Ice came to B-Squad in February of 2021. When he arrived he has urine soaked so much that his coat is stained brown. He had a significant urinary tract infection and received immediate medical care. After the infection was cleared, Ice's foster noticed he was still leaking urine. Ice has been seen by internal medicine specialiasts, he's been scoped for suspected ectopic ureters, had ultrasounds to check for stones, and we cannot find anything structurally wrong to cause the leaking. His internal medicine specialist has diagnosed him with a weak uretha, meaning the muscle that controls being able to "hold it" does not work in Ice's case.
We have been completing a trial run with Proin to see if we can find a dose that will offer Ice some relief. While we continue this treatment, he uses a belly band in the house and sleeps with whelping pads to help absorb any leaks.
Ice is a VERY athletic dog! He loves to play fetch, run, and JUMP. This guy would be amazing for dock diving or jumping competitions! He's does have a few quirky dalmatian issues stemming from being under socialized as a puppy. He is lacking in confidence when meeting males for the first time. However, if they offer a treat or another dog approaches them for love to show Ice they can be trusted he is good to go! Ice can jump a 6ft privacy fence with a slight approach, so he will need to be monitored with a long lead while in your yard. Seriously, his jumping is IMPRESSIVE! When Ice trusts you, he is the most lovable cuddler you will meet. He's very smart and eager to please.
We are looking for a special foster or adoptive home that can continue to trial the Proin for Ice as well as manage his behavioral needs and keep him safe. Please complete a foster or adoptive application if you think you may be able to provide Ice a safe and loving place to land!
- Patient, dog savy home to continue to work with Ice on confidence and training
- Active family to make sure his activity needs are met
- 6ft Privacy fence or taller.
