Max is an older Siberian Husky, estimated 9-10yrs – his eyes definitely show some signs of aging but he is still a sweet boy with a good amount of energy and a lot of love. He comes to us from a high kill shelter in Clovis, NM where he was rescued along with his blood-related brother. The two are oddly not bonded (they actually got into a few scuffles, though not shocking considering both were not neutered when they arrived), and we have placed them in separate foster homes and they have actually seemed quite content with the new companions they have found. Max is with a female husky who is just a little younger than him and is doing great.
When Max was pulled from the shelter, he had what the rescue contact in NM originally believed to be a wound that was not healing. She took him for immediate vet care and received some medication – unfortunately once this was out, he still had the wound in the same condition. We took him to our vet shortly after he arrived in Arizona, at which time we realized that this was likely a tumor. Our vet removed this mass the following week and it is currently out for testing – we believe that all of it was removed and his bloodwork and urinalysis tests were very good considering his age overall. Depending on the results and his follow-up visit once his staples are removed, he will have a clean bill of health and be fully available for adoption!
Let us know if this old boy might be a good fit to join your family for his final years.
