About Caleb

Caleb came to Forever Husky because a volunteer at the Humane Society he came from was concerned about his health. He was vomiting and not gaining any weight. Because of this volunteers commitment to helping Caleb she contacted us. After talking to the volunteer we promised we would do everything possible to help him. Initially we took him to our regular vet and discovered anomalies with his blood work and x-rays. Our vet recommended we seek expert advice. Because of our positive experience with University of Wisconsin Madison School of Veterinary Medicine we took Caleb there as soon as possible. He spent a week up there and after many many tests it was discovered Caleb has Muscular Dystrophy...not common in dogs (especially huskies) but not unheard of. Because of the effects of "M.D." Caleb has an enlarged liver and his heart muscle does not function properly-he is on medication to help him with his heart function. His muscle structure in general is slight compared to other dogs and always will be but...he is a happy boy. Caleb has the absolutely sweetest disposition and He loves his friend Laurel-he plays with her frequently until he gets tired and then he rests. He loves his toys and will hold them if a someone approaches to let them know they belong to him. We don't know how long Caleb will be with us but we promise to love him and make sure he gets the best care available.
