Tyler puts the special in special needs adoption. This amazing little dog has been with us quite a while, mostly in foster care. He has a huge spirit wrapped in a tiny chihuahua frame. When we first met him in August, we thought his shyness was his biggest obstacle and his periodontal disease a distant second. We had the order wrong. It did take weeks to win his trust and man oh man was he worth the wait. Once Tyler feels comfortable he will prance and dance at the sight of his people and is most content curled up on a lap. (In typical Chihuahua fashion, he is prone to guarding his inner circle, so an adult family may be the best fit for everyone's happiness.) Unfortunately, after multiple courses of antibiotics, multiple dental procedures, several tooth extractions, radiographs to look for root fragments (not there), even more antibiotics and LOTS of TLC, Tyler still has drainage under his right eye which appears to be related to an underlying infection in his jaw bone. On top of this, Tyler has a grade 2 out of 6 heart murmur. We have taken our efforts as far as we can, and even further than that. Now we are looking for a very special adopter who can give Tyler the extra care he will need to address his issues. His adoption fee has been waived in recognition of this commitment. Tyler is currently in foster care but will be willing to come to our Upper Bucks facility for a scheduled meet and greet. Ask to meet him today. Tyler is orange.
