My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

 

 



Is this adorable sweet and Sassy diaper baby the dog for you?

She can be sassy with other dogs but she really just wants to be a sweet cuddly girl with her favorite humans. Why do we call her a diaper baby, you ask? Well, she has some minor issues with her hind quarters, possibly due to a subarachnoid diverticulum cyst on her spinal cord (a congenital defect that is likely to be stable over the remainder of her life). It seems that the nerve impulses from her hind quarters are blocked or delayed getting back to her brain so she drags her back legs a bit and she unfortunately has little bowel and bladder control, hence the “diaper baby” endearment. The good news is that she does not let it stop or slow her down and she is very tolerant of wearing her diapers. She has full command of her hind legs but does not always seem to know exactly where they are at any given moment. When she is running at full tilt boogie (zoomies level 10) she tends to do power slides around corners and will occasionally trip and momentarily loose traction, but she quickly gets back up to full Husky speed.

She would be great as an only dog for someone who is willing to take on a sweet diaper baby. She does exhibit some occasional resource guarding behaviors so an experienced owner would be recommended for a multi dog home. She also tends to be the play police when her foster dog siblings are trying to play. Both behaviors are relatively minor and manageable by an experienced owner.

If you will consider giving this sweet (and a bit sassy) diaper baby a place in your home, she will steal your heart.
