#8980 Pihu Desi Dog

Adoption Pending
Small-size, Female, Adult Whippet x Labrador Retriever,
Pihu Desi Dog is up-to-date on her shots and has been spayed. She has special needs. Pihu Desi Dog is currently being fostered in Union Bridge, MD.

Meet Pihu (pronounced Pee-hoo) She is a one-year-old, 16-pound Desi Dog (or street dog) from New Delhi, India.

Pihu is an extraordinary little dog. As a tiny puppy living on the street in India, she was hit by a car, and her spine was broken in three places. She was rescued by the wonderful people at Kannan Animal Welfare (KAW), a dog rescue group in New Delhi, who nursed her back to health. One rear leg had to be amputated, and Pihu's other rear leg remains paralyzed. But her disabilities have not stopped her from getting around and living a full life. She is the sweetest, friendliest little girl who just wants to be loved.
A few words from the foster mum. I absolutely LOVE Pihu. She is such a ray of light, she bring joy to all whom she meets. She has been with me for 2 months and if you don't snap her up soon...I will... It is my goal to foster more dogs like Pihu and give them a chance at adoption. This is the only reason I haven't adopted her myself.

Now that she has come to the U.S., she is learning to use a wheelchair! Pihu has control of her bowel and bladder when in her crate. Pihu is not able to get all her urine out on her own but not to worry! Just a gentle squeeze in the right place, some cute diapers and she is good to go. Pihu is a snuggle bug and gets along well with the other dogs in the house.

Pihu arrived in the U.S. on March 2. Apply now to adopt this amazing pup!
