky puppy who has had a really tough start. This poor guy was hit by a car and suffered multiple injuries. His right elbow was luxated and had to undergo a splint procedure. The top of front leg is broken and a plate and screws were needed for complete recovery. Another break on the back leg needed a plate and screws. The upper lip where there is a gap had to be sutured to avoid food getting stuck. All of this was expensive, the most NorSled has spent on any one pup. This little warrior pup is in for an extended recovery. He will need much support and physical therapy. But even after Norsled is comfortable releasing him to a new home, his adopter will need to be patient while he gets “back on his paws.” If you don’t have room for a dog in your life at this time, please consider making a donation to help cover his surgeries.
The only way to see him is to fill out an application (https://www.norsled.org/info/adoption) and make an appointment.
