Sonja is a 12 year old, 8 lb, special needs senior. She has bad back legs that at her age, we are not going to surgically repair. They do not seem to bother her. She has some pain meds for those cold rainy days. She is silly, goofy, and happy. Sonja has always had allergies and skin issues that we continue to figure out and try to help her with the best we can. You can see in some of the pictures how her back legs bow out, but it doesn't seem to slow her down as much anymore. Since she has gotten more confident, she stands up straighter and carries herself better than she used to. As a matter of fact, I had a hard time getting these pictures because she was frisky and running her silly circles around the living room :). You can also see how her skin is. It maintains about like you see it, with twice weekly baths and the apoquel, Sonja chews and itches a lot less than she previously had. She has a small bald spot on her shoulders, rump and tail, as well as patchy hair on her face. Her tummy is mostly naked, and the skin between her back legs stays scaly.
She'll definitely need someone who understands that she is special needs, but she's a fantastic companion, and I think she'll prove worth the extra work to whoever takes her home:) Sonja is available through our seniors for seniors program and her adoption fee is waived. She will come with her medication, but it will be up to you, as the adopter to up keep with her meds. We will provide apx 3 months worth at the time of adoption. She needs to be on a good allergy diet and take apaquel along with her once in a while pain meds. On average this cost is apx $40 a month. So although her adoption fee is waived, Sonja will need to go to a home that can financially care for her needs. Apply to adopt at www.texaschihuahuarescue.com
Sonja is available in Texas only.
