Thank you to everyone who donated to Sid for his neurological evaluation. He has found a loving home and will get his vet visit to boot! Sydney aka "Sid" is an adorable puppy who recently came into our care with some special needs. He is a gentle pup and very playful. He will need a special home as he might have Cerebellar hypoplasia, a developmental problem that causes him to have a funny gait and sometimes lose his balance. For someone who doesn't know better he just looks like an awkward puppy. One of the causes of it is malnourishment and he was a very emaciated pup when he was first rescued in rural TN. For an accurate diagnosis he may need an MRI, so we are asking for donations to help with his evaluation. More info on the web at Dogs with Cerebellar hypoplasia live a full life just as any other dog and it doesn't affect them mentally except for the lack of coordination. Sid's story: he was picked up as a stray at a dumpster site in TN, starved and alone. But he was fed and given shelter in his foster home there, and now will be coming up to us and be available beginning 7/24/09. He's a playful little boy, happy and friendly. Not mouthy at all, just the most affectionate dog you will ever meet. He is happy all the time and has a big smile. He loves squeaky toys, rope toys; pretty much anything he can pounce on and throw around. He loves to go for walks (he has no idea he walks funny) and play with tennis balls and frisbees in the backyard. He loves everyone and gives lots of kisses. He is also great with cats. He is great in the house, very relaxed and doing amazingly with potty training. The last picture is of Sid kayaking with his foster family, he loved it! Our process is that you fill out the application first, then in one or two days we will contact you if your application is a match. Please read our guidelines under Apply to Adopt as some dogs require a stay-at-home and some dogs require a fenced in yard. Phone calls are discouraged as it takes time away from the care of the dogs to answer questions that might already be on our web site. We tend to put down everything we know. If information is missing, it's usually because we don't know yet. :-) Check web site for Meet and Greet hours. Available date is 7/24/09.
