Dolce is All Better!

Some of you may remember when Harnessed to Hope Northern Breed Rescue took in a young Siberian Husky/Akita mix named Dolce in August of 2008 who had been hit by a car and had surgery. Dolce's long road to recovery included lots of crate rest and physical therapy, but he is finally finished! As of March 1st, 2009, Dolce is officially recovered and available for adoption! You can see his story below.

We are so happy that things worked out well for Dolce!

  4. Our Rescue had a similar case. Dakota our white husky found on the street half dead wasfound him barely alive. We took him to one of our vets who managed to stabilize him. Humane Society of Miami offered to treat him using a special fund they have set up. They then said he was too sick and asked us to take him back. We brought him back to the vet who determined him to have testicular cancer, arthritis of the spine and very bad hip dysplasia. The vet neutered him which would have taken care of the cancer, and gave him about a year to live.
    We decided to find him a hospice home that he could live out the remainder of his life in peace. After a short search we found a kind soul who agreed to take him in and care for him, making him as comfortable as possible. The person lived in the Orlando area so transport was required to bring Dakota from Southern Florida to Central Florida. Plans were being finalized as he awaited his new home in the vet’s office.
    On Monday morning we received a phone call from the vet. Dakota lost his struggle for life and passed over the rainbow bridge during the night. We were not able to give him the peaceful ending we had wanted. Although we could not follow through with our plans, we know that he is no longer in pain. I know in my heart that he knows we were doing our best for him. You could tell by the way he would smother you with kisses each time we saw him or transported him from one place to another, in our mission of mercy.
    Dakota, our prayers are for you and I know you are up there wearing your golden harness, smiling down at us. Run free, run long and run fast. Peace be with you.

  5. So glad he has recovered.
