Moonsong Foster Malamutes >> Mesha
Size: Large | Age: Adult | Gender: Female | Breed: Alaskan Malamute - SPECIAL NEEDS
Hi, my name is Mesha, aka Princess Pea, because I am as sweet as can be! I have the most sunny disposition you will ever come across and a face that will melt your heart. I am a very special girl that will need someone to help me with my very special needs. I came into rescue back in July of 2012 and my rear legs were paralyzed from a parasite that attacked my spinal nerves which caused my legs to be very stiff and left me unable to use them. Moonsong and my foster Mom tried for several months with physical therapy to try and help me regain some use in my legs but because I was still growing and developing they were unable to help me. My legs became deformed and caused a lot of pain for me since I still had some feeling left in them. The decision was made with the help of several Vets to amputate both rear legs and alleviate my pain. Thanks to several donors we were able to perform the surgery the end of November 2012. I am so much happier now without my legs that just got in my way and I don't have that pain any longer. I am excited to play again!
I am a very mellow sweet girl for a Mal and all that I have been through but I still like to chase cats when I get a chance. I think I may finally be able to catch them since I don't have those legs any longer! I will probably never be fully potty trained because I have limited control from what happened to me but I try my best to hold it. My foster Mom says if you can stick to a schedule I am pretty good. I love my foster brother and sister right now and would love to have a playmate, probably best if it is a boy. I would really like a home where someone can be around most of the time so I don't have any accidents and can be properly cared for. If you have the time and lots of patience and love for me then I am your girl and promise to give lots of sweet kisses.
Due to Mesha's special needs issues, she will live out her life with her loving foster family.
