Unwanted

This is our last remaining pup, Other Girl. She was to join her new home two days ago, but the (ex)new owner declined at the eleventh hour. Poor unwanted puppy, we feel so sad for her =(.



We hope we can find a home for her, but its going to be very very hard. Her hind legs are not too good. Our regular vet diagnosed her with splayed legs, and after two rounds of heavy meds she did improve, but her legs are still not what they're supposed to be.

She still walks noticeably funny. We suspect she might have hip dysplasia. Today we took her to another vet for a second opinion, and the vet said we need to x-ray to be sure (which the vet didn't have the machine at that clinic). The vet put Other Girl on a different med and advised us to change the pup's diet from lamb & rice to a chicken based formula. We'll have to see if she improves in a week time, before taking her for an x-ray.

We're trying to find her an adoptive home that will take her with her condition. We don't mind keeping her ourselves, but with two tyrants and a little human puppy due in a few short months, we might barely be able to cope with another growing tyrant. But if we don't find her an adoptive home, she will definitely find a permanent home with us.

Wish us luck.


* Do you have a place in your home and heart for this pup? Is yes let me know. Sorry, I have to personally know you to allow an adoption.

She's fit right in here with all the gimpies! In fact our human loves gimpies and probably wouldn't know what to do with a totally healthy pup. Wish she could come here. I know Khady Lynn would have a fun time playing with her!

That is very sad, but it is so good to hear that she will have a home with you. Hope you can find a way to fix her legs.

Woos, the OP Pack
