Logan was born with Hypospadias
Logan is a 3 month old shih pup who has found himself in rescue. He is just like any other busy happy bouncy pup but he was born with hypospadias, a rare condition which affected the formation of his boy bits and right down to his tail. Fortunately he has no idea that he’s different nor that he’s going to require major surgery to correct this to enable him to live out a full and normal life.
He’s currently in foster and learning quickly from his two doggy companions all about home comforts and essentials like house training, lead walking on his harness, being groomed, sharing and socialisation. When he’s all worn out, he gives the most tender loving cuddles whilst grunting and snuffling his affection and appreciation.
Logan is a natural comic with a great sense of fun who loves people, dogs, snuggles, food, walking, playing with his toys, wrestling with his foster sisters and especially digging in the sand on the beach. He thinks through all new experiences with courage and care and is very mannerly and wise for such a young pup. Well maybe his table manners could do with a little refining cos bolting down his dinner and then stealing anyone else’s gives him terrible hiccups!
The estimate for his specialist surgery is in the region of £3,000 plus £250 consultation fee, medication and the petrol costs of getting him to and from the specialist. This is not a sum many rescues can magically find, so we have set up a crowdfunding page in the hope that with the combined help of many supporters, friends and strangers, Logan can be fixed and live out his happy ever after with a new forever family.
Should we be lucky enough to raise more than is needed for Logan this will be put towards the cost of any other dog in our care that needs specialist help.
Thank you all for reading and donating.
His initial separation anxiety has returned after this trauma and who can blame him so Logan is now looking for his forever home with a young and playful wrestling pal with as much energy as he has. He is not timid in any way and is happiest with bold dogs larger than himself as he has intimidated small shy dogs with his feisty, exuberant ways.
He is a very busy boy and does need a loving, kind but firm owner to remind him of his manners while he goes through adolescence and beyond. They will also need to recognise when he gets overtired and needs a time out and a good sleep. He is incredibly loving and affectionate and sleeps soundly on the bed at night, or in his crate during the day.
We have worked hard to give him a normal puppyhood and he is fully used to being bathed & groomed, people, houses, traffic, parks, all other dogs and beaches. He loves his food, playing with older children, enjoys his toys and behaved nicely with other dogs and two cats who came to stay. He does all his business when outside or uses the puppy pads if caught short indoors. His condition will mean that he will never cock his leg to pee (bonus!) but will need his fur trimmed regularly around his nether regions, but this is usual for the breed.
He’s also been working hard on his stamina by wrestling extra hard with his foster sisters, squeaking his toy bunny and owl, teething on his chewy bone and walking and greeting a huge variety of dogs. This should all serve him well for the next important step in his little life.
His spotted hankie was packed with his food, toys and blankie and with many tears from his band of foster family, friends and admirers he has bravely headed off to another fosterer who lives close to the specialist vet for his appointment on Wednesday morning.
Please help us to raise the funds he will need by and donate anything you can manage. This will be major surgery for such a little puppy, so please keep him close in your thoughts and prayers.
Thank you so much to all of you who have donated so far, we are so very grateful. In such a short life and for such a little guy, he sure has touched many kind hearts.
