Boo, Baby Girl, Remus, and CocoIn a litter of Flatcoat Retrievers there were 4 pups (out of 8) who had some difficulty with their sense of balance (called vestibular disorder, evaluated at Purdue vet, quite rare), resulting in a bit of an odd gait. It does not prevent them from regular running and playing, just not as fast or agile as the unaffected pups. They also have a condition in their eyes, which mostly has no effect at all, but in one pup caused blindness, and in one other, sight in one eye affected. The ophthalmologist and I surmise that these two things are somehow linked, but because they are so rare, not much is known.

They are 16 months old at this point.

 

Coco has a great personality, socializes and plays well with the other pups, as well as entertains herself with toys easily. she even likes to retrieve. As with all the affected pups, she has a goofy gait, swinging her hips a bit, and has one affect- ed blue eye, which may be blind on the left side, but it does not seem to affect her. (Coco is spayed).

 

Boo is totally blind at this point but does not seem to care. He chases after whichever dog is running with a toy. He loves playing with the girl dogs, uses his paws a lot. It takes some dogs a while to adapt to his play style, and he does better with the girls than the boys right now, who don't put up with his antics as well. He gets into trouble just like his siblings. It is amazing to watch him use his senses to find his toys around the yard. He also loves playing with the Weimaraner next door. He is outgoing and confident. We got him a Babble ball, which makes sounds when it moves, which he totally loves.

 

Baby girl, or BG, is the smallest of the group, but not by much. She went through a rock eating phase, resulting in sur- gery, and was spayed at the time. She plays very well with the other two, loves to run, usually to sprint, because her legs are not as long as the others, so she isn't quite as fast..

 

Remus is the fourth affected pup and has been adopted. Aside from extraction of a retained puppy tooth, he remains healthy and happy. He has only tried to eat a friends phone a few times, but she needed a new phone anyway! BG and Boo spent two weeks at her house over the summer while I was on vacation, and though it took a little time, they all adapted fine.

Hi, I'm Gallagher, but I'm not a comedian, and I don't know if I like watermelon!  I do know I'm a very sweet 9 year old Golden/Lab mix boy.  A shelter found me walking the streets of Indianapolis, and they asked GRRACE if I could be part of the GRRACE family.  I'm so happy I got GRRACE'd!   Some of my favorite things include snuggling, getting to go on walks, getting petted by everyone I meet, and exploring my environment.  I've heard my Foster Mom tell people that I'm one of the sweetest boys she's ever met!  I'm pretty calm most of the time, but I do get excited when it's time to go on a walk. I like being around other dogs I can play and hang out with, but I have some food aggression so I need to eat alone.   Also, I am current on my vaccinations, neutered, and completely house-trained.   In my forever home, I'd love to get lots of snuggle time from my family.  And I'd really like to have an older dog brother or sister that is calm like me, can go on walks with me, play with me, and cuddle with me. Just remember, I need to eat alone...I'm not a snob, just protective of my food!  I'd also like to have a fenced back yard so I feel safe and secure when I'm outside.  I haven't been around cats or human children, so I'm not sure what I think about them.

I’m Piper, a very petite (45 lb.) 11 month old girl with a beautiful lustrous red coat. I am spayed, micro-chipped, and current on all my vaccinations. I’m housebroken and have been a very good house dog in my foster home. I am a bit shy and have led a somewhat sheltered life. I would love to have more positive experiences just to build my confidence!  I am still working on basic commands but would benefit greatly from basic obedience training. I will flourish with each positive experience I have – I’m ready to be all that I can be!  Did I mention I am a love sponge and adore snuggling?  I am high energy when there’s room to run and enjoy chasing after birds & critters in the big yard at my foster home, but I settle beautifully once I’ve had enough exercise. I just learned that I love chasing Frisbees – I’m a Fly Girl!  Because I'm a Fly Girl, I must have a yard with a structural fence.   I do love being around my family, and being separated is hard for me. I may kick up a little fuss, but I eventually settle. My original family said I get along with other dogs and kids, but because of my energy and need for training, I would do best in a home with older children and gentle dogs. My foster family has a cat, and I haven't learned how to safely play with the cat, so cats are probably a no-no.  I must say that I don’t care too much for my crate, but my foster family thinks I don't need one because I haven't been destructive or gotten into any trouble.   I'm still a puppy so I have lots to learn, but I promise to give back every ounce of training and love invested in me!
