Scarlet (Scar to her friends) is a goofy, playful 6 month old Shar Pei mix from Magnolia, AR. She came into CCAPS with some pretty gnarly wounds on her back. They have healed but she still has the scars, but they are only on the outside. She loves people and is great with other pups. She has a silly little waddly walk and a wonderfully happy personality. She is available through Columbia County Animal Protection Society in Magnolia, AR. Here is her profile.
What a sweet pup. What’s wrong with her legs?
She’s up for adoption so I imagine she’s already been through a full physical. Every SPCA I’ve known does this to make sure a dog is okay to be adopted out. So if she had anything deeply wrong I imagine it would have been checked out by now.
Added: If you look at her profile and check the other pictures it looks like she’s very bowlegged… almost Buldog-like in stance. Considering she’s a Shar-Pei mix it’s possible there’s some Bulldog in her mix somewhere or some other bully-breed type dog which tends to have that bowlegged stance.
I hope you’re right. Here’s hoping that Scarlet finds a great home soon! 🙂
Scarlet and her brother are both super cute!
That looks like the inverse of the congenital knee/ankle subluxation my dog has. Regardless, whoever adopts her should get it checked out again and possibly corrected; my adoption agency convinced me it would just require physical therapy but $6000 later and it causes her to limp still (and it’s getting worse).
We are raising money to have her leg surgeries. You can follow her story here: https://www.facebook.com/scarlett.scars.3?ref=ts&fref=ts
She is a beautiful girl! Very sweet too! Hoping to get enough donations to cover her surgery!
If you wanted to meet her and consider adopting, where would you go? Im in el dorado.
