Story
If you're looking for a dog who is one in a million, we have just that: meet Pony the blind, narcoleptic puppy! Pony is an amazing little girl. She is intelligent, playful, and so loving. Pony just doesn't have bad days! She came to Brave with a local family had an accidental litter of puppies and they wanted to make sure Pony, who they could tell was blind, found the best home. After just a day in her foster home, her foster family noticed seizure-like "episodes" where Pony would pass out, twitch, then wake up ready to play. A trip to the neurologist taught us she has narcolepsy, a condition where she falls asleep randomly. These episodes are induced by stress and excitement and can last 1-4 minutes a time. Pony is on medication that curbs these episodes, reducing them from sometimes dozens of times a day to a few times a week. While her narcoleptic episodes do not hurt her or damage her brain, they do bring her quality of life into question when they're not managed. That is why it is necessary Pony stays on medication throughout her life.  Key information to note if you're considering adopting Pony:  Blindness: Pony relies on her other senses to navigate her environment, so expect her to sniff, listen, spin, and feel her way around. Providing a safe and secure space for her to explore is essential. A home with minimal stairs or stairs that can be gated will be necessary. Pony visited a veterinary eye specialist who confirmed she is completely blind. Pony has microphthalmia, or underdeveloped eyes. The vet saw no issues or need for surgery at this time.  Narcolepsy: Pony will have narcolepsy her whole life. Potential adopters will need to be willing to establish care with her neurologist in Omaha and schedule routine check-ups as necessary. Regular communication with Pony's neurologist is essential for monitoring her condition and adjusting her treatment plan as needed. As she's growing, monthly weight updates will need to be communicated with her neurologist to adjust medication. She currently takes liquid medication by mouth every 8 hours (approximately 6am, 4pm, and 10pm). At this time, her medication is not able to be adjusted to every 12 hours.  Accommodations: Overall, Pony is a regular puppy. She plays, she finds things to chew on, and she has potty accidents. Due to her disabilities, Pony might take longer to learn house rules. She is slowly making progress with potty training. She also uses potty pads in her gated area. However, when Pony has free-reign of the house she does not remember where Potty pads are and does not cue when she needs to go outside. Consistent supervision, frequent bathroom breaks, and positive reinforcement will be key in helping her learn.Pony's blindness makes her vulnerable to accidents, especially around stairs and unfamiliar surroundings. Keep pathways clear and consider installing safety gates to prevent falls. At night and while her foster family is at work, Pony is kept in an x-pen (lovingingly called her "stable") where she has access to food, water, her bed, and potty pads. A set up like this will be necessary when adopting Pony and extremely helpful in her transitioning to another environment.  Working Through Issues: Adopting Pony will require patience and understanding as you help her adapt to her new life. With any pet we adopt out, we want adopters to make informed decisions and be 100% committed to adopting their new pet. This is even more true for adopting Pony. We know she is cute and amazing, but PLEASE take the time to consider if you are truly able to care for her and her special needs.  Pony's Ideal Home: Adopters will need to be financially stable and able to support her medication and vet visits (neurological visits will likely be yearly initially). Adopters will ideally be dog-savvy and able to work through (or accept) issues and obstacles. We are requiring she goes to a home with other animals. They help her learn and adjust and she gets immense joy from playing with them. Pony would do best in a home without children (this includes children who visit frequently).  House trained: No - she is a puppy and she is still learning. Being blind also poses additional challenges in potty training. Leash trained: No Kennel trained: She is "kenneled" in a play-pen area that has her water, food, bed, and potty pads. Rides well in a car: Yes. She is wiggly so she needs to be kenneled or held by someone not driving. Good with other dogs: Yes, fostered with two large dogsGood with cats: She LOVES cats and likes to wrestle with them like they're puppies! Good with young children (under 10): Needs a child-free homeShy or confident: ConfidentBarks: NoApartment qualified: Yes Health concerns or special needs: Pony is blind and has narcolepsy - current montly medication costs are $70/month We believe Pony is a long hair chihuahua (we've seen photos of parents) and was born January 8, 2024. She is fostered in a private home in Lincoln. The adoption fee is $400 which helps cover the cost of vetting procedures. Adoptable pets will have received age-appropriate vaccines and dewormings, a microchip, heartworm test (if applicable) and a spay/neuter.

Story
Grace aka "GraceyLou" is absolutely as sweet as they come. Wants to be in your lap, being snuggled and loved all the time. She likes toys and chasing her brother, Spot. The two are very bonded and sleep together and play together non stop. Spot is a bit bigger and a bit more ornery. He loves to cuddle but also is always on the hunt to explore and find items to bring you. Both have great manners and are potty trained, just need to not get distracted and be allowed time to get their business done. They are working on being on a leash, but also don't stray to far when off leash from their human mom and dad. The pair will make the best addition to a family. Spot & Grace are bonded Chihuahua siblings who were born approximately 10-23-23. Spot weighs 7 lbs and is a neutered male, Grace weighs 4 lbs and is a spayed female. They are vaccinated, microchipped, given flea/tick preventative, dewormed, tested negative for heartworm disease and started on heartworm prevention. Adoption fee is $600 as a bonded pair to help offset the many expenses we have for vetting costs. We rely strictly on adoption fees and donations to continue to save the lives of orphaned & abandoned pets; 100% goes towards their care.
