Rufus and Delilah Dog Walking is featuring Eddie as the Los Angeles dog adoption of the week. Sweet Eddie is a lifetime supply of love and joy wrapped up in a tiny, portable package! This special little guy is a 1.5 year old Chihuahua that was born with congenital hydrocephalus “water on the brain”. He sometimes spins in circles, but he was evaluated by a neurologist at VCA West who ensures there is no reason he will not live a healthy and happy life. Eddie has no idea he is different – he’s playful, likes to go for walks, and just wants to snuggle and sleep in your arms
Thanks to The Rescue Train, Eddie is currently lovingly being cared for while waiting for his FuRRRRever home. The Rescue Train is a non-profit no kill organization dedicated to eliminating animal suffering and euthanasia through hands on rescue work, dedication to spay/neuter, education and awareness.
Eddie is a sweet dog who is potty training using pee pads and going outside. Housebreaking can be a challenge with him when his symptoms flare up but during those time he wears a belly-band to keep his home clean. Eddie occasionally suffers from narcolepsy and it’s mostly when he’s playing. And since he will only weigh about 5 pounds, he’ll always be tiny enough to be the perfect fit! Eddie is an excellent traveling companion and quietly sits in his car seat for car rides. Eddie’s ears perk up when he sees other dogs on TV and he loves trying to ‘talk’ to them! He’s a big fan of animal-shaped toys (pint-sized, like him) and toys that have food hidden in them.
Eddie is a resilient pup that has conquered everything life has thrown at him without discouragement. Like a lot of animals he doesn’t like change and his symptoms can flare up when things are new or he’s overstimulated. He is a tiny pup with a BIG outlook on life, and ready to join the perfect family for the rest of his life! Because of his small size and fragile nature, The Rescue Train will only consider an adult only or home with older children. Eddie is good with small to medium-sized dogs. He loves playing with his foster doggie brother in his foster home.
