Name: Kota
Age: 2 years, 1 month
Breed: Siberian Husky Mix

Kota comes with free post-adoption support!

Kota is the bright-eyed bushy-tailed bestie you need in your life. She has that sunny and warm energy that will get you through the winter. She’ll also drag your butt outside and dive headfirst into the snow. She expects you’ll follow her lead. She is gentle and intelligent, energetic and adventurous. Best of both worlds, she’ll be your couch companion and your trusted trail partner.

Kota is real smart and well-versed in the art of sit and shake, and naps. She loves her toys, her snacks, and meeting dogs at the park. She is a burst of fresh air, a kibble enthusiast and an aspiring athlete. She loves being around her humans, especially after a long day of activity. She poops herself right out and will find a spot next to you for her long, much-needed nap.

Kota also loves working with her Foster Parent on her rehab exercises. You see, Kota got off to a rough start as a puppy. At five-months old, she was hit by a car. Both her front and back legs were severely injured. Nerve damage here, a fracture there, plus a bent wrist joint that dragged on the floor. Poor girl.

Luckily, she was brought to Toronto Humane Society. It has been a long road to recovery, and it isn’t over yet. She is working with her Foster Parents every day on her rehab exercises. She also visits Toronto Humane Society’s rehab specialist for treatment. She has made strides thanks to her energy, intelligence, and her Foster’s commitment to getting her back on her paws! She loves being active. She loves exploring, playing, and enjoying life – she won’t let her past injuries stop her. She just did her first set of stairs! Go Kota!

That being said, her adopters must be willing (and able) to support Kota on her journey with regular visits to the vet and ongoing management of her physical challenges. In fact, she wears an orthotic device on her front limb that was custom-made just for her!

She has specialized therapy ahead of her and she will look to you for support in every sense of the word. She will continue to heal but will likely have a short back right leg and possibly some residual nerve damage in the front. So first and foremost, Kota needs humans who are ready to help her manage her physical issues. But don’t worry, you won’t be left to figure all this stuff out on your own. Kota comes with 4 complimentary follow-up rehab sessions with Toronto Humane Society’s own Rehab specialist. She’ll give you all the support you need to help get you off to a good start.

She also needs humans who enjoy having fun. Kota lives for fun. She will cure any seasonal slump you might be in by showing you how to properly enjoy winter. She LOVES the snow. She dives in, digs around, snacks on it, and buries her face in the snowbanks. Her energy level is increasing now that her injuries are improving.

Kota also has some tummy issues. She has what is called IBD (Inflammatory Bowel Disease) which is a long-term condition managed with consistent medications. She hopes her humans will help with her tummy and stay on top of her treatment.

Kota is everything you’d want in a dog – she loves making new friends and cheering people up. She is a handful, even with her injuries, and her stamina might leave you pooped. She is looking for some dedicated, outdoor-loving humans who can keep up with her as she spreads her doggy wings. Other dogs in the home? Great! Children? Well, supervised introductions first, please.
