Hi my name is Petey, I was hit by a car a few months ago and I suffered a spinal injury. It was so painful I could barely walk. I was all alone and scared until one day I was rescued by the Big Dog Ranch. They gave me top-notch medical care and treated me like one of the family and they found me a super awesome foster mom. Between them all, I was given hope. My foster mom is always home, so its good for me since Ive been a little incontinent since the accident. It has gotten better over the last few months though. I will go to the door now when I feel its time. If you dont see me, I will bark. I dont like making a mess, but if youre not quick you will be cleaning up after me. My foster mom takes me out every two hours and that seems to be sufficient. My favorite hobbies are; *Long walks on the beach and around the lake. I love to sit and watch the ducks, the Seagulls and the geckos... anything that moves really. I dont bark at them I just love to animal watch! *I have a bunch of toys that I play with every morning. I take them out of my basket one by one and put them under my foster moms chair. She tries to teach me to put them all back before bed, but I play with them instead hee hee hee...My foster mom says playing with my toys is great therapy for my legs and my paws as I still suffer from nerve damage. Youll see when we go out for walks that I still wobble a bit in my back legs and my paws drag on the ground. Walking on a flat surface is hard and walking on asphalt will make my knuckles bleed. Thats why I love the grass and the sand its so soft *I love to play with other dogs as long as they are friendly too. *I also love to swim. I learned how at the big dog Ranch Rescue facility, where they have a pool. I go for my water therapy there. I was scared at first but now I love it. I swim straight to to them! My perfect forever home should be full of love, toys, a pool even if its a small one, a backyard to run and play in or daily walks In the park or on the beach or even both! I love my crate it has a nice soft pillow on the bottom and a Blankey to go over my head at bedtime. And I love having a bed to hang out on with my family during the day and a place to put all my toys. But none of the toys should have any hard pieces like eyes and noses that I can chew off and swallow. At bedtime I would love it if you could cover me with my flight favorite Blankey and a kiss goodnight. Please dont let my disabilities scare you away Im full of love and Im happy all of the time. I cannot wait to meet you.
