About the animal:


I’m looking for a forever home with an experienced dog owner for my eight-month-old Morkie (purebred Yorkshire terrier and a purebred Maltese) named Panda. I’m a first-time dog owner and my work schedule has not been conducive to having a puppy. With my work trips increasing and my time away more than it was before Panda – it’s proven a difficult adjustment for both of us. I would love to find her a stable, consistent, and happy home.

Panda is a super sweet, energetic, and playful little pup. When Panda was 3 months old, she had a series of seizures (the result of bacteria from a wound on her head that got into her brain) and needed to go into the hospital for five days. Panda’s health since then has been wonderful, she hasn’t exhibited any seizures in 5 months. After medication and care, her vet said she is free of illness and is back to being a happy puppy.

Going into the hospital at such a young age did have an impact on her. A lasting effect is nervousness about people touching her head or neck suddenly. I also live in a very busy urban center and it makes her anxious. My hope is that I can find a home for Panda that’s fairly quiet and calm, ideally with a backyard. Or with someone who is patient and has the time to help her overcome her anxieties.

I am heartbroken I don’t have the abilities to care for her currently but hope to find her the perfect family and home. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you!
