Meet Asher McMushy - Pawsitive Direction Program
Asher McMushy was found abandoned in a dog park late September/early October 2018. We’ll leave out all the drama surrounding how we got our hands on him, but he was Nicole’s (LARC President) birthday save because she couldn’t let him be euthanized. Asher had a minor femoral head fracture that we allowed to heal on its own per the advice of our awesome Orthopedic Surgeon. There’s a possibility he’s chondrodysplastic which is a form of dwarfism. He kind of looks like his body was put in the dryer on the high heat setting which caused it to shrink, but his head was left out, so it remained the average square size. He’s too friggin’ cute, we tell ya! X-rays show Asher does have degenerative joint disease which is most likely from poor breeding. He has been started on joint supplements and this will be a lifelong need (we use human grade which is just as effective, but more affordable). So, Asher McMushy walks with a little extra swagger in his back end, but he isn’t in pain.
