Special Needs Great With Other Animals
Hi! My name is Violet! I am a 2 year old female American Eskimo. I was born in a puppy mill and was given to the rescue because I had a chronic sinus infection and I could not be sold to a pet store. The rescue found that I had a birth defect in my nasal passageways and I had to have reconstructive surgery so I could breathe normally. To date I have had 4 surgeries to repair the defect. Recently they placed a permanent stent in my passageways to help keep the airway open, but sadly it did not work and had to be removed. The stent caused a whole new problem, giving me a cleft pallet. I am on a liquid diet for two weeks and man does it suck! They are hoping it heals on its own, but I might need another surgery to sew my soft pallet together again. And because we roved the stent holding open my airway, the bane in my pallet might grow over the hole again! If that happens I might need a permanent trachea tube! Boo! Despite all of this I am an active girl that loves going for walks, going to the dog park, doing agility, and playing with other dogs. My dream home would be adopters that did a lot of hiking, had another active dog for me to play with, and a good sized yard to play in. I do get along well with other dogs, but would be okay as an only dog as long as I could go to the dog park and/or doggie day care. My dream home would be a home with an active veterinarian :) I am spayed, up to date on vaccinations, heartworm negative, and come with a basic obedience class. My adoption fee is $250.
