Bobbles is a sweet pup who needs kindness and understanding. He has congenital vestibular disease, which affects his balance and causes him to circle or walk in a drunken state at times. His head would also wobble sometimes. (Here's a short article about vestibular in canine: https://healthypets.mercola.com/sites/healthypets/archive/2012/06/04/canine-vestibular-disease.aspx
Puppies born with this condition often adapt quickly and learn to manage it quite well. We've seen significant improvement in his coordination since fostering him for a month now. He is coping very well with his bodily condition, and walk, run, jump, and play like most normal puppies do.
He's highly trainable and responds very well to positive reinforcement. He loves praises and attentions, and of course treats! So far, he can do SIT, DOWN, WAIT, COME. And that's just with about 7-10 days of training!
He knows not to go potty in his playpen but outside in the garden (Accidents do happen still, especially when it's overnight or too long without toilet break).
He plays well with my adult dog, and is very responsive to us humans. He understands he's not allowed in certain areas of the house, and understands the concept of NO.
Bobbles is mild tempered, doesn't easily agitate or bark much. This makes him an ideal, well-balanced house pet
He is vaccinated, dewormed and neutered.
WHAT BOBBLES IS LOOKING FOR:
Bobbles need kindness and understanding from his humans, that he sometimes would stumble and fall and is just a bit clumsy overall. He needs to be within a fenced area, and leaving him wondering outside (with moving vehicles around) is very dangerous for him. He would of course need a forever home, a family who will care and love him as he is.
We hope to find Bobbles a good home, and would welcome you to come visit him (and learn more about his condition) if you are interested. Reach out to us via phone or email. We can share more about the treatments and vet visits we've done so far to help him with his condition.
