Meet Danny in NH

We’d like to reintroduce Danny!
This is actually Danny’s second trip to NH. ? Danny first arrived in NH in December of last year. Upon arrival it was very noticeable that Danny had discomfort in his hind legs which hindered his mobility. Our wonderful board member in MS offered to take him and see him through what we anticipated could potentially be surgery. Sadly, it was quickly recommended, based on the severity of the hip issues, that Danny be euthanized. To which we said…not so fast…. ??
As you can see (see videos in comments), once Danny was able to move and build muscle, he has adapted and is able to very much enjoy life (you know dogs and their carpe diem mentality). This doesn't change the fact that he has some significant issues with his back hip. Xrays don’t show any history of injury, this is just the way Danny was made.???? His hip sockets don’t hold the femoral head and therefore his hips don’t stay in place. He is another of Motley’s pups with ‘wonky hips’ (check out the bunny hop in the video in the comments). At this time, the recommendation from a couple other veterinarians is that Danny be allowed to ‘dog’. Danny should remain mobile and active for as long as his hips allow. We are looking for a home where Danny can be free to play, fetch, run, and of course be snuggled but also where his new family will realize that he won’t be their hiking or mountain biking partner. He shouldn't be crated for extensive periods of time (although he is crate trained and does sleep in his crate happily at night). Danny is good with other dogs and loves to play. He showed some pain (a whimper) when he would pay for a while with other pups, so monitoring playful bursts would be good. He is not currently on any pain meds but they may be needed in the future. Danny is around 8 months and currently between 40 and 45 pounds (and maintaining that slim figure is imperative).
Long story short, we are looking for that family that can be the right fit (better than how his hips fit) for Danny. Who can support him on rough days, let him enjoy the life he deserves. We wish we had a crystal ball ? we don’t know what his hips will need in the future (Motley is willing to work alongside adopters to help support the best we can), but alas, we have not mastered that skill yet.
If you think you can be dedicated to providing Danny the support and environment he needs while showering him with the love and affection he deserves, you can find our application on our website. If not your home, please give his post a share and help to spread the word.
Oh Danny boy, we shall find you your forever home!
