Ginny is a two year old Irish Setter lass, she has been neutered.
Ginny has a condition called megaesophagus, this is where the the esophagus (the tube that carries food and liquid between the mouth and stomach) dilates (gets larger) and loses motility (its ability to move food into the stomach).
Ginny was born with this condition and management is specific when it comes to feeding.
When she is fed her bottom has to be lower than her food source so that gravity helps it go down, she is also fed quite soft food which slips down easily.
The rest of the time she is a normal , happy, playful, affectionate lass. Loves games , has good recall and OK with others although we feel she would be better as a single dog or paired perhaps with a male dog.
Please think carefully before applying to add Ginny to your home ,any dog is a life time commitment but Ginny does need someone focussed on her but also someone who will not treat her as a "sick" dog!
Indie Rescue promise to cover any Veterinary costs now and in the future that are connected to her condition as it will have to be declared on any insurance policy.
We are more than happy to have a chat if you are interested and want to know more.
