We took in Biscuit from a vet in CA – He was hit by a car and taken to a vet, where his microchip tracked down the owners. They were called, but told the vet that he was always getting out and they couldn’t afford to pay for his medical care anyway so just put him to sleep!
He has had a very distinct limp in his leg from the car accident since we got him and we had an MRI done to show the extent of the damage – the neurologists recommended that we work on physical therapy to allow him to keep his leg and regain use, so that is exactly what we have been doing. He has shown steady improvements and handles his appointments very well! The alternative was amputation, but we wanted to help him keep his leg if it was an option!
Biscuit’s fosters note that he is shy towards humans (not in a feral/skittish way but definitely shy at first) but LOVES belly rubs and will happily take treats from your hand, which he is super gentle about doing. He also loves dogs his size and larger, and will play for hours – he will actually seek out the most playful dog in the pack and become best friends! We don’t recommend super mouthy rough playmates for Biscuit, but definitely dogs with energy are recommended! He is also completely fine with cats – no aggression and pretty much just ignores them! Definitely unique for a husky in that he won’t even chase them.
He loves lounging and napping – you can usually find him in a quiet place or basking in the sun when he’s not playing with another pup. During the summer, he likes laying on pool steps to cool off too. With therapy, the feeling in his leg is improving and he does not have activity restrictions anymore. He does get daily medication, but it is not expensive.
We would love to give a potential adopter the full rundown on what his medical future looks like and what cost expectation there would be in giving Biscuit a forever home! After everything this sweet guy has been through, he deserves to finally be with one person or family for the rest of his life.
