Tapatuk is a beautiful dog who we first met during our sterilization clinic in Kangirsuk with Chiots Nordiques. During the clinic, she was examined, sterilized and vaccinated. Something also appeared to be wrong with her leg and she needed further testing.  

To get her the help that she needed, Tapatuk was surrendered by the community and we took her in at our Trauma Rehabilitation Centre near Montreal, Québec. X-rays and further examination revealed that Tapatuk suffered from a major orthopaedic problem, among other things, and that she would require expensive treatments, including a surgery of several thousand dollars. 

Thanks to your support, Tapatuk was able to get  the surgeries she needed. After medical procedures, physiotherapy for her leg, and recovery, Tapatuk is now ready to find her forever home.
