Tosh-AKA Siris was taken into NADSR's care back in August 2017 as an almost one-year-old adolescent. He was a stray found by a good Samaritan who took him in and temp fostered him. NADSR was then notified of a Dutch shepherd in need very thin and limping.

We agreed to take him into NADSR. While in temp foster his foster mom mentioned at the time that he had a limp that would come and go and the veterinarians who had examined him were sure it was a torn ACL in need of surgery. --------
Shortly after his intake to his long term foster home we had him examined by a surgeon who explained that the tear was partial and he didn’t’ feel surgery was beneficial at that time but recommended he see a rehabilitation veterinarian because he suspected it would be needed to build proper muscle mass.------

Tosh-AKA- Siris was pending adoption and we decided to go ahead and ship him to his forever home where he could then receive consistent physical therapy with the adopter. The rehab vet after a month of working with adopter and Siris determined that she felt Siris had re-injured himself and that she now believed it to be a full blown tear.-----

After Yet another Vet appointment and receiving additional X-rays besieds what his previous vet had stated and subsequent tests the diagnosis finally came.------

Siris suffers from An anterior cruciate ligament, or ACL. An injury that is a tear in one of the knee ligaments that joins the upper leg bone with the lower leg bone The ACL keeps the knee stable. But the worse news Is that Siris actually suffers dual ACL tears (both knees) and too was diagnosed with clinical hip dysplasia.-----

His first surgery is scheduled for January 18th and will be performed by an orthopedic surgeon. We will take care of one knee now and he will need another surgery in a few months after recovered from his first one.

The surgeon is generously offering a reduced fee for NADSR but Siris surgeries will still cost thousands of dollars and he will also need to undergo at least two months of rehabilitation post-surgery.

NADSR is committed to getting this happy and goofy boy healed and enjoying his adoptive home but we need your help.

Siris will remain with his current adoptive home through his surgery and rehab. We will continue to update on his progress after surgery.

He is a joyful dog full of so much love...please help us get him on the path to being a normal pain free dog in his adoptive home.
