FILTHY OLD HUSKY WITH INFECTED LEG HID HIS MAGNIFICENCE BENEATH HIS PAIN

It pains us that any dog has to suffer. We are grateful, however, that there are so many kind individuals who give their time to assist animals in need. Animal rescues are saints who deserve to be recognized. They wear invisible capes because they are superheroes to sick and homeless animals, writes ilovemydogsomuch.

A senior Husky was discovered with a horrific wound. It had been going on for so long, and the infection was so bad, that his leg was in significant pain. The infection threatened to enter his circulation, resulting in septic shock.

(He was also filthy that he looked gray! In fact, he’s a red Husky. Just wait until you see his real coat at the end!)

The unfortunate dog was also getting on in years, making mending that much more difficult. When they rescued the Husky and took him to the vet, they discovered he had lost most of his teeth due to old age.

The medical team continued to assess the dog. They gave him medication for pain. They decided it would be best to amputate his leg; it was no longer salvageable. Trying to save his leg at this point would be cruel. Dogs do great on three legs and with this infectious wound gone, he could start a new, healthy life. They booked the surgery right away. There was no time to waste!

The operation went quite well! The medical team continued to observe the Husky to ensure he was recuperating properly. Take a look at him now! He’s incredibly attractive! Look at that gorgeous red coat! Red Huskies are stunning.

The lovely canine will remain at the rescue center with his new companions until he can find a new happy home.

We are very glad that they discovered him when they did. He was definitely living on borrowed time.
