Meet Walter - Approved Adopter!

Walter is a VERY special catch!

Walter came to us from a local shelter. He is VERY affectionate. He loves to nap, play, explore outside and is overall a normal happy dog. He makes his foster family laugh every day. He gets along well with his foster dog siblings, and is in love with their kitty.

Unfortunately, we think Walter suffered a traumatic injury at some point and he has some issues with his back legs. Walter can get around pretty well, it doesn't seem to phase him. At the rougher times, he scoots more than he walks. His hind legs work, but they don't work well all of the time. He is not a fan of the wheelchair, and thankfully he doesn't seem to be in pain. He seems to be used to his condition and it doesn't bother him a bit.

He is up to date on vaccines, heart worm negative, and will have surgery for neuter and dental. He does have 5/6 heart murmur that may require medications in the future. We're estimating he's about 5 years old.

Walter seems to have more control over his #1 habits than #2 habits. His foster family uses a larger penned area when they leave and at night for bedtime. He'll do best in a home with someone that's home majority of the time.

If you would love to give Walter a second chance, please complete our online adoption application. Once Walter is up to date on all vetting and neutered, he will be available for adoption.
