Turns out Stubby is NOT going to need an amputation. Dr. Flemme really fixed her up. Her leg was super infected– really really nasty, but Flemme re-did what the emergency vet had done and to everyone’s surprise, Stubby regained feeling in her leg. She still has a long way to go to heal, she doesn’t bear weight on the leg all of the time, but she’s a happy little girl. She’s officially a “pet” dog now. We’ll see how she is in the winter. Stubby loves to run– she was one of our best sled dogs. Perhaps she’ll be able to go on a 4 mile run or just run freely next to the sled.
