Tali has been adopted!
Tali came from an Indigenous reserve in Northern Ontario. She was rescued by a group that works with Northern communities. Save Me Rescue is proud to be a partner in finding amazing forever homes for puppies like Tali. Tali is a ‘Nordic mix’. They often have a combination of Husky, Shepherd and Lab in them but you never know quite what you are going to get! In our experience, Nordic mixes grow into dogs with lovely personalities who do best with active families.
The rescue was informed prior to her arrival that Tali had an injury to one of her legs and was limping. She was seen by one of our vets within days of arrival. X-rays showed that Tali did have fractures and had formed a boney callous which was acting as an internal cast. The X-rays were sent to the orthopaedic surgeon we work with and he has been following Tali’s progress. She was further evaluated early October and has been cleared for adoption. It was found that Tali’s leg is structurally sound, her muscle development is normal, her gait is good, and she is not in pain. There is no need for any surgical intervention and Dr. Levy feels there should not be any long term effects from this injury. It is possible that over time Tali could develop a mild valgus deformity (slight bend in her tibia) but once again the Doctor would not anticipate this to be of any consequence. Although Tali is eager to run and jump and play, it is best for her to have restricted activity and go on leash walks while she is still a rapidly growing pup and her leg continues to heal so well.
Tali has really blossomed in her foster home and loves to be near her foster family and foster fur siblings. She loves to cuddle and spend time on the couch. Everyone who has met her has commented on her extra soft coat and she loves all the attention and pets.
Tali is very sweet and smart. As with any puppy, she does get too excited at times and will jump and mouth. Tali will do best in a home with older children, a large fenced in backyard, a family that is prepared to take her to training.
Tali is doing well with housetraining and goes to the back door to be let out and needs to go out every few hours. Tali’s family will need to be able to continue this and therefore she is looking for a family where someone is home part of the day.
Tali was said to be born on July 5.
