UPDATE: 

Nugget is truly a sweet dog, though he does face some challenges that may not entirely resolve over time. More information on his background may help explain some of his issues. For instance, he occasionally barks at what seems like nothing, and it's hard to pinpoint why. Despite this, he's comfortable at my home. He enjoys his outings, though he tends to walk very slowly, exploring the outside mostly through his sense of smell due to his limited hearing and vision. He navigates his environment cautiously, often not responding visually or audibly when called, which suggests he may not fully perceive where sounds or movements are coming from.  Nugget is still working on his house training and currently wears a belly band to manage any accidents effectively. There have been a few instances where he's had accidents on his bed and mine, particularly if the band shifts.  Additionally, Nugget is quite shy around new people and other dogs, often expressing his nervousness through a distinctive crying bark when he's in their presence.  Nugget can be quite selective with his food preferences, and it seems he may have been in an environment where he had to compete and fight for his food. He did not want to eat the hard food or the treats (Nulu brand) that I initially offered. To accommodate his tastes, I visited a specialty food store and purchased some freeze-dried food, which he thoroughly enjoys. I've also introduced some knee bones to his diet, and he seems to love those as well. Now, when I feed him, he approaches his meals with great fervor, very eagerly consuming his food as if it's a rare treat.   Additionally, I am continuing with his prescribed steroid medication as directed.  Nugget continues the habit of walking in circles, which appears to have a soothing effect on him, and responds with excitement and tail wagging whenever I express affection towards him.  Nugget has been with his foster family for a few months now. He loves laying outside on a sunny day and cuddling on your lap. Nugget does walk in circles sometimes and is still working on potty training. He doesn't mind wearing a belly band and likes wearing a calming jacket. Nugget specializes in being ridiculously adorable and would love a forever home. He does fine with his foster siblings Duncan the dachshund and Sophie Chiweenie.

 

Nugget is a new arrival to CTDR as an owner surrender due to his owners not being able to care for his special needs.  He does have hydrocephalus which causes him to have a dome shaped skull caused by cerebrospinal fluid that has leaked inside the skull.  He is currently on medication to help him with his coordination and other issues.  He is the cutest little guy and would love to have a foster or a forever home by Christmas.  If interested in this precious little guy, please complete an application at www.ctdr.org.
