I was picked up off of the streets as a stray, and CEBR stepped up to take me in immediately. At that time, I needed an urgent (and expensive!) surgery to create a urethra, because I was born without a way for urine to exit my body. I’m not telling people about my life before that, but they think I was likely the product of intentional breeding for my “exotic colors,” and that I was probably discarded when it was discovered that I had other differences too. Although my beautiful coat is unique, and my eyes are striking (one blue, one brown ?).
Overall, I’m a really healthy boy, and I don’t take any medicines, but I do live with something called spina bifida. Although there are lots of levels of spina bifida, I’m told mine is relatively mild. I have no mobility differences at all (I love to run, jump, play, and can even do stairs) but I do wear a diaper because I do not have control of my potty. I also need someone to push on my tummy to help me empty my bladder a few times a day. I'm a very good boy and don't cause a fuss during this, I know it helps me. The vet says spina bifida is not progressive, so I won’t ever “get worse,” but I will be incontinent for life. It’s just who I am!
In truth, the diapers are no big deal (and I’ll never piddle on your carpet or drag you out to potty in a snowstorm!) and are easy to master quickly. I stand there while I get changed and then I get snacks for being a good boy! But it does mean I will need a special adopter that will be committed to me for life and won’t be away from me for really long periods of time since I will need regular diaper changes every 3-4 hours or so when I’m awake (I am fine overnight).
One more thing, I’d really prefer to be an only dog, so I get all of your attention to myself.
I’m gonna go back to chewing my ball now! Bye! -Enzo
