Meet Brodie (FKA Clifford 23-018 D)

Meet Brodie! This young GSD mix is eager to please and full of a zest for life. He loves to play with other dogs and would benefit from an active playmate that is willing to zoom through the yard and rough house. He is potty trained, crate trained, and very eager to please. He knows sit, shake, and down. He is gentle with humans and would do fine in a home with kiddos.

Brodie was adopted from us as a puppy and unfortunately returned a few weeks ago as his family could no longer care for him. Upon his return, we noticed Brodie had some issues gulping water and urinating frequently. After several weeks of testing, we learned that Brodie has a very rare condition called Diabetes Insipidus. This condition is well controlled with a mediation called Desmopressin and since starting the medications he has not had any issues and continues to live a completely normal life. He takes this medication 3X a day and happily accepts it in some peanut butter. He will need to remain on this medication for life, but his lifespan should not be negatiely impacted. Aside from needing annual bloodwork, his medical care should not be much different than a normal pup. The cost for his medication is about $40-45/month.

Brodie is a happy, vivacious, and loving boy that needs a home willing to give him the time, attention, and space he needs to finally be a normal dog. If you'd like to meet this handsome fella, please visit www.happyfeetpetrescue.com for an adoption application.
