Health
Vaccinations up to date, spayed / neutered, special needs. Ralphie was officially diagnosed with Central Diabetes Insipidus (CDI) on December 12th. What this meant was that Ralphie’s body couldn’t regulate fluids because his pituitary gland wasn’t producing enough of the antidiuretic hormone called ADH, and this was what was causing his extreme thirst and excessive urination. Although there’s technically no “cure” for CDI, there is some good news: it can be pretty easily managed with just daily oral medication. Ralphie has been on the meds for a few weeks now and the improvement is drastic!.
Good in a home with

Meet Ralphie

Ralphie is a wonderful older gentleman with the most adorable underbite and personality for days. He loves to cuddle, is super smart, extremely well trained (thanks to his foster mom, Allison) and is available to go home with you!

Ralphie was found as a stray with several tumors on his underside and scrotum, some raw and some ruptured. Those have been surgically removed and he has fully recovered. After what must have been a painful and uncertain time, he is now looking forward to finding his forever home.

Ralphie is around eight-years-old, loved every human he meets, and would like to be the only pet in the home. Did we mention his underbite? Can you even handle how cute it is!?
