BOSTON (CBS) – A rare breed of puppy is looking for a loving home after breaking her leg. The MSPCA-Angell’s Boston Adoption Center says Tahani was surrendered by a breeder because she couldn’t be sold with the injury.
Tahani is a 10-week-old chocolate brown “Pomsky” – an unusual combination of Pomeranian and Siberian Husky that shelter staff has only seen once before in the past five years. She likely broke her left hind leg while playing with her siblings or mother.READ MORE: UMass Lowell Closed Tuesday Due To 'Possible Cybersecurity Incident'
She arrived to the center on March 27 in pain and was immediately treated by veterinarians. The dog may not need surgery, but has to be in a splint while her recovery is monitored.READ MORE: Massachusetts Announces $1M 'VaxMillions' COVID Vaccine Lottery; 'If You're Not Vaccinated, You Can't Play'
Right now, Tahani is staying at adoption center manager Victoria Odynsky’s home.
“Taking her home was an easy decision because she’s so adorable, and because we felt recuperating in a quiet home instead of a noisy adoption center could only help with her healing,” she said.MORE NEWS: Fourth Stimulus Check: Will You Get Another Relief Payment?
Tahani will be up for adoption in the next few weeks after she is fully recovered. The MSPCA will announce her availability on Instagram, but anyone who is interested can email firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
