Dante is one of the sweet spirits. He has gone through so much and still has an amazing personality. He does have a quirk, though.
Dante was hit by a car as a puppy and never brought to the vet. He back legs were badly broken, but he learned to walk on his bent legs. When he was brought into the rescue we contacted a specialist and his legs have been fixed, as much as they can be. Dante could get one more surgery that might fix his leg, but the specialist decided that as long as he was not in pain, then he would be fine. So if he ever shows signs of pain then he will need to be brought to a orthopedic specialist right away.
What makes Dante quirky is his fear of the indoors. When indoors he panics and runs around trying to escape. We assume it is because he was never allowed indoor, but it could be from abuse.
Dante loves the water, swimming is one of his favorite activities. Swimming is great for Dante, because of his leg, it helps him get the exercise he needs.
The ideal family for Dante, would be understanding of his fear of the indoors and be willing to work with him to teach him that it safe to be with his family. Also, this family would be able to provide a pool for him, so that he could cool off when hot and swim to get some exercise.
The adoption fee is: $150
