Stormy is completely deaf and blind in one eye. She cannot manage stairs (though she can do short pet stairs or a ramp up to the bed). She is house trained with access to the outside but will pee on any towels, rugs or blankets left on the floor. Both her back knees are bad and one of her ankles is also wobbly. She may need extensive surgery after she gains some weight and puts on some muscle. Currently she is underweight and a lot of her medical problems probably stem from malnutrition and neglect. Her teeth are not properly developed and she cannot eat kibble and must be on a soft and/or raw diet.
Other than that Stormy is a very friendly girl! She’s not afraid of other dogs, of any size, and likes to meet them. She is 100% a lap dog who just wants to hang out with you, in a sling or in your shirt. She will bark when she knows your home and can’t get to you (in the other room, bottom of the stairs etc) but doesn’t appear to have separation anxiety when she knows you’ve left.
Stormy has a very short muzzle probably due to backyard breeding which causes some audible breath sounds and may lead to further complications as she gets older.
