Unfortunately Pixel did suffer what the vet suspects was some sort of back injury prior to being rescued. After extensive testing all came back normal, Pixel was diagnosed with what is most likely a bulging disc. But that doesn't stop her from being the happiest, most loving dog you could ever hope to meet. We have started her on joint supplements to strengthen her back and she does occasionally take pain medication, primarily when she has played too hard or over-exerted herself in some way. However, with supervision and placing limits on rambunctious behavior her need for these medications is becoming less and less. Luckily, other than children, Pixel also LOVES belly rubs and stuffed toys so when its time for her to get a little R&R she's perfectly happy to chill with her toys or get some belly scratches from her people.
Pixel is making great strides with her crate-training and house manners in general and is a constant source of joy for her foster family. She is also working on basic obedience commands and leash walking. Pixel is up to date on all vaccinations and preventatives, heartworm negative, spayed and microchipped. If you're looking for the whole package Pixel just might be your girl!
