Polo’s story is getting a lot of positive attention, but Powell hopes that it will also bring attention to the situation that many other dogs experience in northern Canada.
Our handsome boy has broke free from the vet today and he's loving life! He's still in pain and definitely recovering…
There, the population of stray dogs, many of which are not vaccinated, brings danger to people as well as animals.
“The stray dog situation in northern Manitoba is a complete epidemic,” Powell said. “The real amazing thing is the awareness and attention finally being brought up.”
Hopefully, as Polo recovers, other dogs will be helped. Polo, and every other dog, deserves a second chance.
