A WONDERFUL SPECIAL NEEDS PUPPY: 7 - 8 months old / Currently 37 lbs. Meet me Saturdays at 1 of our 2 Kennesaw locations from 11-4pm. Check for my location at www.mostlymutts.org after 5pm on Fridays. I'm a wonderful pup who's had a hard start to life, but I don't let anything get me down as I'm full of life! I came to Mostly Mutts with a broken back and unable to use my back legs at all but I've gotten a little use back. I'm trying very hard to walk, and have gotten to the point that I can push myself up to standing which is helping me build strength in my legs. I don’t think I’ll ever be able to walk, but my wheelchair has been ordered and I’ll start using it in early August! Yay me! I also had no bowl or bladder control, but that's coming along too! I do wear a diaper but tend not to go in it a lot. My foster family takes me outside and removes my diaper and then I'll go as soon as it comes off. I don't know if I'll ever really be able to not wear a diaper, so you must be willing to change them and keep me clean. I love all people and they love me too and being with people and other animal friends is the best! I like cuddling with both human and canine alike! I also like going outside with my people as that's where we do some therapy with my family helping me stand and use my legs. I can get better traction outside and am motivated to explore! It's great fun. I can also practice my therapy with you on the carpet. We find that wearing a diaper and a toddler onesie gives my back support and may help me have better strength, but I’m outgrowing the onesie’s so a thunder shirt could be helpful with a little back support. I must stay slim to protect my back, so not too many treats for me please and I should be adopted by a family with no stairs or with someone who can carry me up and down stairs. I am not in pain either, so that’s great! You can contact Tammy for more information about me at 770-314-8974. Like all pups, I'll require a devoted owner who will take the time to train me so I'll grow up to be a polite and well-trained adult dog. My best friend is Iggy who has similar back issues as me, so if you happen to want 2 wonderful special needs doggies, MM's will let you adopt both of us for one adoption fee. Energy level: Currently 2 – 4, but should be a little higher the stronger I get. I'm spayed, micro-chipped and current on my shots. My adoption fee is $275.00.
