Chihuahua - Dachshund - Adult - Female
Adoptable Small Mix AlteredUp-to-date with routine shots

Winnie is a five pound three year old Chihuahua/Dachshund mix that came to rescue as a puppy. It became evident early when entering foster care that Winnie had a problem with her front legs. They began to bow and turn at an unusual position. Upon x-rays, it was determined that one growth plate in her leg had closed but the growth plate on the other side remained opened causing the leg to turn outward. She had surgery at about 6 months old to try and reopen the closed growth plate and allow the leg to straighten out. Unfortunately, the surgery did not work. It is possible to try to correct the leg now as an adult, but it will be include breaking her leg and may not work. Her adoptive family will need to be aware of her condition and prevent her from jumping hard with her front legs to prevent a future break.

Winnie is current on all vaccinations, heartworm negative, microchipped, and spayed. Her adoption fee is $350.00.
