Update July 13, 2017: We have discovered Daisy is completely deaf. She is a happy, healthy puppy and this should not deter her adopter! She will need a home willing to work with a trainer who understands who to rain deaf dogs so that she can reach all her training milestones. We are excited to report her balance has improved significantly and her cerebellar issues are virtually unnoticeable at this point!
Daisy, age 4 1/2 months as of 7/20/17, is one of three Chiweenie pups we took in after a backyard breeder left them in a municipal shelter in NC at age 6 weeks. They had been born with what our neurologist have now diagnosed as cerebellar vestibular dysfunction, a congenital issue secondary to lack of oxygen in utero. While this sounds scary, we are thrilled to share that all three puppies will need normal lives, albeit a bit clumsy with some balance issues and a general incoordination. These pups are spayed/neutered, fully vaccinated and ready to go home in NY, NJ, CT and some parts of PA.
Note: While Luke has already been adopted, because of their special needs, Bo and Daisy will need to go to a home with another FRIENDLY small dog. We will also consider one home for them to be adopted together as a bonded pair.
