Leila Is not ready for adoption yet. Leila was brought into the Animal Emergency Center in Memphis on September 4th, 2016 by a good Samaritan that said she had been hit by a car. The AEC did radiographs and found a luxated carpus, but no fractures. They put a cast on her and the swelling was going down. We were hoping that she would not need surgery per their veterinarian, but he did advise us to have a second opinion when the cast was ready to be taken off in 2 weeks. We picked her up on September 8th, 2016 and she went to her new foster home with Stephanie & Luke. We sent the radiographs to Dr. Ledbury at Hillcrest Animal Hospital and brought Leila in for an examination on September 26th, 2016 and he immediately said that Leila needed surgery to put pins in her leg to repair the injury. Leila had surgery on September 28th and everything went great. Dr. Ledbury thinks she will have a full recovery and we are keeping our paws crossed! The surgery was $1058.00 and we desperately need help with this bill. We have set up a PoundsWishes fundraiser, you can also paypal directly to the rescue at firstname.lastname@example.org OR you can mail a check to Hogan’s Husky Heroes Rescue, 1519 Union Avenue, Suite 186, Memphis, TN 38104. If you are sending paypal donation or mailing check please write that the donation is for Leila. Thank you for everyone’s help and support we greatly appreciate it!
All of our rescues are temperament tested around children of all ages, small and large dogs and cats. They all have basic training, IE; sit; down, come and walking on a lead. We are not a shelter, we are a rescue and all of our rescued dogs are kept in individual foster/volunteers homes. This gives them sometimes their first taste of having a family and being part of that family. Also, it provides us with the understanding of each individual rescue to match them to your family lifestyle and dynamics. As soon as we receive your application back, we will phone you to set up a home visit/meet & greet. If you are out of our area, we would request another rescue and/or veterinary office complete the home visit.
All of our rescues are completely vetted prior to adoption. Also, completed prior to adoptions are heartworm treatments as needed, any medical conditions treated (IE; allergies, demedex, etc.) and any surgeries for dogs coming into the rescue injured (IE; car accidents, etc.). Below is the vetting that all of our rescues receive prior to adoption. We only pull dogs from shelters and approximately 80% of our rescues come into the rescue heartworm positive. Those rescues are treated for heartworms prior to adoption.

We do complete home visits prior to being approved. They are not designed to turn adopters down, but to point out safety issues for this breed. If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
