Tessa

ataxia

Meet Tough Tessa!  Both Tessa and her sister, Jessa (see below), are beautiful young belgian malinois pups.  Their condition causes a wobbly gait and because of this they will sometimes take a tumble. Tessa is not yet as strong as her sister and as such is receiving PT and she uses a cart to assist with mobility.  

Tessa is happiest when she gets to run, play & GO!  She is human, dog and cat friendly, with appropriate introductions, is super cuddly, and is ready to adopt a human who will include her in all that life has to offer.

Tessa is available via The Hops Project and is adoptable througout North America.  Click to email for more information.
