Dog of The Day: Bart From Arizona Humane Society!
Why Bart, a Siberian husky mix, dared to venture onto the freeway still remains a mystery. One thing is for sure, if the Arizona Humane Societyâ€™s EAMT didnâ€™t rescue him he wouldnâ€™t have turned off on the correct exit let alone made if off the highway alive.
After being hit by a car, Bart was in bad shape and suffered from head trauma and serious wounds all over his body. After being rushed to the Second Chance Animal Hospitalâ„¢ Bartâ€™s future started to look a little brighter. His wounds were cleaned and the x-rays proved that the blow he took from the car thankfully hadnâ€™t done any damage.
He spent several weeks recovering, and with just a few lingering scars left to remind him of his past he is ready to embrace the future and find a new home.
The only difference between a puppy and a one-year-old dog like Bart is that one-year-olds are a little less clumsy. Bart would agree with any pup that galloping in the yard is exhilarating and toys that squeak are the best invention ever. He will need some basic training, plenty of chew toys and lots of playtime to keep him out of mischief.
He is always eager to meet other dogs, but a dog introduction is required since he may be too boisterous for some canines.
He is available NOW at the Arizona Humane Societyâ€™s Nina Mason Pulliam Campus for Compassion located at 1521 West Dobbins Road in Phoenix. His adoption fee is $110. This fee includes his neuter surgery, vaccines, a colorful collar and leash, an AHS I.D. tag and a follow-up veterinary exam. For more information about Bart, please call (602) 997-7586 ext. 1045 and ask for animal ID number A293588 or log on to www.azhumane.org.
