Darling came into AARCS care in 2013 heavily pregnant. She was a very timid and scared dog who had never known the kindness of humans. It was noticed right away that something was not right with her tail. Sadly nothing could be done because of her advanced pregnancy and she whelped her puppies in an AARCS foster home.
After many vet visits it was determined that she had a broken tail, but was not something that could be surgically repaired. She is not able to use her tail like a normal dog. She does have control of both her bowels and and bladder, although if really frightened will on occasion drop poop ‘nuggets’. A minor set back, but in our minds, still very adoptable.
Darling is looking for a home who is ready and willing to give her all she needs, including lots of time and training to become what she truly deserves and that is a beloved family pet. She is still a very nervous dog so we are looking for an experienced dog home, preferably with another social canine companion.
Darling is currently living in a home with one dog and no cats, but I think cats wouldn’t be a problem. However, it is recommended that she live in a home without smaller/prey-type animals like bunnies.
