I am an incredibly sweet, 2-year old, female Rottie that was brought to the North Central animal Care Center as a stray. I have a chronic orthopedic condition where I walk plantigrade (meaning that I walk on the soles of my paws with the heel touching the ground) on all four limbs. This works for humans, but not for dogs! I need an orthopedic evaluation to determine what my best options are and a good loving home!...

Subj: URGENT!! Los Angeles A1045708 Handicapped Rottie- super time left

Those of you out there that love the special ones,
please allow your eyes -and all your senses- to meet this girl.

At first glance she is a very attractive, sensitive, two year old
Rottie. If you look into those eyes you can see the kindness
and the desire for protection.
Once you see more of this no name girl, you get
what the need for protection, is about.

We -having spoken to a couple different doctors about her-
deduce that she has walked on her 'elbows' her whole life.
They are callous from wear. She gets around fine...has formed
her own way of walking....and sort of progresses into a hop
when she is at a hurried pace.

It is heartbreaking to think that no one took the time to seek help for her when she was younger...but she did not wait. She came up with her own mode of transport.
She is a happy girl. She enjoys the belly rub as much as the next. And seems to genuinely not care when there is chaos around her at the shelter....and was happy to meet some pups the other day, who were new arrivals.

Though surgery is not an option from what medical feedback we have received....there is nothing standing in the way from someone who has room, a soft bed, maybe some grass for her to lay on...and most importantly, the space in their heart for someone that has worked hard to get by, survive and not complain.
...This DOG - ID#A1045708
I am an unaltered female, black and brown Rottweiler.
The shelter thinks I am about 2 years and 1 month old.
I have been at the shelter since Jul 08, 2009.
