Yukon is a beautiful, sweet, and outgoing Chocolate Lab. Yukon joined our program after being hit by a car and left to suffer with his injuries. Unattended to the outward wound healed however the fractures and orthopedic damage remained. You certainly couldn't tell that he was suffering by his spirit, but watch this young guy walk and try to play and we knew that we couldn't just allow him to heal as is,but he deserved the care he should have received from day one.
Yukons orthopedic injuries included a damaged femur and hip, torn ligaments and a compromised pelvis from accommodating for these painful injuries.
This guy is such a trooper! Yukon has gone through FHO surgery to repair the hip and femur and is doing awesome in his recovery. He will spend the next month undergoing physical therapy in the form of an underwater treadmill and Laser treatments and then he will be ready to undergo phase two of his rehab this will involve surgery on the opposite knee to repair his ligaments
Yukon has a wonderful orthopedic surgeon, primary veterinarian, and Doctor of Veterinarian Physical Rehabilitation overseeing all aspects of his care. All of his team are excited at his progress and fully expect Yukon to make a great recovery and have little if any impact in his physical ability to enjoy life as a young active Lab.
We hope you will follow his progress and support our rehabilitation efforts of the next few months. If you have serious interest in meeting Yukon please let us know and he would love to have a visitor!

You are asked to notify us when and by who this surgery will be performed. Our volunteers will verify that the dog has been spayed/neutered. If you fail to spay/neuter, as outlined in the adoption contract you signed, our organization will take appropriate measures to reclaim the dog.
