Cece was at the Berkeley Animal Care Services for about six months. This long stay actually did her quite a bit of good. When she arrived at the shelter she had clearly been bred, and she was untrained and unsocialized. Her time at the shelter gave her a chance to learn basic commands, attend training classes, and improve her behavior around other dogs.
Cece has a misaligned kneecap which will require surgery to fix, and she did not do well on the concrete floors at the shelter. She is now with a rescue organization, and volunteers have raised the money for the surgery. However, she needs a foster or adopter before the surgery can take place, because her current situation is not ideal for her recuperation. She will be on pain medication as she recovers, will be restricted to short walks at first, and needs a home that can make sure to give her the attention she needs as she recovers.
Cece is about five years old. She would prefer to be the only dog in a house, but she would be OK with a well-matched mate (though she doesn’t do well with smaller dogs). Her energy level is average at best – she does not require a great deal of exercise. She currently lives in Vallejo, CA about a half hour north of San Francisco. Facebook page here.
