Facts about Seersha

  • Breed: Labrador Retriever/Pit Bull Terrier Mix
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 31616651
Seersha is affectionate, loves people, companionship, and time outside. She is good with people and has been consistently patient and gentle with our toddler and baby. She loves to be with "her people" and considers herself a lap dog. She is consistently friendly and loving. She'd do nearly whatever you ask to get a cuddle or a back scratch. She gets really excited when new people come over, but once you are familiar, she tries to entice you to play.

Seersha's back legs are paralyzed. She jumped up to a catch a ball one night, yelped with pain, and was paralyzed within four hours. A neurologist performed a surgery but unfortunately she is in the 5% of dogs for whom the surgery wasn't successful. She is miraculously fully continent and wags her tail!

Seersha loves to be active and is fully capable of doing all the things other dogs can do! She has a wheelchair for walks outside and she is FAST. She'd benefit from two walks a day and loves to run and play fetch. When she's in the house, she drags her legs like a seal and loves to chew toys and play fetch. She has recently learned how to climb up carpeted stairs, but needs to be carried up and down large flights of wooden stairs (she can manage 2-3 on her own).

Seersha's favorite activities (yup! even with paralyzed hind legs):

- Playing fetch
- Going for a walk or jog
- Snuggling on the couch

Her best personality traits:
- The way she looks at you when she brings you a toy for catch
- How cuddly she is when watching tv with her people.
- How she arches her neck and squints her eyes when you scratch her back and shoulder blades - like she's in heaven!
- How gentle she is with her foster/former owner's baby and how she licks his feet
