Bailey was attacked by a large dog in August 2015, and became unable to walk. Her owner wasn’t able to get her treated, and provide ongoing medical care, so she eventually surrendered Bailey to APB, so that we could help her.
She has had treatment with chiropractic, cold laser and acupuncture and is now having ongoing rehabilitation therapy at the MSU vet clinic. She is doing quite well and gaining strength in her back legs. Her prognosis is still not certain. We are doing recommended exercises with her and trying to get her to use her hind legs with a cart. She loves going for walks in her little cart, but gets along fine at home on hardwood floors and outside in the grass without her cart. She needs someone who has the time to continue working with her in the hope that she will regain the ability to walk again. So we are looking for a special person for this special girl.
Bailey is just the sweetest little girl who loves everyone, including kids and other dogs. She would be best without dogs that are super active, as they might knock her over in her cart. She understands going potty outside and will bark or try to let you know when she needs to go. However, when she gets excited about something, or you are not paying attention, she cannot hold it. Therefore it would be best for her to be in a home with washable floors! She loves to go for car rides, and she also likes to play tug of war with her special toy. All in all, she is a joy to have around and will just stare at you with love in her eyes and make you melt! For more info, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
