Nubz: Happily ever after!
It's been exactly one year since we started telling you about NUBZ, a chow-husky mix puppy rescued from a puppy mill situation, after his stressed mother chewed his hind feet off.
Chow Chow Rescue of CNY arranged the transport, and arranged for his fostering with a woman in Philadelphia who specializes in special needs rescues. Carla Boyd socialized him, and got him into physical therapy, and also arranged for orthopedic boots.
Here's a look back at his journey, and how he's doing now:

Nubz is now living with his family, which includes a chow. He still gets physical therapy, and his boots need to be refitted on a regular basis. His dad has started a Facebook Page, which has thousands of followers. If you'd like to send a card or a message to Nubz:
