Please read the bio in full for answers to your questions. In the event you have a question that is not covered in the bio, please email [email protected]. If interested in adopting, please complete an adoption application which can be found at https://seniordoghaven.org/adoption-process/. Please note that because all our dogs live in foster homes, we are unable to set up meetings with a dog unless we have a completed adoption application on file. Adoptions must be about within an hour of Wilmington, DE for our volunteers to be able to conduct an in-person home visit. Meet Flora! Flora is a 6-year-old, 18 lb. Poodle mix who was rescued and brought to a shelter as part of a cruelty investigation. Partially paralyzed and suffering from chronic infections, this sweet girl needed a second chance. Flora was treated for her skin infections and a UTI. She had an extensive orthopedic workup, and it was determined that she will most likely not regain the use of her back legs. That being said good luck keeping up with this pup! Flora loves her wheelchair and zooms around in it every chance she gets. She can also scoot herself around the house with no problems. Flora is able to go to the bathroom without assistance but does wear a diaper. It will need to be changed several times a day. Paralyzed pups can be more prone to UTIs, so good hygiene is important and there may be some extra trips to the vet. (She does great at the vet) To help prevent urinary infections, Flora takes supplements and probiotics that cost $45 a month. Due to her sad start in life, Flora tends to be wary of new people and experiences. She will give a bark and try to leave the room. If her family goes slow with her, and lets her take her time, Flora will thrive. She is good with other dogs and would do best in a quieter home with no small children. Flora loves to be cuddled, picked up, and play with toys. She is happy sleeping in a dog bed and can play independently as well. One look in those big, brown eyes and your heart will melt. All Flora needs is a family that sees how special she is, and that a little extra work is nothing compared to the love she will give you in return. Please apply today!
