found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.
1/17/2009 - Pebbles had surgery on both her back knees on Thrusday and she is doing very well!!
1/6/08 - Pebbles has not had her knee surgeries yet. We are hoping to have them done in the next week or two and are hoping the doctor can do both at the same time. We did have to increase Pebbles seizure medicine since she had two seizures in one week over the Christmas holiday. She was on a very low dosage because it seemed too strong for her at the beginning. Hopefully the new dosage will help keep the seizures at bay. Pebbles acts like such a puppy with all her energy and wanting to play all the time. She will stand on the other pups in her foster home and pull on their ears to get them to play. She sometimes ends up annoying the others, but they do play with her most of the time. If none of the pups will play with her, she then comes and barks at you to play with her. She loves tugging on toys or just chewing on your fingers since she doesn't have any teeth anymore. We tend to wonder if she isn't much younger than originally thought. She is a very sweet little girl that doesn't have a problem telling you when she wants something, the only problem is figuring out exactly what she wants!
10/23/08 - Pebbles is back to normal!!! Pebbles is doing wonderfully. She is back to her perky little self again. Bouncy as ever! This means that we have gotten the dosage of Phenobarbital right and that it is suppressing her seizures. She hasn't had a seizure since the day after she started taking the phenobarbital. She loves people and other pups. She hasn't had an accident in the house since she first came to stay with us. She hasn't chewed on anything, except for tugging on a toy occasionally, but then again, she doesn't have any teeth left anymore, so she really cannot damage much. She is such a sweet happy little girl that just wants a wonderful home to call her own. We will need to talk to the doctor to see what we should do about her knees since she does have seizures. They are pretty bad and have locked up on her a few times and when she bounces around or runs she holds the worst of the two up. We will keep you updated on next steps with Pebbles. If you think Pebbles is the right pup for you, please fill out an application for her.
10/14/08 - Well, poor little Pebbles is having some more problems. Since last week she has had 4 seizures that we have witnessed. At first we were just hoping it was a side effect of the anesthesia, which can happen within the first 24 to 48 hours, but she has had more seizures after that as well. Without knowing her history, we do not know if she has had seizures in the past or not, but since they are not going away, it is likely that she has. We are not sure if she had seizures while we were not around in the first two weeks we have had her either. She has now been started on Phenobarbital, which is a medication for seizures. She will remain on this the rest of her life. She will need to go in and have her blood checked every couple of months to ensure the medication isn't causing trouble with her organs. Please keep Pebbles in your thoughts and prayers. Hopefully once the medicine kicks in her seizures will stop.
10/10/08 - Poor little Pebbles, she ended up losing the remainder of the teeth she had left yesterday. Her teeth were just so bad, they couldn't remain. Most of her bone had receded, so they weren't being held in by much. She has been in quite a bit of pain and has done a bit of moaning and groaning. Even with all the pain, she is drinking water and has eaten some soft food. She is on two pain medications and an antibiotic. I am sure she will recover quickly and be as good as new after getting all those infected teeth out of her mouth.
9/29/08 - We saw the vet today, and Pebbles is a very healthy girl except for her teeth and her knees. Her teeth are very nasty and will be cleaned next week. Not sure how many she will come out with since a number of them are loose right now. She may end up a toothless wonder, we are not sure. Her back knees are pretty bad as well. She holds up her left back leg up when she runs, which is a good indication there is something wrong. You can also see her knee cap click in and out of place when she walks and actually bends her legs. She will be good as new once they are fixed. We will need to raise the money to help fix Pebbles little knees, so any help would be greatly appreciated!
9/26/08 - Please say hello to Pebbles! She is a vibrant 8 year-old happy little 5lb. yorkie! She has a little bit of a sneeze, but that could be from her very dirty teeth. She gets along great with other pups. In fact, she gets very excited to see other dogs and has to check them out right away while wagging her tail in excitement. She also loves people. She is such a happy little girl that wags her tail all the time.
Pebbles seems pretty much house trained, but we will know more the longer she is with us. We have noticed that she will hold one of her back legs up when she runs, so we will be talking to the vet about that. She is scheduled to be checked on Monday 9/29/08, at which time we will let everyone know what the vet has to say about this cute little girl!
