This sweet (4yo NM) boy is up to date on vaccines; he has so much love to give and quite the personality. When he loves, he loves 100%. Bain was attacked by a large dog and lost the use of his legs. Because of physical therapy, he is back at 90%. While this is the best he may get, he rarely uses his cart. His PT will need to be continued in his new home. This can be done in the home once his family is shown how to do it.
Bain has slowly regained control of his bladder. When excited, he does still dribble. This is easily maintained by him wearing belly bands if you know that company is stopping by.
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 for two months at his new home. 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
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 home often, or is retired. He does do well being left in his playpen or even out with for a couple of hours. He has two foster sisters that are same sized female dog(s) and he would do well with a small female companion and possibility a submissive male. He has improved greatly about his resource guarding of his food, toys, playpen, crate, and sharing of toys as he has gained more trust with his foster sisters and family.
Bain tolerates his crate, but prefers his playpen, and knows how to use a doggy door. 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.
If you are interested we ask that you apply by submitting an application and an email to firstname.lastname@example.org explaining why your home is perfect for Bain that will be reviewed by the board. He does well with older kids that do not tease, but probably best if no dogs over 30 lbs. It is best if he is carried down stairs (he wants nothing more than to be your shadow) and he will follow you if you leave him. He can also climb stairs as he is very strong in his front legs. A home visit will be required and a vet letter of recommendation is encouraged. Bain will be placed in the home best for him. Bain’s safety and happiness are 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 rescuing.
Bain is currently located in Salt Lake City, UT, but applications will be considered for other states. Bain’s donation will be $250.
Bain is currently located in Salt Lake City, UT, and his current foster family would love to help train how to do PT and helping Bain integrate into the perfect family. They are willing to be available and for (occasional) daycare or boarding if needed. Applications will be considered for other states if the adoptee can arrange transport and a home visit.
Bain’s adoption donation is $250
