Meet Flower–Malti-Poo!

Miss Flower needs a special family to dedicate time to meet her needs, but she is well managed at this time. She deserves a chance to be loved! She was found near death with pneumonia, starving and matted with mange in a trailer court in April 2019.

Diagnosed with Megaesophagus, and some type of neurological disorder that causes decreased muscle mass and caused loss of coordination in her walk. She 'bunny hops'. She can walk/run, but only for short distances. She has partial paralyzed back legs. Her bowels work fine. She has a droopy tail and cannot wag it, even when she is happy. She will talk and tell you all is well with her eyes!
She has a great appetite and must eat 3-4 times a day sitting upright, and then stay upright for 20 after eating. She has medications to take and is prone to aspiration pneumonia, which can be life threatening....she has had two bouts of it since April. She does moan at times, but is not in pain... more like anxiety noise.

Flower is a very loving, happy girl who depends on regular interactions with her caregiver... she will be very attached and dependent... snuggling on your shoulder after eating and will fall asleep. She likes to sleep in bed with her person, but will sleep in a kennel. She can be left for 3-5 hours in between meds/meals.

Flower is used to being with other dogs, but can be growly to guard her food or her person from other dogs. She likes to bark at the neighbor's dogs, which is a good sign she is feeling spunky!

Flower is a great dog, and would make a wonderful addition to any home!
