I love exploring the outdoors (on leash when walking on the sidewalk) and I need a small amount of exercise. At home, I like to play fetch and to chew on my Kong toy. I love being cuddled, petted and will readily go over onto my back for a belly rub. I hope you don’t mind kisses, because I’m known for giving lots of them and welcoming my family home with great enthusiasm. I’m a very smart little girl who knows who I need to sit for and who I can jump up on in our house. My owners would tell you that my ears are the key to my personality. They tell the story of when I am happy, curious, alert, or sleepy.
I had an accident (a concussion but no broken bones) a month ago and I am now on anti-seizure medication, which my owners give me 3 times a day. The vet says that I will be slowly weaned off of it. When I had my accident, I was taken immediately to the vet at the Lower Mainland Emergency Clinic where they watched me carefully. I had mild seizures for 3 days until I was prescribed the medication I am currently on. Since then, I have not had a single seizure. I have also been visiting the vet regularly to make sure I am healing just fine. And my owners say the accident has not affected my personality at all – I am still as energetic and affectionate as before. I also obey all the same commands (sit, high five, focus, etc.).
I need a new home because starting September, there will be some changes in my owners’ life that will make it very hard to ensure that someone is home to administer my medication at the right time every day. Although I will be weaned off the meds at some point, my owners don’t want to take any chance when it comes to my health. Although I am crate trained and have no separation anxiety at all, I hope to be in a home with another gentle dog for a companion or where someone is home most of the day so I don’t get lonely. I am a much loved and loving pet and my family is the only family I have ever known. They are heartbroken to have to rehome me but to ensure my well-being, they are willing to give me up. They are also offering to provide 3 months’ worth of medication to my new owners.
I am completely up to date with my vaccinations and have been spayed and micro-chipped. My adoption fee is $500.
