Ella's Info...

Ella's Story...
Ella is 4 years old and 13 pounds. She has been diagnosed with patellar luxation and hormone-controlled urinary incontinence (we are currently treating with Proin and DES). Her previous guardian indicated a history of intermittently growling at strangers (mostly men). The previous guardian reported that outside these instances she was generally successful with adults and children. She can be housed successfully with other small dogs, but we have not attempted to introduce her to any large breeds.

Ella’s urinary incontinence is well controlled with medication. She takes Proin twice daily and DES once weekly. Our veterinarian scored Ella’s Medial Patellar Luxations as a 1/4 on her right leg and a 2/4 on her left leg.

Ella’s medical issues are pretty minor in the scheme of things. We don’t typically recommend surgery for luxating patellas in small dogs where the condition isn’t causing a problem. Our consulting orthopedic practice also doesn’t recommend surgery. We’ve had adopters take a new pet to the vet and luxation was diagnosed and surgery recommended for a completely non-painful, intermittent condition. I can’t think of a case in the last MANY years of a small dog that surgery was performed on an adoption dog.

Her urinary incontinence is controlled and she may even be able to be weaned off all meds over time – consider time in many months to years. The meds are CHEAP!! We had her DES filled since it wasn’t sent with her at surrender. A year’s supply for $30 --- we had Monument Pharmacy compound it. I just priced the Proin thru our vet clinic and 60 tablets is $19.50 – this will last 2 months. There would also be routine exam charges +/- tax applied.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ella, a Castle Rock Miniature Pinscher dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Miniature Pinscher for sale in Castle Rock, or seeking a Miniature Pinscher dog from a breeder in Castle Rock.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Castle Rock already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Castle Rock breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Miniature Pinscher breeders who help with Miniature Pinscher rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Castle Rock paves the way for another one to be saved.
