Meko is a Black Lab and Newfoundland mix is now about 5 months old. The vet thought he would max out at about 60 pounds or so tops. He had sores on his back and butt from fleas and straight bleach had been poured on him so he had very very bad burns on his body and he was in terrible shape. He was really dehydrated and malnourished and had worms but he is doing to well now. He is recovering and he is such a happy puppy and doesn't seem to be in any pain. His burns have healed nicely but his problem is he is incontinent of stool and urine and he has difficulty with his back legs....his spine stopped growing by his rump so he just has a little stump tail and sometimes he can walk but most of the time he hops sometimes he drags his legs but despite this he is a very happy puppy he plays ALOT and is just a little lover and he is so sweet! He has to wear a diaper probably for the rest of his life...he has to have a bath first thing every morning, then his bladder must be expressed about 5 times a day otherwise he will get a bladder infection....he has diaper changes frequently because he has loose stools. Every time you change his diaper you have to put diaper rash stuff on his bum because he doesn't have any hair down there due to the burns. He has just the sweetest personality and really would be a great companian for the right person.
*Meko is part of the Ag Litter

The petfinder.com system requires that we choose a predominant breed or breed mix for our dogs. Visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable so for most of the dogs we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label.
Thank you for looking through our list of animals needing forever homes. We appreciate you stopping by.
