Taylor Swifty - Adopted
Well well well look who’s here all the way from Iran! The sweetest little girl with a big personality and strong will to not let little road blocks in life keep her from being the happiest dog on earth! Stay tuned to hear more about Taylor Swifty as we get to know her a bit better and look into her mobility issues.
Update - January 2019
Here is what Taylor Swifty’s foster mom can tell you about this cutie:
Taylor is one of the sweetest, cuddliest and happiest dogs ever!
She came from a troubled past in Iran, where she was likely a street dog. She clearly had multiple litters of puppies, and at some point was likely hit by a car or kicked. Her injury left her unable to walk on her back legs when rescuers found her, but her sweet disposition and will to keep going inspired them to find her some help in Canada.
Since she joined BUTTONNOSES foster program she learned to walk in a wheelchair, she started gaining weight and building muscles in her back legs so hopefully she will be back on all 4 feet in the future.
She currently does swimming for physiotherapy and is seeing a chiropractor. Although nothing in life is guaranteed, based on the incredible progress she’s making we think she may be walking or somehow using her back legs in the future. She is now able to stand up on all four which is a HUGE improvement already.
The perfect home for her could be almost anywhere, as long as she is not left alone at home for long hours as she needs to be taken out to potty (She is in the process of house training, and is good except when it’s raining or snowing, then some extra encouragement helps. Canada is a bit of a shock!) She is fantastic with kids, cats, shealso likes other dogs but will likely be the top dog in the house (something left from her life on the streets). She loves going out for walks (or rolls), and she is always nuzzling people for more pets. She learned how great it is to be loved and cant get enough!
Taylor’s forever family should be willing to continue her physio / chiro (as long as it is recommended by her treating professionals).
Whoever falls in love with this girl will certainly get more from her than they will give. She is a special jewel!
