Health Notes: Izzy came to hart from an ASNTF clinic and was showing signs of a neurological issue. Her first stop was to a vet who ran a battery of tests and ultimately diagnosed Izzy with cerebellar hypoplasia. Cerebellar hypoplasia means that part of her cerebellum has not developed. The working theory is that Izzy's mom had parvo while pregnant with Izzy.  In Izzy's case it has left her with some light tremors, slight lack of balance and coordination as well as exaggerated movements, especially when tired. The prognosis for dogs with cerebellar hypoplasia depends on the degree to which they are affected. While there is no treatment, the disease tends not to progress and dogs affected have normal lifespans.  In Izzy's case, she can run, play and cuddle with ease, so her life will continue to have a high quality of life. Izzy is up to date with DACPP, Bordatella, Rabies and is spayed and microchipped.

Behavior Notes: Izzy is a happy little puppy, who doesn't realize she has a disability. Due to her young age, she is working on potty training, learning not to nip hands, toes and limbs. She is crate trained, though sometimes she'll whine. She is good on leash, but foster home feels that's because she's wobbly when she walks sometimes so she has no choice. She is great with other dogs and loves attention from kids. She has not been around cats. She loves people, and will chase people down to say hi.
