Bosco arrived at the Regina Humane Society (RHS) in late summer with a year-old hip fracture. Despite his goofy attitude and big smile, it was clear the two-year-old Labrador Retriever cross was hiding pain and struggling to walk normally. Following examination and x-rays, the RHS Veterinary team determined Bosco would need surgery to help him enjoy a good quality of life.
Fortunately for Bosco, he had a team standing with him on his road to recovery. This cheering squad extended far beyond the RHS and included the amazing staff at Indian Head Animal Clinic, who quickly stepped up and offered to provide Bosco’s surgery. After his operation, Bosco needed many weeks’ time to rest and recover. He went to stay with a devoted foster family, another key player in Bosco’s recovery – encouraging the energetic young dog, while showering Bosco with love and attention. His foster worked hard to get him ready for his forever home.
Fully recovered, Bosco came back to the Shelter in late October and waited patiently to find a family – fortunately he still had many people helping him on his journey. He even had a little help from a young girl who posted his story on her social media animal rescue page, which took his story even further. After just a few weeks, his special people found him and he knew he had found his soulmates. Now, Bosco is living his dream of a new family and the joy of pain-free running and playing! Thanks Team!
