    Chachi tangled with a porcupine and needed multiple surgeries to remove the quills. As a result of the quill damage Chachi’s front right leg was amputated, this very resilient boy was up and walking and doing stairs 12 hours after his amputation. He walks well with harness and leash and learns new tricks quickly especially if offered treats for encouragement

    “Hi I’m Chachi, don’t let my large size and blocky head fool you. I’m an absolute LOVE BUG, just look into my soft brown eyes and I’ll wag my tail. I came into AARCS Care after being quilled by a porcupine… He might have won the battle, but I won the hearts of the people around me! It took quite a while for the quills to come out, but I looked forward to every pet, scratch and lovin that came from my foster and caregivers. Unfortunately a quill migrated through my leg, I went into the vet clinic and came out with three legs. I’m all the better for it and it has not effected my happy go lucky personality! I do best with other dogs about my size, but do be mindful that with three legs, a highly energetic puppy may be too much for me to handle right away. I enjoy eating my meals away from other critters, so I have time to enjoy every last kibble. I have come across kittens when visiting the lovely staff at the vet hospital (I get the best care and lovins there!), they were having a RUFF day and I felt the need to give them some kisses.”

    Looking for my best friend!
