Laila was abandoned at a government shelter where she caught distemper. After a long battle she beat distemper. She has been left with the tell-tale neurological tic that some dogs cannot get rid of after distemper. These tics can drastically improve over time till the point they are barely noticeable but it does take time and she will need support.
This special girl also had to have one of her front legs amputated when she was removed from the shelter. She is a shining example of a dog living her life to the fullest in spite of all she has been through. A little tripawd, distemper surviving angel!
Her ideal home will be in a semi-rural/rural setting with a good-sized garden and access to plenty of local walks. She would enjoy living with or without other dogs. She would do best with two shorter walks per day rather rather one long one. We would also prefer her to live with a family where someone was home most of the time.
You’ll be surprised by how nimble and agile tripawd dogs are! Please don’t discount her because you think she can’t play and walk like a dog with four legs. She can and she is amazing.
Her adopter will need to be prepared to do the research to help her manage and improve her tic. She will need an adopter who is dedicated to helping her thrive and doesn’t simply just want a dog! She needs someone who really wants to RESCUE and HELP a dog in need.
