CAN LIVE WITH DOGS
LOVES A GOOD FUSS
DOG SAVVY CHILDREN 10+
Dotti is one super friendly girl. She was discovered living by the side of the road in a village, unable to move very far due to being paralysed in her back legs. Our vet believes it was an old injury, and the sores on her legs where she’s had to drag herself around, attest to that. There was talk in the village of having her euthanised, so we stepped in to help. It turns out she has a fracture of the L4 vertebrae and the only solution was a double amputation of her hind legs. She’s an amazing girl, not because she’s disabled, but because she still has trust in humans, despite having been so badly let down in the past.
She’s now around about a year old and weighs an ideal 11kg. Since coming into foster we’ve found out what a truly special girl she is. She gets on really well with other dogs, of all sizes. She is perfectly happy to be handled, and she loves a good fuss. She zooms about, with or without her wheels. She loves playing with a ball and can keep herself entertained. She’s a typical puppy. She is somewhat wary of new people, understandably, and young children, but with the proper introductions she’s absolutely fine. We feel children need to be over 10 and have experience of having lived with dogs.
Dotti will need an experienced adopter with a home environment that she can move around in easily, possibly whilst wearing her wheels indoors. She will happily wear nappies and a drag bag. She readily accepts having her bottom area cleaned a couple of times a day and sudocreme applied to her sores. Her foster is toilet training her and, we believe with time she will not necessarily need the nappies. Though these offer her rear end some protection when she moves around. Dotti truly deserves a little kindness, she’s such a loving girl. ????
