    Equal parts sweet, sassy and tough!

    Meet Kenzo! Also known as Kenny, KenKen, Kenzo bear, little man, and “please don’t poop on my heat register!” You might recognize this handsome young man from AARCS social media pages. He’s somewhat of a celebrity these days and won’t let you forget it! He’s had a rough start to life but his charming personality could win over even the coldest of hearts.

    Little Kenzo’s puppy curiosity got the better of him and he unfortunately lost a fight with a vehicle, resulting in injuries to the right side of his body. His rear leg was surgically repaired by one of Calgary’s best orthopedic surgeons and he’s working diligently (ie: sassing his foster mom the whole time) on his physiotherapy in hopes of regaining some function. He also experienced trauma to the nerves in his front leg and currently doesn’t have any feeling or function below his elbow. The surgeon who cared for him is hopeful that he will regain function, but only time will tell. His road to recovery is far from over but his foster Mom and the AARCS team is committed to giving him the best shot possible.

    For now, Kenzo has settled in to his foster home for what he expects will be a long and annoying rehabilitation journey. Being the rambunctious puppy that he is, he’s already mastering a modified army crawl and is experimenting with short bursts of hopping around on 2 legs…adorable but not very graceful! He shares a home with 2 dogs and a cat without any problems and can’t wait to be able to keep up with the big dogs one day! In the meantime you can find him snuggled up to his big brother Hank or on his foster mom’s lap.

    Keep an eye on AARCS social media pages for updates on this little man’s progress!
