Minka is a super special little lady! When she became a misfit, we really had no idea what the future would hold for her. She had so much fluid on her brain that her head was large and super soft to the touch. It was immediately obvious that Minka had hydrocephalus and needed meds quickly. As you can tell from her picture, Minka responded amazingly to her meds! The fluid on her brain came down so much that she was actually able to come off the med for it and has not had to go back on it. Minka loves life and lives to play with her foster siblings! She loves being outside and running around the backyard. Hydrocephalus also caused her to go blind, but that does not slow her down.
She will never be cured of hydrocephalus, but she is living proof that dogs can live happy lives with the condition. She is currently on 3 meds - one to prevent seizures, one for pain, and one for swelling. She has been in her foster home since early March and to her foster mom's knowledge, she has never had a seizure. Her meds do need adjusting from time to time as she grows, but that's nothing more than a trip to the vet. Minka would love to find a home that accepts her and her condition and welcomes her as a part of the family. Unfortunately, most dogs with hydrocephalus are tough to potty train, but with Minka loving to spend time outside, it really hasn't been an issue in her foster home. She struggles to understand a lot of commands, but she does come when called and knows when it's time for her medications.
Minka hasn't been around children, but will do best in a home with older children, if any. This is only because she doesn't understand that jumping really isn't allowed and she may knock over young children. Minka will take a dedicated adopter, but we know there is one out there for her! We are super proud to be able to post this girl as adoptable. She has overcome so much in her short life and she deserves the very best family!
