This is the spinning dog or Rodador as he is named at the Terseopolis shelter run by Estimacao. He is the dog Mom wanted to take and work with. He had distemper and suffered neurological damage. The vet doesn't think he will get better, but mom wanted to try because obviously no one will adopt him. He walks straight on a lead and when occupied he stops. Mom read that sometimes there is a great improvement if you work with them during the first year after the sickness. He has already lost months of therapy. It makes us so angry that no dog lover wold back us to help these special cases. Here we are fighting for survival instead of doing what we are good at, It is really a great loss of potential and an even greater loss for all the dogs that we could help if we had some backing. We like this dog a lot and have known him for a while. He could of had quality of ,individual attention and therapy and a friend to play with to distract him, if things hadn't gone so wrong. Mom has a programme for him all worked out in her head. Instead of that she has to worry about how to eat, I guess that what you humans call capitalism. Doesn't seem to work well for me from a dogs point of view. Below is a picture of him for someone special that I know who can't watch videos and follows our blog, Hi G! Sorry you can't see the video but this picture is for you. This dog reminds us so much of a puppy we gave away actually Pebble's puppy one of her four. His name was Bounty.
Here he is still circling with a very old dog that was lucky enough to get a real good owner today. It was one of the volunteers who we know well. He will be happy.

He is a beautiful boy and looks to be in good physical health. I'm sure he would benefit from Mom's rehab program, even if he didn't fully recover. I can imagine how frustrating it must be to not be able to help him at this time. You pack is in such a precarious personal situation. I'm just thankful that he is with the good people at Estimacao's shelter.

If it does turn out that you would be able to take him on, I would gladly contribute what I can to his rehab care costs.
