When Foster Mom got her at 8 months, she was almost paraplegic and mostly dragging, and the neurologist thought she had myelomalacia and would not live long.

With intensive physical therapy, she has proven everyone wrong and can now walk on all four legs and even run and sometimes do little skips! Just look at that smile! If an active, energetic, and very smart Frenchie sounds like a perfect fit for your family, please read on.

As you read, consider the potential lifestyle change and the substantial cost of adopting a special needs dog.

An ample savings is required to properly care for Dorey as her pre-existing condition and future complications arising from that will not be covered by insurance. There is a high risk of emergency back surgery and multi-day hospitalization at any time. Crowdfunding is not an option since back surgery is highly time-sensitive and must be performed immediately. Dorey was purchased as a puppy in Southern California.

Unfortunately, after just a few months, her family noticed that she was having difficulty standing and walking using her hind legs. A neurologist diagnosed her with a severe spinal deformity. Dorey was then taken to see one of the few surgeons who could perform a corrective procedure.

That procedure would have been quite costly and afterwards Dorey might have needed additional surgical procedures. She has spinal deformities which can be seen externally. She has ificant humps on her back and chest. The surgery that is indicated for correction is extremely expensive and at the time of her surrender was only available at a few locations.

When she came to FBRN, the available surgeon declined doing the procedure as the risk did not warrant the limited probability of success. For these reasons, Dorey must be protected from spinal injury even more than the average Frenchie. Her rib cage and spine could collapse if she is injured. For these reasons though she loves all dogs and children, she will need to be in a home with dogs smaller than her to minimize the chance of injury during play. Children must be old enough to understand the gravity of protecting her and not likely to fall on her.

Also, because of her hind end weakness, Dorey is also prone to neck injury. An emergency vet visit plus additional therapy is several hundred dollars, and also comes with weeks of lifestyle changes as Dorey recovers.

She has limited mobility and some urinary incontinence when she sleeps and when she gets excited, both of which could worsen as Dorey gets older. After months of therapy, Dorey can now walk regularly on all four legs. She is indeed a miracle puppy! However, her spine may worsen, and there is no guarantee that she will always be as mobile as she is now. Applicants should ask themselves if they can afford continued therapy for Dorey.

To prevent injury, Dorey should not be allowed to jump on or off of furniture or use stairs. Because of her weak hind end, Dorey is prone to neck injury. Dorey is potty trained, and does her best to hold it when she can. As her back and leg muscle strength has improved, so has her continence. Foster mom has found that diapers are helpful at bedtime and when Dorey is out in public places.

She can certainly wear diapers during other times, but she must be changed and have her skin cleansed regularly. Children are her favorite, but adults are sure to get lots of attention from Dorey too. Dorey seeks out children and her favorite room at church is the nursery. Dorey has exhibited some nipping behavior during play with her foster mom and would benefit from continued training.

Any children in her forever home would have to be responsible, 12 years or older to understand the gravity of protecting her from spinal injury.

Even with the best preventative care, Dorey may become paralyzed at any time, in which case her care needs and costs will ificantly increase and stay at that higher level. Again, because of her pre-existing condition, insurance would not cover these costs. All of these changes for Dorey will mean lifestyle changes for your family.

Dorey enjoys the company of other dogs and loves to play at the dog park. She is a social butterfly! Dorey would love to have siblings. Although she loves to play and socialize, this activity creates opportunity for injury.

Any dog siblings would need to be smaller than Dorey with gentle personalities. Dorey loves her daily walks, and has worked up to 4 miles a day, which she can now comfortably do. She is happier when kept physically and mentally active. Dorey is very energetic, in short bursts, which she alternates with short bursts of snore-filled naps! She also does great when she gets to visit Grandma in the suburbs where she has a fenced yard to explore.

A fenced yard would make it easier to reinforce potty training, especially in the morning. However, Dorey is trained to use pee p and has minimal accidents with her current routine. She frequently accompanies her foster mom to the office and sports her cutest diaper! Her absolute one love is children — she prefers being with them above being with adults and is extremely tolerant and gentle with them. She always likes to be touching someone, whether sleeping, or sitting in the pew at church, or watching TV on the couch.

She has the sweetest personality, just like Dory the Disney fish — justkeepswimming! She has no idea she is disabled or different, she just loves everyone!
