Addie is a 7 mth old little girl that is very soft natured and sweet but she is sporting a couple of seemingly bad kneecaps (Patellas)
She is off to the Vet on Friday to get these looked at as well as her soft palate and a couple of other bibs and bobs that we have concern over.
Adele has had her soft palate and nares operated on as well as being desexed, she has been diagnosed with a skin infection so she will be going on antibiotics for approximately a month as well as the medication Apoquel. Adele has a grade 4 patella on one leg and grade 3 on the other. These will need to be operated on but with the our vets professional opinion we need to wait another 3 to 4 months giving time for her growth plates to mature.
Adele has settled in well with her Foster carer and by all accounts a very sweet happy girl, we do have concerns with her sight and that will be addressed on a upcoming Vet visit and it will give us time to observe her more.
She is ready!
She is soft and she is sweet but she is a little mischief maker and can run like the wind and eat like a horse, she loves her toys, she loves her cuddles and she will follow you to the ends of the earth until some bright shiny object catches her eye...she is an awesome little dog!
She will need an owner that is observant to her needs, her ears will need to cleaned on a regular basis and every now and then she will need some Apoquel to keep the itchies at bay...none of this is hard work it just requires someone that is attentive, consistent and aware, we cannot stress that enough when one takes on a Merle dog and she is a very easy one compared to others.
Adele does get along with other dogs but she has a foul temper if she feels like she is being challenged and its female dog she will fight with, our preference is for a non dominant male dog ... yes dogs on the beach or at a park, fine but at home one male dog.....as for people, she feels they were put on this earth to be her best buddy, slave, toy and supplier of all things good.
So if you feel you can give Adele the home she deserves please apply.
