GERDY IS PISTACHE’S GUARDIAN ANGEL, BUT NOW WE NEED HELP FINDING A FOREVER HOME FOR HER
At the young age of 9 months, Pistache was showing signs of knee discomfort. A visit to a surgical specialist and we learned that this girl needs double-knee surgery.
Gerdy’s will handle all expenses but we urgently need a foster-to-adopt home to care for her post surgery. This will be done in two stages of 8-10 weeks of cage rest and a gradual return to activity with physio and home exercise. The surgery will give Pistache a new lease on life and a chance to be a normal active pup. She deserves it!
This very sweet natured German Shepherd mix is, under normal circumstances, super active and loves to rough house with other dogs. Unfortunately her activity has had to be controlled for now until her surgery. Right now leisurely walks are great, stairs and running are not.
Because of her knee issues she has become a bit anxious and has lost her confidence walking on slippery floors and going down stairs. She is still getting used to car rides but is Ok travelling while in her covered crate.
Pistache is super smart and learns really fast and she will have to be kept busy with mental stimulation during her convalescence. She is already crate trained so cage rest will be easier to manage.
Her best home would be with older children, someone home a good part of the day, if other dogs an older chill dog, minimal stairs and a fenced-in yard.
