Dabi2Hi!! My name is Dabi and I am a super special boy. My foster mom’s vet says I am about 6 years old. I had a family but when they found out I have kidney disease they could not deal with my special food, medication and veterinary care. I was surrendered to SLR and they got me all better. I have been neutered and had all of the medical care I need for now. Once you have had your interview, you may contact my foster Mom at amy0274@aol.com.

Dabi3Because I have kidney disease I need a family that can be home with me most all the time. I would love to have a Mom or Dad who is retired or works from home. I drink lots of water so I have to pee pee a lot. My foster mom says that it is good that I am drinking and peeing often. That is a good thing to promote kidney health. I have to eat a  strict prescription diet so I don’t get sick. I love to have cooked sweet potatoes, brussel sprouts and carrots with my special food so I hope to find a mom or dad who would fix this for me sometimes. I take a pill for my kidneys, a renal supplement and a pill for my acid reflux. I have to be fed twice a day and I take my supplement twice a day. I have also been taking Apoquel lately because I get itchy and chew at my feet and my belly. Sometimes I get to feeling yucky and I have to have sub q fluids given to me under the skin. I will need a mom or dad that can do this for me when I need it. My foster mom says its not hard to do it, but I don’t like it so I need a capable handler.

My foster mom says I am a Velcro dog. I absolutely love to be with you and sit with you wherever you are, even the bathroom. I love people but I am super protective of my family, my home and my pack. I might try to bite strangers if they come into my house, but I will warm up to them after I see that they are ok. I love kids, cats and dogs. My foster mom says she thinks I will do best as an only dog or just 1 other fur brother or sister since I require a lot of attention. I absolutely love to wear clothes. I would like a mom or dad that would dress me up in cute sweaters and shirts. I am good for the groomer and to take a bath, but I do not like to be brushed much. Mom says we are working on that every Sunday when I get a bath. Nobody has ever taught me anything so my foster mom has been trying to help me learn basic obedience. I walk on a leash, but I do pull a lot. I love to ride in the car and go places. Someone told me I am a 10 on the cute scale, but I don't want to brag too much about it.

Dabi4It is very important that I have a family that is financially able to take care of my special needs. I CAN NOT have any treats or food that is not on my approved kidney diet. Even a little bite could make me very sick. I am a very very sweet boy and will make a great addition to the right family. Even though I have kidney disease I am still very happy and playful. My foster mom says that I can live a good long life still as long as I am properly cared for. I just had all of my blood work repeated and I am doing really good. As long as I can maintain where I am now I will be just fine.

Would you open your heart and your home to me? My foster mom and dad say they really wish they could keep me but they know that they can’t keep all of us that come into the rescue. It’s really awesome having a family that loves me though!! Maybe you are a person who has some special needs yourself, so you can relate to me and understand that I am just as worthy of love as dogs with no special needs. If you think you might be the right family for me, Dabi, and you are willing to care for me, please fill out an application and ask for Dabi in Georgia.
