Koala.JPG

Koala
DOB 4/11/21

hydrocephalus

Meet Koala, a young mixed breed happy male pup.  Koala has hydrocephalus but is living symptom free with a simple regimine of Prednisone (a common steroid) and over-the-counter Prilosec.  

Koala is, in most ways, a typical puppy enjoying typical puppy things.  He loves his people, although does require humans who will respect his personal space. No/older kids preferred. Koala loves other dogs and will live his best life with a dog friend in the home.

It is impossible to know what Koala's long-term prognosis is.  He could have a relatively normal life span, but it could also be that the hydrocephephalus progresses and shortens his time.  We just don't know, and the reality is that we never know with any dog. What we do know is Koala is a very special dog who deserves the same love and inclusion of any other dog.

 

Koala is available via Brave Animal Rescue in Lincoln, NE; adoption outside of area will be considered. Learn more about Koala on his profile pageand click to email for more information.

Dalton
~DOB 2014

blind

Meet Dalton, a 7 yo male pup of the happy, wiggle butt variety. Daltopn was diagnosed with multiple eye issues which resulted in a recent double enucleation (eye removal) to improve his comfort and quality of life.  Dalton is adjusting well and his loss of vision has not impacted his joy in greeting friends and visitors.

Dalton's favorite activites include running around the yard, playing with squeaky toys and battling it out in a game of tug-o-war. An ideal owner will be patient and help Dalton adjust to new surroundings while encouraging independence and resilliency. His energy and enthusiasm make him a perfect candidate for all life has to offer!  

Dalton is available via SPCA of Wake County in Raleigh, NC and can be adoptable out-of-area if transport/pick-up is provided.

Angel
~DOB Dec. 2019

polioencephalomalacia

Meet Angel, the sweetest girl! She has the heart of a puppy and will make you happy just by watching her play. She is curious, loves cuddles, and can happily entertain herself inside with toys while her human is at work.

 

Angel's neurological condition makes her an ideal homebody who doesn’t need a lot of walks or trips out. She loves doing spinnies in the backyard and playing fetch (although she’s not that good at it!).  Her vision is fine but the communication with her brain is sometimes muddled. She can be a little clumsy and sometimes has difficulty with recognition. When she meets strangers, she doesn't recognize them as humans and so can be fearful. Her ideal adopter will be patient and loving and will take their time getting to know her. She is looking for a low traffic home, with no kids or other pets.

Angel is available via Foster Army Animal Rescue and is adoptable througout Southern California.  Follow Angel on her Instagram feed, and click to email for more information.

Darla's requests for her forever home include an active human, a secure yard for all the playing and a canine sibling (or playmates) who can match her young energy.  

 

Darla is with Animal Alliance Rescue Foundation; preferred adoption area is Southern California, however transport can be arranged for the perfect adopter outside this area.  Learn more about Darla on her profile page and via her IG feed.
