UPDATE 6/30/20 - This sweet boy came to us in pretty bad shape after being found on the streets. We took him to the vet where they diagnosed him with hypothyroidism and put him on medication which will be required for the rest of his life. Since being on the medication he has grown all the hair back - if you saw the before pics he had very little hair on his back. In addition, we have had his perineal hernias repaired - now this baby boy no longer has difficulty going to the bathroom. He is fairly well house trained - he has never pooped in the house but if left alone he sometimes has accidents. he is ready to go to his new family. He loves to be with his person and will follow you wherever you go. He prefers you not to leave him for very long and will show you how glad he is to see you return by showering you with kisses. All and all this little house elf is almost perfect! Do you have his perfect home?

*****************************************************************************This boy was found in Forest West Subdivision.  Finders named him Dobby.  It was quickly apparent that this dog had a major digestive issue.  He had a bulging 'PERINEAL HERNIA' He had no appetite, and ate only sparsely.  Finders took him to a local vet where they were presented with a $500+ estimate to diagnose (not TREAT.... JUST DIAGNOSE) this sweet pup.  Finders decided that was not an expense they were willing to absorb.  We offered to help.  Dobby was surrendered to us and we immediately had xrays done and sent to our surgical specialist at Triangle Veterinary in Conroe, TX  Based on initial exam, preliminary findings, this boy, based on body condition, was likely a 'Cushinoid'  meaning suffering with a condition known as 'Cushing's Disease'  The only way to be sure it to run labs.  A lab test known as ACTH STIM Test was done and the results are...

Repairing the hernia without addressing the underlying CAUSE is a waste of time, money and effort, as the cause must be treated before the result can be effectively treated.
