Weight: 7 lbs
Health: She came with really bad teeth that infected her left eye. She can no longer see out of that eye, but the infection is healed. All her teeth have been cleaned and infected teeth have been extracted. She feels much better now. Cee Cee has degenerative spondylolisthesis, which means that she has some vertebral nerve damage in her spine. She takes regular anti-inflammatory medication for pain. This has helped tremendously and she can now wag her tail more and jump up on her hind legs in typical Pommy style! Her rear legs will occasionally give out on her, but she gets around very well. New terrains are always a challenge, but she figures it out quickly. Other than this progressive condition, she is actually in pretty decent health for her age, which is estimated to be about 8-10 years.
Temperament: Cee Cee is a little shy at first; however, after a couple of days in her new environment she began to seek out her favorite human. She is actually quite loving. She prefers to sleep most of the day in an area out of the way of activity, but will hang out in the family room in the evenings. She is unable to jump up on furniture, but will cuddle with you if placed on the couch. She is otherwise quite content to be nearby in a cozy dog bed.
Where did she come from: She was a stray that was in horrible condition when found.
Ambitions: To find the perfect forever home.
Additional information: Cee Cee will do best in a home without small or rambunctious children due to her inability to see well or to get out of the way fast enough. She should also not be placed in a home with a swimming pool unless it is gated and/or she is supervised outside at all times!
