HECATE is a full-bred Weimaraner who is looking for a home sympathetic to the breed and her needs. This is likely to be a long-term foster home, though adoption always remains a possibility.
HECATE has a leg deformity that does not stop her loving life – she runs, she plays, she rolls, she cuddles! But it does undoubtedly put people off because of fear of unknown vet bills in the longer term. So we are looking for a long-term foster home for her where she will be loved unconditionally and will happily return that love – and vet’s bills will be taken care of.
Despite the pain she must have suffered, her temperament is second to none – she loves people and the company of other dogs. Cats are so far outside her experience.
HECATE has learned resilience and determination to not let anything get in her way of enjoying herself. Until recently she did not appear to have benefited from a great deal of close human contact – but now there is nothing she likes better than a good belly rub and a cuddle.
HECATE’s credentials for home living are excellent, as is her ability to travel in a car. She has most of the basic commands, though her leg makes sitting difficult. Lying down is much preferred. Although suffering initially from separation anxiety, her time spent in a homely pension as “comfort dog” to make uncertain and scared visitors feel at home, has helped and this is no longer a problem. She has also muscled up quite considerably, making her movement much less ungainly than it was.
During her time with LesAmis we have taken specialist orthopaedic vet advice and HECATE has had a full examination with a view to improving her movement. It transpires that she has an unattended broken femur since she was very young and she is still only just 2 years old. They recommend that it is now best to do no surgery at all. Her hips, pelvis and vertebrae have adjusted to the point where they would be compromised if her leg were operated on. We have been assured and reassured that she is in no pain. However, she would benefit from regular osteopath and hydrotherapy treatments – another reason to offer a long-term foster situation for her.
HECATE is currently in Department 64 (Pyrenees Atlantiques) but could be fostered anywhere in France with the right family.
