💫Happy Foster Friday! 💫 🌠Wish had her first vet appointment and she’s a bit younger than first thought- she’s about 4.5 months old. 🌠Wish is the ultimate poster child for "So you think you want a Pointer puppy??!!" Haha! She is very smart, super happy, full of energy, loves to play fetch, is a fast learner, and wants to nibble on everything in site! Wish is still “mouthing” everything she can, so we will be definitely working on that as I douse myself in Bitter Apple...lol! 🌠Although Wish Loves kids, because of her lack of manners and mouthing, Wish may not be good unsupervised with small children until further training.
🌠Wish loves playing with other dogs! She actually got Limoncello to engage in play (Cello ONLY plays with Lager, so that’s a pretty big deal!) Hooch is in his glory, as no one generally plays with him- but Wish will play with him all day! She is doing well with “sit,” and we are also working on “come.”
🌠She has only one accident in the house her first day home with us, and one accident in the crate so far!.
🌠Wish has some medical issues we are working through. Her appetite and weight are not up to par so we will be focusing on that. Wish’s lymph nodes are swollen (blood work showed nothing major), and also has what was determined to be a past and untreated physeal fracture/Salter-Harris fracture. This has caused her to have an abnormal gait and limted mobility in her right leg due to an irregular humeral head.
🌠That all being said - she is a VERY sweet and happy puppy and will make a wonderful addition to a family, but she will surely need someone who is experienced with Pointers, puppy tolerant, and willing to do training. Although we can not determine the long-term prognosis of her right leg at this time, Wish most likely may not be a a good choice for a running partner or hunting buddy. 🌠Due to her medical status, her adoption availability will be “on hold” until her follow up. She will also be spayed before her adoption.
