Every week we introduce you to a new pet looking for their forever home in our Central Texas Vet Pet Of The Week segment. Meet our new fury friend, Saisy!
When Saisy was just a couple months old, she was found abandoned in the woods near a motel in Dallas, and it was discovered that she couldn’t use her back legs. Once she came into Austin Pets Alive, the vet team determined that one leg needed to be amputated.
Saisy is learning how to use her wheelchair, but spends a lot of time in a puppy stroller so she doesn’t tire out her front legs right now as she grows up and gets big and strong. She does water therapy regularly with her foster to gain strength in those legs, too.
Saisy is a goofy, friendly, high energy, loving puppy. She loves kids, dogs, pretty much anything! Saisy loves her snuggle time on the couch with her foster mom and foster dog siblings. Saisy loves to swim and be in the pool, and play with other dogs. She’s still working up the courage to be alone, so an adopter who is more of a homebody, or an adopter with another dog, would be great for her.
