📡 PING 📡

Shepherd cross, 1 year old, 45 lbs.

💗 SPECIAL NEEDS 💗

Ping came to us as a baby, with a face full of ticks. Soon after arriving she developed an unknown illness, which started with a fever and progressed to rapidly deteriorating physiological symptoms. She recovered from the illness, however, the neuromuscular impairment remained. After months of intensive physical therapy, Ping is able to live a *mostly* normal life with a few accommodations.

💓 Accommodations 💓

•Ping doesn't currently drink water in a meaningful way, so her food is soaked in water and given twice a day to make sure she gets enough hydration.

•Ping isn't left unattended, as she can knock into things too easily. Luckily, she is great in her kennel.

•Training with Ping will take time and patience as she learns a bit differently than other dogs. 🙏🏼

•Due to neurological damage from the illness, Ping's movements can be unpredictable and her response to stimulus can be unusual.

A successful adopter should be willing to accept Ping where she is and have the strength and patience to support her as she develops.

She is a goofy girl, who runs away from chihuahuas 😂 and loves everyone she meets. 🥰

•Good in cars

•Crate trained

•Not a chewer

•Dogs of all sizes okay but probably recommend those who are not older or grouchy with a bouncing bundle of joy.

•Potty training is unknown, as she doesn't have free roam in her foster home. She is best on a schedule.

•Does have specific dietary requirements.

•Needs a large yard with full fencing.

•No small children

•No cats

The list of needs may be long for Miss Ping, but the reward of her happy life will be the gift that you’ll be grateful for with each passing day. ❤️❤️❤️

Wiggly Tails Dog Rescue is proud to rescue dogs in urgent need and to also assist local owners who can no longer care for their small breed dog. All our dogs are up to date on their shots and spay or neutered. We do require a foster or adoption application for those interested and will visit your home for a meet and greet before releasing the dog to you.
