A Male Nordic mix presently Available For Adoption

Wilvur is one-year-old Nordic Paws Rescue who arrived at Animatch emaciated, lethargic and showing some signs of neurological issues.  He has undergone his Veterinary exam and it is believed that all the symptoms may be as a result of malnutrition/starvation in his puppyhood and adolescence.  Life in the North is not easy, as we have explained many times, and if a dog finds himself at the bottom of the pack or food chain, food might be very scarce.  Time will tell if he will make a full recovery or if he will have some lasting effects.  Wilvur is a lucky fellow in that he is getting some one-on-one attention from his Foster Mom and Dad.  His dull, dry fur is improving and no doubt he will one day have a lustrous coat.  He gets along with the other dogs although they do not seem to pay much attention to him; he has made it clear that he would prefer a feline free home.  One pastime he does enjoy is going for walks; he does have an odd gait but he gets to where he wants to go without a problem.  Wilvur is sensitive to touch and seems to flinch when he is first petted; no worries though, when he is ready he’s a world-class cuddler.  Of course, toilet training is completely foreign to him and he will need patience and consistency.  Wilvur will be returning to the Vet soon to be re-evaluated and Animatch will share the news.  In the meantime, Wilvur still needs a family – one that is compassionate and empathetic to his possible needs.  Please fill in the Adoption Form and ask for Wilvur.
