This is Blossom our pretty little 4 year old 11lb Maltipoo girl. Blossom was taken to the shelter by her owners who told the shelter she was 13 years old and very sick, they then asked for her to be euthanized. The shelter vet examined her upon intake and realized she was not 13 and she was not horribly sick as the owners claimed, she was only 3-4 years old and suffering from a severe skin infection caused by years of neglect. The shelter reached out to us to save her and we did. Blossom was left with such a horrible yeast infection covering her face and entire body that it caused painful ear infections. We got her into a wonderful foster home that fed her good healthy food and got her skin back on the right track. She is now ready for adoption but she does have some issues that we need to take into serious consideration with her forever home. Due to her being left in such a horrible way, the vet feels this has left her immune system compromised and we have seen that proof in her reoccurring yeast and ear infections. She will need to see a vet every few months to make sure she is doing ok, she will need to be on a very healthy and nourishing diet, and require grooming every 6 weeks to keep her with a short cut which helps eliminate bacterial growth on her skin. Blossom is also not potty trained. She is a bit stubborn in that department. We have had her for many many months now and she still refuses to go potty on her own outside. She will use potty pads though, but a home with carpeting is not a good idea. She needs owners that will be patient and understanding with her and not expect much change in her behaviors. Blossom would not do well with young kids because she does get a bit grumpy when she is sleeping and is bumped or moved. Children 12 years and older would be ok, but not little ones. She is not a barker at all and seems to love people more than dogs, but we do see she seems to get along with male dogs that are her size or smaller. We want her in a home with another dog around her age that can grow up with her. She is not a super big player but she does like to play bite with another dog, so they must be ok with her doing that. She CANNOT be an only dog. We want her in a home with owners that are home most of the day or work from home. She rides well in the car and has perfect manners when you take her out and about. Blossom had a really rough beginning with owners that did not seem to care about her, but we will change that by finding her the best loving forever home we can!
Blossom is spayed, microchipped and vaccinated.
