Selima is a medium energy girl that does well with other dogs. She won't do well in a home with children (wrong energy for her) & cats are unknown.

She does use welping mats at home & diapers for travel due to her incontinency.

While Selima does not have back legs, it does not stop her at all from scooting around & living her best life.

Selima was born in Egypt where baladi's are considered trash & many people there go out of their way to hurt this "breed". She was born with a hem vertebra and as a very young puppy; a very traumatic injury took away her ability to walk. Selima was shot, rendering her paralyzed. As if that wasn't cruel enough, she was then tossed into a cemetery where she was left to die. Thankfully, not everyone in Egypt is cruel. Selima was noticed by a person visiting a loved one at the cemetery & was brought to a local rescue for medical care. That was in June 2015. The bullet was removed from her spine and because of the extent of the injuries, her back legs also needed to be removed.

Today, Selima is a new dog. Even with no legs, she can cruise around the house just as fast as her four legged siblings.

Selima loves playtime with her other fur siblings, playing dress up for the holidays, snuggling with her foster mom and racing around the house like a maniac.

There are some things though that make Selima nervous. Children can be too rambunctious and fast, men can be too big and their voice scares me. Going in a wheelchair? She hates it and would rather be a scooting pup .

Selima has never been around a cat before so we're not sure how she would do with them but a cat would have the luxury of being able to jump on something if they want to get away from her. Her ideal home would be with a woman or if there happens to be a man with a soft manner and a ton of patience.

*Transport can be arranged to any approved adopter within the US at no additional charge.
Currently Selima is located in Lawrenceville, Georgia.
