Tessa is a 1-3 year old 12 lb dog that is blind and has hydrocephalus. Her medical condition is managed by medication and she has adjusted quite well to her blindness.
Tessa adores other small dogs and would do best in a home with adopters who are around most of the time and are able to care for a special needs dog. She does OK when she is left alone for brief periods, but she becomes nervous after a few hours. Tessa loves to play with toys and is very puppy-like.She take her cues from other dogs and would do best having a canine companion to show her the way.
Even with her medical limitations, Tessa is one of the happiest dogs we have ever met. She is full of joy, a delight to care for and eager to learn new things.
Tessa will be on medication for life and requires weekly acupuncture treatments so she would do best with an adopter who has the time and resources to provide plenty of TLC.
