In a rare occurrence for the MSPCA in Boston, a 10-week-old Pomsky recovering from a broken leg will soon be up for adoption, officials said.
The Pomsky, a cross between a Siberian husky and a Pomeranian, was dropped off by a breeder Wednesday at the MSPCA Animal Care and Adoption Center in Jamaica Plain.
The animal was in extreme pain after she broke her leg playing with the rest of the pups in her litter, the MSPCA said in a statement.
“Our shelter veterinarians administered pain medicine while awaiting results of the X-rays, which confirmed the fracture,” Anna Rafferty-Foré, associate director of the MSPCA’s Boston adoption center, said in the statement.Get Metro Headlines in your inbox:The 10 top local news stories from metro Boston and around New England delivered daily.Sign Up
The MSPCA said it doesn’t see many Pomskys passing through its center.
Tahani, as the shelter has named her, is being fostered at the home of an adoption center manager so she can have a quieter environment.
“She’s undergoing weekly bandage and splint changes to give her leg time to heal. Fortunately, it appears for now as if she won’t need surgery,” the statement said.
She will wear a splint for four weeks and then be up for adoption, the MSPCA said.
