Critter Chronicles: Pablo and Paco

PABLO AND PACO

Pablo and Paco are brothers that have special needs. They have a condition called cerebellar hypoplasia. They are very independent and lovable but need help doing a few things. Both have trouble balancing, so it’s hard for them to walk normally. They get around just fine but it’s a little different than a ‘normal’ dogs. Also their head bobs making it a little difficult to eat and drink, but they manage. Pablo and Paco have the same mental alertness as normal dogs. Their general health is not affected by the syndrome. They have been living in a foster home and are doing great. They love to play with each other and the other three dogs in the family. Pablo and Paco can be adopted together or separately. Since they are in a foster home, please call the shelter for an appointment, if you would like to meet them.
