Kanao is a special needs dog ( Kanao has mild Epilepsy ). Please read through the entire adoption ad carefully before applying. Applicants will only be contacted if they meet the preliminary adoption requirements.Kanao was rescued from a puppy mill in Taiwan in December 2020. She is a gentle, loving and sweet girl. She has had the following veterinary care: 1. spayed; 2. microchipped; 3. blood panel; 4. up to date on vaccinations; 5. SNAP® 4Dx® D; 6. Polymerase Chain Reaction PCR Test; 7. X-rays to screen for hip issues and urinary tract stones; 8. dental cleaning. All of her medical exams showed no issues and so” Kanao” flew to Vancouver this February- 2021. Unfortunately, she had her first seizure on March 3. Since then she has had two more seizures: May 10 and June 10. Her seizures do seem mild and stop after a couple minutes. She has been to the vet here in Vancouver for her seizures and at this time there is no medication required. However, her new adoptive family must have time to monitor her for seizure activity. “Kanao” eats well, sleeps well and loves to play with her foster furry siblings. She is a bit unsure about the outside world and did not enjoy walks in the beginning. However, she does not need lot of exercise. If her family could take her for a short walk of about 30 minutes twice a day, that would be enough for her. – Energy level : low to medium. -Good with dogs : yes. – Good with kids : yes. – Good with cats : yes. – Good with people : yes. “Kanao” needs a family that doesn’t mind her epilepsy issue and is willing to provide her with a loving forever home.
