This sweet (3yo NM) boy has so much love to give and quite the personality. Adopting a paralyzed dog isn’t the right choice for every pet owner, but if you decide to go for it, the experience can be life-changing.
He is happy spending time cuddling, chasing you on the lawn, and then taking a little siesta in his playpen. He has been attending laser and physical therapy and has had some positive results. RMFBR will continue to cover his physical therapy until the end of the year. Please keep in mind that he may not regain full use of his rear legs. He has been set up with his wheels and they will go with him. Click to see him run: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1r9jtXYFSFRvKapMpE7DHmasIOXkW5w_W/view?usp=sharing
Feet, furniture, and anything else is potential victim to this crazy boy. Currently he is a Home Depot celebrity. Bain is being fostered by a family with two female dogs, his same size and does well. Bain’s perfect family would be someone who works from home or is retired, has a same sized female dog(s) or has no other pets, and older kids. He resources guards his food, toys, playpen, and crate if you have another dog all toys will need to be put away. So, if your current fur baby loves toys Bain may not be a good fit. Play will need to be monitored closely with roughhousing stopped right away.
Bain enjoys his crate, has a playpen, knows how to use a doggy door, but has urinary incontinence. He does not have any issues with his bowels or urinary emptying, but at times he cannot voluntarily control them. He will also benefit from his new home continuing to work on flexibility & stretching with daily 5-10 minute exercises. He loves baths and takes them often, he does have belly bands that he wears from time to time but over wearing them can lead to sores.
Bain is neutered, and up to date on vaccines. If you are interested we ask that you apply by submitting an application and an email explaining why your home is perfect for Bain that will be reviewed by the board. If you have kids under 14, dogs larger than 30 lbs, or multilevel home you may not be considered. A home visit may be required and a vet letter of recommendation is encouraged. Bain will placed in the home best for them. So many of you have wonderful homes, Bain’s safety and happiness is our top priority. Please show proof of support for RMFBR. This is done by volunteering (ie one of our events or fundraisers you’ve worked), being a previous foster, or monthly donations. We do this because we love those of you who are dedicated to rescue.
