Update: Well I am still a cute little guy that is full of love and playful as can be. I have been seizure free now for 8 months. We finally got my meds figured out and my seizures are under control and my liver levels are perfect. I am full of energy and LOVE to play with the other dogs and even the cats that I live with. I would really love to have a play mate in my forever home. I am use to having 3 other dogs and anywhere from 2-6 kittens around. I love to be out in the back yard and just run and play. I will even just run and play if the other dogs dont want to. I would do best with a fenced yard as I do have a tendency to wonder if I am out front and mom says I have selective hearing at times cause I dont always come when called. For a little guy foster moms says I have alot of energy. I need to get out and run and play or go for a long walk. I do love my walks and walk super good on a leash too. I will require my seizure meds and suppliment 2x a day but my foster mom says that it is super easy. She just mixes it in with my food. I am potty trained and love my kennel. I go right in when foster mom heads off to work. I love to snuggle and be close to you, oh and at night I LOVE to sleep down under the covers and curl up by you. This is a must! I am a great cuddler and you wont be able to resist me. I am not a fan of the cold so I will need some cute coats. Foster mom loves to dress me up in little sweaters.
12/30/13 - I am just a tiny little guy full of love, determination, and cuddles! I was saved from a high kill shelter in Missouri and immediately fell in love with my foster family! I currently live with 2 German Shepherds, a Jack Russel terrier mix, and a couple cats. Everyone that has met me has instantly fallen in love with my super cute ears!!
After a short time my foster mom noticed that I was acting really weird and wouldn't move. She picked me up, brought me downstairs, and could tell something was wrong. I had a blank look in my eyes. She made an appointment at the vet that same day. While in the exam room, I had a seizure. They did a bunch of tests on my poor little body, couldn't figure out what was wrong, so they decided to send me home with some medications. No sooner than I got in the car and into my travel bed, I had another seizure. My foster mom rushed me back inside saying something's not right. They did a few more things but couldn't understand why I was having these seizures with the medication they gave me after the first. They rushed me to the emergency vet because it was closing time. While at the E-vet, I had another seizure so they sedated me to see if that helped and to hopefully prevent me from having another one. They ran a few more tests throughout the night, but still no answers. When they woke me up in the morning to try to get me to eat something, I had another seizure. They recommended that I be, well, we won't go down that road! They sedated me again and told my foster mom to come see me around 3pm. The news didn't look good, but there was something inside of me that would NOT give up. When she came, they brought me to her. I perked up my little head, looked her in the eyes, tail wagging, and that was it! The life had came back into my eyes, I was walking around the little room, and boy did I ever have to go potty! A LOT!! The doctor came in to see me and even though I was somewhat normal again, she didn't have much to say other than I could possibly have distemper (huh? My temper is amazing!!), or something neurological wrong with me that would require MANY more tests costing a lot of money! She said that it would be best to, well, again, not going to say the word! My foster mom said she was taking me home and we would deal with what would happen, if it happened again! That was a while ago now and I've, thankfully, been seizure free!! I was on a seizure medication that was supposed to control them, but it was also bad for my liver. The bloodwork that I had proved this, so my regular vet switched me to a better medication that wouldn't affect my liver so bad. My counts were 6 times higher than they should've been! Ouch!
I went back for some more bloodwork a few weeks after the switch and the liver count was still high but only about double what it should be. I've been told that I'm still not "out of the woods yet" (please don't put me in the woods!!), there's a few more tests they would like to run, but this is pretty expensive! I've started my own facebook page now for all of you to follow my progress and pray for me! https://www.facebook.com/pages/Little-Waffles/1397519320515386
I also have a fundraising link and would like to ask that you help me out by donating even a couple dollars towards my care! Every dollar, every penny counts! They would like to do a MRI on me and I've heard it might cost somewhere around $1500! Yikes!! Please help share my story and info so that people can see how adorable I am, how much spunk I have, and my extremely strong will to live!! http://www.razoo.com/story/Please-Help-Little-Waffles-1
I appreciate all of you and wish that I could meet every single one of you!! Thank you for helping me find out what's mysteriously wrong with me!!
