Meet Ralphie - Snuggly & Adorable

Meet Ralphie. This silly boy will keep you smiling, that's for sure. Ralphie was picked up as a stray but is now in Handsome Dan's Rescue foster care.

He is potty trained, crate trained, and thanks to his foster mom, Allison, he knows tons of fun commands.

Ralphie prefers to be the only pet in the home. He has had some medical issues but is doing much better now.

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!

For questions please email Allison allison.k.rogers@gmail.com
