Hey there! My siblings and I were brought over here from the Island of Puerto Rico with our Mom when we were very young. We enjoyed our own puppy cabin at BDRR as well. I have faced some physical challenges since my arrival, but with time I have gotten stronger. I am now enjoying a foster home and recently just again visited Dr. Latimer/othopedic specialist and Dr. Reese/neurology specialist as I am now over 6 months of age. They diagnosed me with cerebellum hyperplasia - which means that at a young age I had damage to the cerebellum (back part of the brain). This affects the vestibular system which controls balance and gait. This could have been from a congenital malformation, or an infectious disease which often threatens unvaccinated puppies. Since I continue to improve with time, they do not believe it will be a continuing disease process with further deterioration. So on with my happy life I go in search of my very own family and loving home. I am best suited in a home without young children.

My fosters have been helping me with lots of tlc, walks, swimming lessons and a great life overall. In their care, I am much stronger and doing very well. I may always fail the 'walk the straight line' test, but I will always excel at showering every person and dog I meet with sunshine and love. I love going to the beach, dog parks, and car rides.

I am looking for that special someone to adopt me and give me a forever home.
