SISU is a 10 year old neutered husky mix who came to us when his owner passed away. He's a special boy looking for a special home. He's a gentle giant and just wants to be everyone's friend, even cats and most other dogs! Sisu lived mainly outside his entire life, so he has been working very hard at one of our staff members houses learning inside manners and is doing great! He came to us with an injury to his knee and a large mass behind his front leg making it painful and extremely hard for him to walk. His pain is managed with a prescription and a series of injections that the vet has prescribed. Despite everything life's thrown at him, Sisu is a sweet, affectionate, loving, playful boy who deserves the world and more.
