Hi there, meet Jazzy. She’s a special needs gal looking for a special forever family! Jazzy is a special needs pet because she has a neurological deficit that makes walking difficult for her, but she doesn’t let that stop her from trying to chase squirrels and birds! Thankfully she no longer requires a “wheelchair” to be able to get around but does require some assistance walking. She is currently working on building muscle tone in her hind legs and is attending physical therapy and does receive medication daily to help manage her neurological deficit. She is house broken and goes to the door or whines when she wants to go out and does best on a schedule. She does still have some accidents without her knowing because of the neurological deficit and does sleep in a diaper overnight. She is such a sweetheart and loves to cuddle up. Jazzy can be a little vocal at times – she loves to share her opinion! She would do just fine in a house with older/considerate children. I don't think a house with young kids would be ideal for her considering her condition. Jazzy also prefers to be the only pet. She enjoys short walks and does well on a leash. She is even crate trained although she does prefer to be out in a secured area if possible.
