Facts about Heaven Leigh

  • ID#: 31594014
Heaven Leigh is a young Chihuahua who is looking for a patient and understanding family who can help her with her special needs. Shhh, don't tell her she's special needs as she thinks she's just like every other dog. She's very much a puppy and has the energy and excitement that goes along with her age.

Her vision is impaired but she can see although she sees a bit differently than everyone else. She has some neurological issues that cause her back end to not work quite right. She can walk although she's a bit awkward as her back legs don't always hold her up. When she gets really excited her back legs can't keep up with her so she zooms around by scooting!

She does need to wear diapers unless she's in a place that it won't matter if she goes potty. She does some excitement peeing and doesn't appear to have control of either her bladder or bowels. We're hoping as she gets older she may gain some control.

Is there someone out there that has the love and patience for this adorable little girl?

About AHeinz57 Pet Rescue & Transport, Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

AHeinz57 Pet Rescue & Transport, Inc. is a 501(c)3, non-profit animal welfare organization based in Adel, Iowa. In addition to caring for our local strays, we are working to bridge the gap between traditional animal shelters and no-kill rescues in 2 different ways: 1) By providing free transportation for dogs and cats from traditional shelters to no-kill rescues all over the Midwest and Canada. We also provide overnight rest stops for our furry travelers and temporary housing for those whose time has run out at the shelters, but have to wait for a foster spot to open up in one of the rescues; 2) By pulling as many dogs out of traditional shelters that are on death row and placing them in foster homes and forever homes thru our organization.

AHeinz57 Pet Rescue & Transport, Inc. is a foster-based organization. We do not have a building where animals are housed. Our adoptable pets can be viewed online at:
