Xena was surrender to the shelter after the family who had her couldn't care for her any longer. She had been hit by a car and possible shot but was not properly treated, so she came in with a lot of raw spots from dragging herself around since she wasn't able to use her back legs. Since then, she has found herself a wheelchair and can get around just fine! She has even regained some strength in her legs and we hope in a home will be able to continue getting stronger!
Xena absolutely loves being with people. She is your typical dog who adores getting attention, hanging out with you, and resting her head in your lap. She has also done well around cats, small dogs, and kids! She is a little unsure of bigger dogs, but with a calmer, older pup, she would probably do just fine! She loves to play fetch with the kids and likes playing around in the dirt too- when she thinks nobody is watching.
Xena needs someone who can care for her in the state she's in, and who is willing to commit to her until she finds her furever home as we don't have a place to keep her at the shelter. Although she requires just a tad more work than your average pup, she is well worth it! Can you help her out?
