Meet Casper

Tri Pod boy!

Casper came to us last fall as a 5 month old puppy from a local family who had purchasedhim as a small puppy. Quickly they realized that there was something wrong with his hind legs but they did not have the funds to bring him to an orthopedic for further testing. He was surrendered to us and immediately brought to our orthopedic who found that he had not only one but two deformed back legs, luxating patellas (grade 4) on each leg. This is a genetic mess up and he was purchased from a backyard breeder so it is not surprising. Within one week Casper had his first surgery to fix the more usableleg. It was a long road to recovery and we were uncertain of his future of walking normally again. After that leg healed he really didn'tshow signs of overall improvement and it was decidedto not move forward with surgery on the other leg, for many reasons. We gave him time, PT and a lot of working on walking before deciding to take the more deformed and painful leg off. About 2 weeks ago he had surgery to amputate the leg that was holding him back, it was a scary choice because we were uncertain how his other leg and ability to walk would adjust to this new concept of being 3 legged but with our chins on the floor Casper was up and walking the most normal he has ever walked in his life. Casper has always loved life, you can find him cuddled up with his buddy Zazoo at any time of the day or playing in the yard but the new light in his eyes has been amazing. He is finally thriving and able to be a "normal" dog. He is finally ready to find the perfect husky loving home and we couldn'tbe more grateful to be a part of this guy's story.
