Hallie (Lonely Heart) (Adoption Advocate)

American Pit Bull Terrier

 
Medium  |  Female

Gulfport, MS

 

Hallie is a 8 month old female spayed chocolate pit/ terrier mix. She has had a rough start to life. She came to the shelter and had ringworm and an upper respiratory infection. She immediately went into foster where her foster parent noticed her hips were abnormal. Pelvic radiographs revealed a painful condition called Legg Calve Perth. With this condition the neck of the femur is painfully resorbed by the body. Once Hallie was well from the ringworm and upper respiratory infection, she had her first femoral head osteotomy (FHO) surgery. She is currently receiving physical therapy for the side that was surgically repaired. She will need an FHO on the other hip once the other side is recovered and she can bear weight. Long term effects will be arthritis but this can be controlled with diet, exercise and medications.<br/> <br/>Hallie is the sweetest, most well-behaved puppy. She is working on potty training and doing quite well despite her health issues. She is very loving and thinks she is a lap puppy. She will make some lucky person a great forever friend. She is available for foster or foster-to-adopt. if you have any questions you can email me at hssmfostermom@gmail.com
