“We don't know if she was born this way or if it was from an injury early on,” Kathryn Horski, Cascade’s foster mom, told The Dodo. “She had difficulties walking at first and had to wear leg braces for a few weeks as she gained strength in her legs. She is now out of those, although will likely always be on the slightly clumsy side with a funny gait due to the injury.”
Due to her issues, Cascade is much, much smaller than a typical husky, and likely always will be. She is also missing her tail and is incontinent, and therefore has to wear diapers at all times, for the rest of her life, to prevent accidents. Her foster mom likes to dress her in cute outfits to keep her diapers on, and between her tiny size and adorable getups, Cascade is definitely one of the cutest dogs around.
