Who said being little has its advantages. Up until recently it really didn't give me a "leg up".

You see I lived with my poodle mom and our human mom in a home, not really going anywhere, few visitors or even having any alone time. Sadly my human mom was low mobility and as a pup my back foot got run over in what was called "the wheelchair incident". Yep, no real vet care and a crush injury can make it hard on a little guy. My foot has healed but I only have one "toe" and sometimes bone splinters work their way through but my vet says that is normal. I wouldn't be what you call a long walks kinda guy but I get around ok. Well I should clarify that, I now get around ok.

My first foster mom noticed something funny about my walk and after my foot issue was figured out she just knew something else wasn't right. After a second, higher, set of x-rays they found I had Legg Perthes. A big word for a hip joint with no blood supply. My ball, of the ball and socket needed removal, it had broken into pieces. But this story does get better.
I am a glass half full guy. I have an awesome rescue that kept seeking answered and I am on the mend after FHO surgery. No more pain and I am gaining strength back in that hip. Of course it was not the same leg as the tow incident but it is what it is. I have had two awesome fosters that have worked with me on my rehab. They also know a lot about me to share.

I don't really like staying alone, I am pint sized so I can travel well. My foster mom says lesson learned as when left alone I first tore up some puppy pads then my own bed. Oops. I haven't had to stay alone much but it's necessary from time to time and of course foster mom feels I need to be more comfortable with it.

She says: " I guess he was left rarely and when so there were dog(s) with him which is not the case here. More use to women and kind of a one person dog initially. An ideal home would have someone that can be with him a lot or if there is another dog in the home that would be good if the folks work. I know he got along with Janet's dog (first foster) very well. He is a sweetie and has done very well with his surgery recovery."

Housetraining is going well but I may need some tweaking, I am just under 6 lbs, almost 2 years old and all poodle.

About Pooches & Purrs Cooperative - Allentown

About Our Rescue Group...

Pooches & Purrs Cooperative is a group of rescues and individual rescuers that are working hard to find loving homes for the dogs, cats, kittens and puppies that find their way into our care through no fault of their own. Each individual or group has several wonderful dogs In Tennessee, Alabama or Kentucky looking for homes! All of them are completely vetted and neutered/spayed (if age appropriate) and on heartworm protection. All of them come with complete medical records. Their adoption fee of $500 covers their complete age appropriate vetting and heartworm preventative as well as their transportation to your area.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our rescues don't have an actual shelter building in the New England area. Due to this it is not always possible to meet them prior to their adoption. At times, a dog may be in foster care in New England and their bio will clearly be marked as such so you will know. These southern dogs & cats are brought up to their new owners weekly! We have a 14 day money back guarantee and the pet can be rehomed appropriately if things don't work out. Each group tries hard to get good matches in your homes so that everyone has a happy life together! To date the cooperative has placed over a two thousand dogs and puppies, cats and kittens in loving New England homes! Each group has many, many, references of happy adopters up in your area that can fill you in on their experience. Just email and they can pass along that information for your convenience. Thanks!
