Huck is an English Bulldog who was surrendered to Harbor Point Animal Hospital in March of 2018 at just 3 months old. Huck suffers from Spina Bifida (a congenital spinal cord malformation) and is incontinent of bowel and bladder. Because of his condition, Huck wears diapers and must have his bladder manually expressed. Dr. Laity (and all of the staff at Harbor Point) quickly fell in love with this sweet boy and adopted him. Since March, Huck has undergone spinal surgery to help prevent his symptoms of weakness and incontinence from progressing. In his free time Huck loves playing with his sisters Barley (an English Lab) and Layla (a boxer) and all things peanut butter!
