Echo is an 18 month old Siberian Husky that came to Heath's Haven with hind end weakness when he was 7 months old. He was evaluated by the Neurological Specialists at WSU and was originally diagnosed with Myasthenia Gravis. Echo was put on a medication that helped at first, but after a few months it was no longer effective. He was taken back to the University for muscle and nerves biopsies that all came back negative, and he was taken off of the medication. Once the medication was discontinued, he improved significantly!
Echo is now an active, playful, typical Husky! He loves to sing with his other Husky friends at the rescue and loves to go for car rides and walks. Echo loves to play with all sizes/breeds of dogs, does great with cats and children, and he doesn't dig! Echo loves to meet new people and can be a bit curious so he will need a fenced yard so he doesn't adventure off on his own. He is neutered, microchipped, current on vaccines/deworming/flea & tick preventative, and he is crate trained.
Hannah is a playful, 1 year old mixed breed dog from Iran. She came to Heath's Haven Rescue paralyzed in the hind end due to a spinal injury when she was just 4-5 months old. As well as being paralyzed, her hind legs were permanently contracted tightly underneath her and required medically necessary amputation of both hind legs...don't tell her though! She has no idea she is different from any other dog!
Hannah loves to scoot around outside on soft surfaces like grass and snow. When she wants to go go a walk she enjoys being in her wheelchair and it will go with her to her forever home! Hannah gets along with dogs of all sizes and breeds and loves to wrestle and play! She does well around cats and children as well!
Due to her spinal injury Hannah is incontinent, which means she does not have any control over her bladder and bowels and she can not be house trained. She will need her bladder expressed 3 times per day, but don't worry it's really easy to learn and she doesn't mind holding still at all!
Hannah is current on vaccines/flea & tick preventative/dewormer, spayed, microchipped, and crate trained.
Blue is a 16 month old Pit Bull Terrier. When she was 6 months old she suddenly became paralyzed, and unfortunately, her owners could no longer care for her. She arrived at Heath's Haven when she was 10 months old and was evaluated by the Neurological Specialists and The Washington State University Veterinary Teaching Hospital. Unfortunately, too much time had passed between the time of her injury until the time of the evaluation, so surgery to help her regain the use of her hind end was not an option.
Blue gets around great in her wheelchair and it will go with her to her forever home! She loves to go on walks and is looking for a home that can express her bladder 3 times per day. She is incontinent (she can not control her bladder or bowels and can not be house trained), but learning how to express her bladder is really easy to learn and she doesn't mind it at all!
Blue is a social butterfly and loves people, but will do best in a home without other dogs. We are currently working with her on resource guarding (treats, toys, and attention) and she can become a bit jealous if another dogs tries to get something she wants all to herself. Due to these issues, we are also recommending a home without children or cats.
This lovely lady is spayed, microchipped, current on vaccines, current on flea/tick preventative, heartworm negative, and crate trained...all she needs is a home to call her own!
Eddie is a handsome, goofy, fun-loving, 3 year old Bernese Moutain Dog that came to Heath's Haven Rescue from Washington, D.C. after he had an embolism in his spine causing hind end paralysis. He regained the use of his hind end, but not his tail function, and he is still incontinent. Due to hygiene issues with his incontinence, as well as him being diagnosed with IBD (Irritable Bowel Disease), his tail was amputated. Regardless of all of his health issues, he is a happy, loving, high energy boy that would like a family of his own!
Eddie will always need to be on a RAW DIET due to his IBD. After months of struggling with soft stools, this has proven to be the only diet for him that does not cause intestinal upset and diarrhea. He will need his bladder expressed 3 times per day to prevent urinary tract infections and will need frequent grooming/bathing to keep his hind end clean. Although he is incontinent, he loves to be around people so he will not do well as an "outside only" dog. He loves spending the day outside with his other doggy friends, but needs to come inside at night and be with his family. He is crate trained (at bedtime to keep his "accidents" contained), neutered, current on vaccines, and microchipped.
