Levi’s Road to Recovery and Snow

Levi, the husky, has had a hard start to life. He was rescued from Iran and flown through to Canada, where his new owner looked after him. Upon his first bath, his new owner could feel every bone in his body. He was frail and undernourished. Levi showed little interest in food and spent most of his days sleeping. His new owner grew more concerned as his lethargic behavior continued. After multiple veterinary visits and tests, Levi was diagnosed with a tick-borne disease. Thankfully, the disease was caught soon enough, and Levi could recover live to see snow.
