UPDATE - 9 DECEMBER 2018 (from Bunny's foster mom): Bunny is a happy little girl who doesn’t know she is special! She hops around well considering her deformity. She may benefit from a cart or some assistance when she gets older - hard to say since she is still young and growing. Bunny is house trained, crate trained, knows how to use a doggie door and can go up and down stairs. She’s very friendly, playful and gets along great with the resident pooches. She’s a special little girl indeed!
UPDATE - 24 NOVEMBER 2018: We discovered little Bunny has a curved spine that causes her to "hop" on her back legs to get around. According to our vet, Bunny currently demonstrates no neurologic deficits or areas of discomfort along her spine, but the deformity is very pronounced. Surgery is not required at this time. Bunny is still growing, so there is no way to know what will happen as her spine develops. This tiny girl needs a very special family who will be willing to deal with some of these unknowns. Bunny just went to live with our kennel manager, but she needs a permanent home where she will be loved and cared for despite her disability.
NEW - 17 NOVEMBER 2018: Bunny is a beagle/chihuahua mix who was surrendered to BREW when her owner was evicted. Bunny is a little shy but very sweet. She comes from Wythe County, Virginia, and lived with other dogs and kittens. We are having her checked out by our vet, but she will be available soon for fostering or adoption.
