UPDATE

6/27/2021 FOSTER UPDATE: Latte is doing amazing!  She has such a calm demeanor….she is one chill dog!  As for training, she picking up quickly on housetraining and is comfortable in her crate.  She is not a chewer, but she has started to become interested in toys and bones. She will occasionally steal a sock if left out, and she will proudly parade it around.  Oh, Latte!

Latte had her 2 week post-surgery check up at the vet today. She is progressing exactly as planned!  She still has a lot of nerve damage so the vet expects the use of her left leg to be a very slow process.  He was encouraged to see her start to stand on all fours….Big step forward from her last visit!   We will continue with her exercises and start swim therapy in a few weeks!  Despite the restricted use of her leg, Skippy is totally mobile!  She doesn’t let anything slow her down!
This little girl has defied all odds.  She has so much love to give and will be a great addition to any family!

6/18/21 UPDATE: Lil Latte is a total angel!  She has the sweetest temperament and shows more of her personality every day.  She is such an easy dog!  She is very calm and just likes to go with the flow.  She LOVES to cuddle but she is also independent.  The perfect balance!!

Latte is very food motivated and gives the cutest wiggle and whine when it is meal time.  She has come such a long way with her training.  She will go outside on command because she knows there is a treat involved!
Medically, she continues to make progress!  She is starting to bear weight on her leg….which is a great sign for her recovery!  She is gaining strength each day!

6/14/21 UPDATE: Latte has been in foster care for a few days. First, I decided to nickname her Skippy…she is a tiny little peanut and loves to bounce around.  And, wow, what a sweetheart!  She instantly melted into my pack and is very trusting and affectionate.  She has a mellow personality….she just likes to go with the flow!

As for training, we are working on some of the basics.  Today was day 2 of house training and she has already made a lot of progress.  She is very smart and food motivated, so I’m confident that she will get the hang of it as we establish a routine.  She also loves hanging out in her crate – it’s her spot!  She sleeps there throughout the night.
Medically, she still has a way to go with rehab but she has made amazing progress!  I am working on rebuilding her strength with a few exercises.  She is able to motor on 3 legs (she is fast!) but I am working on having her walk with all fours.  She is starting to bear weight – which is a good sign!  She does not seem to be in any pain – just a happy, bouncy girl!  She has also started her first round of heartworm treatment so I am restricting activity while she recovers.  Final heartworm treatment in a few weeks!
Latte (aka Skippy) is a TOTAL love bug and would make a great addition to any family!
