Dizzy is a 5 year old female Pug. Dizzy is a gorgeous girl who is looking for her forever home, she does have some special requirements for her re homing, please ensure you read everything fully before applying. This little lady has a spinal issue, there is nothing that can be done to improve this and she has had all medical investigations to confirm this. Dizzy walks with an unusual gait and her back legs do sometimes give way, because of this she will need a carpeted home to protect her feet and legs. This is a must otherwise she could end up with sores and open wounds and that would be just terrible.
In the house Dizzy copes without issue, she is great with other dogs and will have a game of chase, her legs may be wonky but like most pugs, Dizzy can do the 100 yard dash in record time when she hears the fridge open or the rustle of any food packet! Dizzy is currently on a very strict diet and it is imperative that this continues in her new home. If we can reduce her weight it will help with her mobility and longer term prognosis. We currently have her on a weight reducing diet, it would be beneficial to her if this were maintained permanently. We will discuss her diet fully with suitable applicants.
Dizzy is fully continent at the moment and is able to take herself out into the garden as and when she wishes, there is one small step which she manages with no problem. As far as exercise goes Dizzy does need wheels for any exercise outside of the garden. These ensure that her spine is kept as aligned as possible and reduces the stress on her joints etc. Dizzy will be re homed with her wheels as they are specifically made for her. She is great with other dogs and does enjoy their company so another similar sized dog would be great, another pug would be even better as she does love her own kind.
Dizzy will need new owners who are around for most of the day, she loves her human company and is happy to curl up on the sofa next to you or by your feet. Because of her spine we would say any children would need to be teenagers, smaller children could accidentally fall on her and cause further damage. Visiting grandchildren would be fine.
There is the possibility that Dizzy’s issue could progress in the future, we have no way of predicting this at all. It may or may never happen – should her issues alter in the future then we will be on hand to help where we can as part of our adoption agreement. At present Dizzy is a great fun, loving dog who would like her forever home. We cannot offer guarantees but we will support new owners should things progress.
Dizzy is currently being fostered in Aldershot Hants, she has been neutered, vaccinated and micro chipped and is up to date with flea and worming treatment.
