Petey has come light years since he was pulled from the shelter and we would love to see him go to a forever home where he can get all the attention! Petey is walking around great now (he has never even used his wheelchair at all) and takes his daily meds which help him tremendously. He loves life and says he is not going any where anytime soon! Please consider adopting this super sweet guy so he can retire in the lap of luxury!
Hi! I am Petey! I am an 8 yr old Chinese Crested Powder Puff with rheumatoid arthritis. I was picked up as a stray by our local animal control, I was microchipped but my owners did not want to come and take me back home. My foster mom has Chinese Cresteds and when she saw me at the shelter she just had to rescue me. While at the shelter I couldn't walk and they were not sure if I was injured or had arthritis. My foster mom took me to vet, they did x-rays and found out I have rheumatoid arthritis in all my bones and joints. It is very painful just like in people but I don't let it get me down at all!! The vet was so surprised what a trooper I was because I do not even act like it hurts, that is because I love life and I am not going to let anything get me down! I am now on medications for pain control, and meds to help keep my RA at bay and am doing great. I even walk around and try to follow my foster dad everywhere. My foster mom decided it would help me out a ton in I had a wheelchair since I just want to go go go, so she says I will be running around like hell on wheels very soon.
If you would like to sponsor me or donate to my continued care that would be awesome and we would be forever grateful!
