What is something you love about your pet? What else should someone know about your pet?: 
Dida loves to keep your feet warm when she sleeps with you by burrowing underneath the blankets. She doesn’t mind to chill in the bathroom and make your dirty clothes pile a nice bed while you’re taking a shower, and she will help you dry off by licking your legs when you step out. Toys are her favorite thing and she loves to have a wide variety, because variety is the spice of life. She loves other humans and dogs so much! But many of them cannot deal with her energy level. She’s got hops- I’ve seen this dogs back feet at the top of a door frame during a jump. She’s not a fan of kisses from you and she doesn’t give hers freely either, but she will tolerate them patiently because she knows you need it. She adores car rides, but has a habit of standing on the console and blocking your rear view. She’s fairly intelligent, but can never grasp her own strength. She has funny little poots a lot but they rarely ever stink. She is trained to “go to bed” (crate), sit, paw and switch (shake with both paws), lay down, and wait. She lets you know that she needs to go potty by whining (incessantly until you do.) She is very calm during bathing time and lets you scrub her down without issue, and is an absolute serene angel when you clip her nails. She is very attention needy, but can sometimes occupy herself if you are too busy for cuddles. This one is probably the most important, and is why we cannot keep her- she has canine epilepsy. She’s medicated and the vets always say that she will live a long and happy life. If she has her medication as prescribed, we can keep the seizures at bay. Her dose will likely have to be increased soon though, or be used in conjunction with another med because she had her first breakout seizures while being properly medicated upon writing this. The type of seizures that she has are cluster seizures, so prevention is key (they’re harder to stop than to prevent.) But something that’s happening is that every time she has an episode, it’s as if she’s losing brain cells. She forgets her commands, forgets that she’s potty trained, she forgets how to act civilized at all. It slowly comes back over the course of a couple of days, but now she’s regressed to the point that she’s become extremely hard to deal with in our lifestyle and living space. She needs space where she can run, or an owner that has time and resources to take her for exercise every day, and she really wants a doggie pal, she told me so. She also needs someone who has the resources to pay for her medications and vet visits on a regular basis, and could possibly afford to have some training (she jumps really hard when she’s excited, and has caused injury to others as a result.)
