Ducky – Adopted!!!

Learning Crate Training!

Learning House Breaking! 

Introducing Ducky! This sweet girl is a part of our (all now adopted!) group of ten chihuahua mix puppies. We knew Ducky was a little special so she needed some extra time with us to really get to know her.

In that time, we learned a few things about her!

Ducky has congenital bilateral vestibular syndrome. This condition does not affect her lifespan, require any medication, nor require special medical considerations and she’s a very happy (but wobbly!) girl. What congenital bilateral vestibular does mean for Ducky is she cannot balance well and is deaf-making learning certain tasks (house training, walking on a leash) a little harder for Ducky than your average pup- but she’s working hard to get them down!

Here is a video that showcases how Ducky’s birth defect affects her. 

Besides that, Ducky is just like any pup. She loves her humans and all of her animal friends and is learning everything other puppies her age are – including that fingers aren’t chew toys!

This tiny special girl need a special home who will be committed to loving her as she is for her entire life. Is that you?
