Date of birth: approx. Feb 2008
Location: Charlotte, NC
She is a true family dog and loves everybody.
The people of the rescue where she resides say she is one of the most affectionate dogs they ever had. Her favorite past time is to give hugs and kisses. She has no issues with other dogs and is very playful.
So how come she still hasn't found a forever home?
Shiloh was diagnosed with hip dysplasia that was severe enough that it required a surgery on both hips. Post-operative care is a big commitment.
Shiloh is now fully recovered from her surgeries!
She made it through the surgeries and rehabilitation programs without loosing her spirit and sweet disposition. Her special affectionate personality left intact.
She underwent bilateral Femoral Head/Neck Ostectomy (FHO).
Femoral Head/Neck Ostectomy (FHO) is the removal of the femoral head in order to prevent bone rubbing on bone. Fibrous tissue will form a false joint connecting the two bones.
Long term prognosis after successful FHO surgery is excellent.
The source of discomfort and worsening of degenerative joint disease is no longer a concern. It will be important to keep her on the slim side and her muscles strong.
She is ready to be your faithful companion.
