Introducing Susky! This adorable little pup came to APA! with paralysis in his hips and hind legs, but he's not letting that discourage him at all. He's a happy puppy who loves to eat and play. And he LOVES PEOPLE! He wants to cuddle with them and get their head scratches.

In his foster home, this energetic Husky is getting along well with all of their resident dogs and he's very well-mannered around their children. He's curious about their cats and wants to play with them, but he does respect their space.

Susky is making progress using his wheelchair. He's also content to relax in his x-pen and is happy to quietly stay there when his fosters are away. When they're home, he always wants to be with them. He also loves playing with toys, tossing them in the air and scooting toward them.

This fun-loving boy will need a home with parents who can continue helping him adapt to his wheelchair and helping him with his urinary and fecal incontinence. A carpet-free home will be best.

While Susky requires more assistance than the average pup, the love he has to give is more than worth it. Do you have room in your heart for sweet Susky? Come meet this boy. He'll gaze at you with his gorgeous crystal blue eyes!

PUPPIES AND OTHER HIGHLY-ADOPTABLE DOGS DISCLAIMER:

Puppies and other highly-adoptable dogs (small dogs or desirable-breed dogs) at APA! are very high in demand and usually have several interested adopters. Inquiring about a dog, meeting a dog, and even applying for a dog does not guarantee that you will be able to adopt the dog. Only one household will be able to adopt each dog, which means all other interested households will inevitably and unfortunately be disappointed. Please consider this in your search and set your expectations accordingly. Please also consider that adult dogs do not typically have competing adopters, and they need furever homes, too! Additionally, APA! does not allow the adoption of dogs who are related (e.g., littermates or mom and pup) to the same household for behavioral reasons.
