Brodie is a NM 5yo bundle of cuddles! He is seriously the sweetest guy ever. He wants nothing but to be with him human.
When the vet calls and says “I’ve never seen this in 30 years of practice…”
Brodie is an interesting case. He was surrendered because he was having potty issues. Turns out, this boy has an open vertebra! His L7 has no top! It’s like walking along and coming to an open manhole, looking in, and seeing the spine. While the vet does not want to call it Spina Bifida, he also does not want to say it is not SB. What it comes down to, is Brodie needs to wear diapers.
When we first got Brodie, his back leg was completely atrophied and he refused to use the stairs. With lots of love, patience, and physical therapy, Brodie is flying up and down stairs and tearing across the yard. He still tucks the leg occasionally when he gets the zoomies, but it doesn’t impede his abilities.
Brodie has been neutered and is up to date on vaccines. His last full panel bloodwork all came back 100% normal.
Brodie did have 13 teeth removed! He will need his kibble meals softened over night but does not need canned food.
This little man is so passive. Even the grumpy dogs fall in love with him!
Brodie has tried out a couple different homes. Unfortunately, his diaper issues have kept him from finding his forever home. Every one who meets him immediately falls for him. He just wants his human to be happy and will do anything for you.
Please be aware of Brodie’s medical issue and really think about if you can handle it. He will be fine in a home with another dog or with children over 12. He has been around older, calm cats. It would be best if someone worked from home or, at the least, is able to stop by at lunch to change him. He is crate trained and has no problem sleeping in it. Of course, he would rather be with you and is a bit of a bed hog.
