Hi! I’m Akira! I’m a 4-5 month old German shorthair pointer mix! I’ve warmed up to my foster family and I have to say they are pretty pawsome! I love playing with my big brother, sometimes we even sneak up on the couch together and my foster mom can’t resist. I love my nylon bones. I know sit and spin. I’m working on lay down but my foster mom says I’m pretty stubborn. She might be right. I am kennel trained and housed trained. I love taking walks and taking in all the new smells. My foster mom says I’m pretty clumsy. She doesn’t understand why I just fall off the couch, but really I think it’s a game. I like it here a lot, even have a big back yard to run and play in. I do take meds, but my mom says I take them like a champ and she has no issues ever! I would like even more to find my furrrrrrever home! It might take me a couple weeks to warm up to you but I promise you, you won’t regret it!
She was surrendered to Veterinary Emergency and Specialty Hospital for medical issues suffering from multiple seizures and extremely thin from consistent throwing up and diarrhea. Akira's labs did not show a reason for her generalized seizure disorder. She has a diagnosis of juvenile epilepsy. Statistically, most likely ideopathic epilepsy that after achieving control on anti epileptic drugs for at least 6 months may begin to very gradually wean off medications( like 4 to 12month weaning period). After her seizure early morning October 21st and starting phenobarbital, she has not had further seizure activity. She will need blood levels checked for phenobarb once or twice and regular checks of those and liver values every 6months while on the meds.
Please note: There is a refundable deposit of $75 for each animal that is unaltered (not spayed or neutered) at time of adoption. The deposit will be refunded in full upon proof of spay/neuter. If the animal is taken to a designated Beauties and Beasts veterinarian, the cost of spay/neuter is covered by the adoption donation.
