Dogs: In foster with another small dog and doing great
In a Nutshell: Davos is a young guy who exudes a composure beyond his years, described by his foster guardian as “an unbothered king”. This sweetheart loves to snuggle and to play, has done great in his crate, and is very food motivated and responsive to training – we can’t wait to see what new tricks (and treats!) he’ll pick up in his future adoptive home.
Davos arrived to us in Portland with a skin infection causing some fur loss that has since cleared up with antibiotics however our partnered veterinarians determined that he also has Legg-Perthes Disease – a condition that occurs when the blood supply to the femoral head is interrupted. This disease is a hereditary condition of small breeds like Davos and causes the hips to deteriorate. To treat Legg-Perthes disease, dogs typically need an FHO surgery which Davos received while in OTAT’s care. He has been resting and healing well while in foster since then but will benefit from adopters scheduling physical therapy for him to fully restore comfortable mobility in his hips!
