    I’m a sook with a lot of love to give!

    I’m finally distemper free! I’ve been living with my foster mom and her cat for the past few months, on quarantine, battling what is normally a death sentence. I was officially declared healthy just before Christmas and am looking for my forever home. I LOVE being outside and am on constant rabbit watch, whether on a walk or from the couch by the window. I also like cats, a lot. I like cats more than they like me. Sometimes I get too excited and want to play with them when they would rather just be left alone. But once we’ve met a few times, I learn to contain my excitement. I’m not great with other dogs and would do best in a single dog family. Further to that, the dog park isn’t great for me, I like neighborhood walks better. I’m mostly house trained, and I understand my name, ‘no’ and ‘sit’. My foster mom and I are working on ‘down’ and ‘stay’. I have a lot of love to give, and man, do I love cuddles and kisses. I also love tissue and toilet paper, so if there’s an open garbage around, I’ll dive in. But doors and lids scare me a bit, so it doesn’t take much to keep me out of trouble. Please come meet me! I just know we’ll get along and you won’t be able to resist my big eyes, spotted paws, and charm.

      Does this Animal have Special Needs?
      Yes, Medical Needs

      Even though Bear never shows any neurological symptoms from the distemper, the damage has been done to her nervous system. This means that she could have seizures or neurological issues start at any moment or never. She doesn’t appear to have any other long term effects from the distemper :).
