Meet Ana, a 4 month old black mouth cur. She's considered a special needs puppy. Daily care, including walks, obedience training and potty training may be more difficult than with the average puppy. Her adoption fee has been reduced ($225 total, $150 adoption fee plus that $75 obedience class deposit). She was born with problems to her Central Nervous System. Balance issues and back end weakness are evident, but that doesn't stop her. She's one of the most precious puppies ever. A good quality of life is expected, but an owner must properly accommodate for the balance issues and weakness, and know that this is a life-long condition that will not improve. She has shown some fear behaviors and is not recommended to live in a home with young children, as quick movements seem to scare her. Use caution if any children live in/visit the home. She will likely do best in a calm, consistent household (few people living in the home, minimal visitors to the home, no loud/rambunctious people in the home). She may need a longer time to adjust in the new home than the average dog. Giving her a crate as a safe place in a quiet location in the new home may help with the adjustment period. Obedience classes should be started as soon as possible after adoption once they have had a couple weeks to adjust to the new home. Are you able to open your heart and home to Ana?
