MEET BEAU!  This little 11-lb, ~3-year-old, white Maltipoo mix (our best guess) came to us from the Palmdale shelter.  The family who brought him to the shelter reported that his parents were brother and sister. 🙁  Poor Beau was not blessed with good health.  He is hypothyroid (managed with daily pills) and has elevated liver enzymes (also managed with medication).  He also suffers from a neurological condition called syringomyelia, which in his case is caused by an underdeveloped cerebellum.  This condition manifests itself in Beau as seizure-like episodes where his legs stiffen and he can’t walk.  These episodes seem to occur most often when he is excited or stressed.  Unfortunately, there is no known treatment for syringomyelia.  Over the months we’ve had him, Beau’s episodes have become less frequent (maybe once or twice a day), and 95% of the time, he behaves like a normal, happy puppy!  We are hopeful that he will lead a long, relatively-healthy life.  And boy does he deserve it!  Beau is the sweetest pup you’ll ever meet.  He wags his tail at everyone he meets — human or canine!  He loves to play with toys (especially those that make noise!) and gnaw on bones.  He would do best in a home with another small, playful (but gentle) dog for companionship and to show him the way.  Respectful children over 8 years old would be fine.  Beau is a total doll who’s looking for a family that can embrace his special needs and love him the way we do.  Do you have room in your home and heart for this amazing boy?
