Rhodey is a wheelchair dog. After suffering a spinal injury, Rhodey lost use of his back legs. After vet consultation it was determined that he does not have any feeling in the back legs or tail. Unfortunately, he was not a candidate for surgery. His condition means that he will also have a special bathroom routine. He does need his bladder manually expressed to urinate. He eats on a schedule so he defecates at approximately the same times each day. He can’t help it if he has to go sooner or later though.
Rhodey is kennel trained. He sleeps in a kennel at night to avoid any late night accidents in the house. He does pretty well when leashed in his wheelchair. All leash rules go out the window when he is in his butt harness or drag bag though. Rhodey is a great car rider. He loves to go for rides and tries to jump in the car himself. He is very treat motivated and would go with anyone for a little food.
Rhodey is great with other dogs. He runs along with everyone else when he’s in his cart or bag. He loves wrestling with puppies on the floor too. He does okay with cats but may need a slow introduction to them. The sound of his equipment typically scares the cats off in the foster home. Rhodey does not currently live with any children. He would do best with older children that are not as energetic as he is used to a quieter home. He’s met several children at events or at the vets office and loves them but will steal their food. He is a medium energy dog. He loves to go for walks or play with the other dogs in the back yard. He uses brain teaser toys and snuffle mats to help burn energy due to his condition.
Rhodey is the perfect dog. Despite losing function of his hind end, he’s the happiest, cuddliest little man. He loves ear scratches and belly rubs just like any other dog. He has no idea he is any different. He is FAST. Even when he’s not in his wheels, he will take off and be gone in no time. He can keep up with any dog using just his two legs.
