Husky Labrador cross in northern BC horribly injured in attack by another dog

A dog with a severe leg injury was surrendered to the BC SPCA , but he's on the mend and will be soon available for adoption.

Dobby, a two-year-old husky and Labrador mix, was attacked by another dog so his owner brought him to a veterinarian in BC's South Peace region, according to an RCMP media release. He had a large wound on his leg exposing the bone, muscles and tendons.

The owner decided to stop treatments after nine days and surrendered Dobby to the BC SPCA.

“We agreed to take on the remaining veterinary costs, as he had been through so much,” Chelsea Blackwell with the SPCA said in the release.

Blackwell said Dobby’s leg is healing well and he has a sweet personality.

“His talkative husky side came out when his leg was put in a splint. He thought it was important to tell everyone he was not fond of it,” Blackwell said.

Dobby should be ready for adoption in two to three weeks.
