This handsome boy was found as a stray, discarded in a ditch, by a Canadian while travelling in Greece. He was thus named Meteo, due to the geographic location, and was covered in ticks and perhaps only 4/5 weeks old. His rescuer took him to be vetted and left him in the care of a facility until he could arrive in Canada. We welcomed him recently but noticed he had a very unusual gait, diagnosed as Rickets, a deficiency of vitamin D as well as a balanced diet. Our partner vet had seen such cases before and prescribed him a diet of large breed puppy food and limited exercise, saying that this is quite curable in puppies as they continue to grow. He has been well cared for in his foster home and luckily, his foster mom has been chronicling his journey week by week, and we are overjoyed at his continued improvement. Meteo is very affectionate and has bonded quickly with his family, the children in particular. He gets on well with cats and his foster brother, Jasper and is crate trained. He is leash reactive with other dogs and that is being worked on. Meteo is now looking for his new family and would love one with a fenced yard. Children would be a lovely addition as would another dog in the family. HTDR will continue to cover his follow up vetting (bloodwork) until he is fully grown, and his neuter, which will be scheduled in April 2024.
