I am already spayed, housetrained, a special needs pet, in need of an experienced adopter, and up to date with shots.
Porsche is a tiny (20lb or so) 2 yr old retriever mix and a special needs girl. Porsche has been diagnosed with Diffuse Cerebellar Dysfunction. She basically has a brain deformity that makes it difficult for her to walk. She's learning to walk with the help of a harness and doing quite well with that. We are hoping her adaptive skills will improve over time but she'll never gain complete control of her limbs. She is potty trained if you watch her cues. Porsche is currently being seen by the neurologist at VRCC, whom GRFR has worked with in the past. Porsche is looking for a very speical home that will cater to her special needs. Her life expectancy is normal. She may eventually do well with a cart of some kind that could be used for longer walks and GRFR will be looking into physical therapy options.
Porsche was brought to GRFR through the efforts of Wags and Menace Make a Difference Foundation. (www.wagsandmenace.org) Wags and Menace is sponsering all of Porsche's medical and physical therapy expenses. GRFR is proud to be working with Wags and Menace to help Porsche live a long and happy life.
