Named after the Egyptian god, Osiris is showing us how strong he is every day. In the ancient stories, Osiris was torn apart only to be put back together by his love. Similarly, Osiris the pup was brought into rescue after being broken and hoping to be put back together again! Entering with two splints and wraps on his back legs-fitting as his namesake is also attributed with inventing mummy’s.
SEPR received an emergency call from a local vet about a 6 month old puppy being hit by a car and surrendered to the clinic to due financial issues from his former owners. Knowing this young pup had two bi-lateral tibia breaks that needed repair, there was a concern about a possible amputation. After his successful surgery in late September, he has shown what a strong fighter he is. He has worked hard to get through difficult months of recovery and rehabilitation, and now is enjoying being a healthy puppy and exploring with his new legs.
Being injured at such a young age, Osiris really missed out on being a puppy. Once he was fully cleared from post-operative restrictions, he could finally start to experience life as it was meant to be. Learning proper manners, how to walk on a gentle leader and leash, finally getting to have canine play-mates…everything a normal puppy gets to experience. Osiris didn’t waste any time, he was a quick learner when it came to his basic commands, and leash manners.
Perhaps his favorite activity of all is playing in the yard with his foster siblings. Osiris has learned to look to his canine siblings for cues, watching them learn new commands and mimicking them, playing tug or romping around the yard with them. Osiris can also entertain himself with his favorite bone to chew on snuggled up on the couch…or maybe with his pink lawn flamingo...or a Kong Wobbler. While he is able to entertain himself, Osiris would love a female companion to keep him active.
Osiris has a few other favorite activities he has discovered, and fetch is one of them, he will play fetch as long as you could possibly want…and don’t worry about letting go of the ball…Osiris knows drop it is part of the game. There’s just so many things to experience and so little time, but it’s important to remind Osiris to take time to relax. Like most kids sometimes he needs a good nap, but if it means being next to his humans big or little, Osiris is more than happy to get a good nap in.
It’s hard not to fall in love with Osiris beautiful green eyes and engaging personality. Everyone he meets is enamored with his demeanor and good looks. He is a great partner at the pet store, on a walk, and is gaining confidence at some of your favorite local breweries and restaurants. Osiris is working hard to be the best little buddy for his next forever home. If you believe you have all the time and patience to devote to continued training of a puppy then this could be your man.
