Facts about Pickles - SPECIAL NEEDS

  • Breed: Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) Mix
  • Color: White
  • Age: Young

  • ID#: 9736433

Little Pickles was found running in the middle of a neighborhood street by a man riding his bike. When the man approached her, she seemed disoriented and confused. She was not wearing a collar or ID tag. To keep Pickles safe, the man took her home. He posted FOUND DOG signs around the neighborhood but sadly, no one responded.

Pickles is a SPECIAL NEEDS dog. She has been diagnosed with congenital Hydrocephalus. This birth defect causes an excess of cerebrospinal fluid that has leaked inside the skull, leading to brain swelling. This leads to increased pressure within the skull that presses on the sensitive brain tissues. Increased intracranial pressure can lead to permanent, irreversible brain damage and possibly even death. At this time, little Pickles exhibits some of the typical clinical signs of hydrocephalus: circling, head tilting, loss of vision, pacing and seizures.

In spite of her condition, Pickles is very inquisitive, friendly and loves to climb into your lap and be cuddled. She likes cats and enjoys being around other dogs but doesn't really know how to play with them. Pickles has no problem entertaining herself ; she loves toys! Balls are her favorite.

It takes a very special person to adopt a special needs pet. If you have the desire and the ability to provide a safe and loving home to little Pickles, please call or text Stephanie at 281-622-6549.

Estimated birth date: February 2015

Approximate weight: 8 lbs.

Our Adoption Process...

1. Application
An adoption application is required, providing information about your family, as well as past and current pets.
2. Vet check
You give us permission to contact your veterinarian regarding current and/or past pets. You must have a good vet history, showing that you are a responsible pet owner.
3. Home visit
A home visit will be scheduled.
• To adopt a dog, you must have a fenced area. We will check it to make sure there are no escape routes. We will not leave a dog with you unless problem areas are fixed.
• To adopt a cat, the home environment must be safe for the cat. There needs to be a place where the cat can be isolated for several days until the new cat & current pets can get used to each other.
4. Trial run
There will be a minimum of a one week trial at your home, to make sure that the pet you have chosen is a good match with your family. If the pet does not work out, for whatever reason, we will take the pet back.
5. Adoption finalization
When we all agree that the pet is a good match with your family, the adoption can be finalized. An adoption contract is signed. You must promise to be a responsible and loving pet owner for the entire life of your new pet.
6. Adoption fees
• Dogs - $150
• Cats - $100
This fee helps defray the cost of vetting but by no means covers all the money already spent on your new pet. All rescues are completely vetted: all shots up-to-date, spayed/neutered and parasite free. (Dogs) are micro-chipped, heartworm negative and currently taking a heart worm preventative. (Cats) are tested and negative for FIV and FELV. Other health issues may also have been treated and you will get a history of anything that’s been done.
