Rogan - neutered male, Boston Terrier/English Bulldog cross, birthday November 23, 2019, Intake # 200020.
Location: Foster Care
Rogan is the longest adoptable resident with Bandaged Paws! He is a big dog in a small body and is sweet, sassy and snuggly! He loves to run with the big dogs and be the number one in your life. What is holding back this cute face from finding a forever home? Well, Rogan suffered a terrible trauma at 6 weeks old where his tail was removed by another dog. This has left him with zero control of his bowel and bladder (he will never be housebroken!) but this energetic little man has so much personality that makes up for the extra cleaning! Rogan does have some specific requirements to ensure he is well cared for:
• He requires someone who can change his diaper approx. every 4 hours during the day but he is fine for 7-8 hours overnight. It is important to change the diaper frequently as he will get uncomfortable rashes from a soggy diaper, just like any human in diapers.
• His diaper is mainly for urine. Typically we cut holes in the diapers for his bum to hang out or use diapers as belly bands to contain urine only, otherwise the diaper rubs against his anus causing chafing and inflammation. Full diapers covering the bum can be used on occasion, but from what we have seen so far it shouldn’t be an expectation that a full diaper could be for everyday use.
• He can still fit into human diapers which is much easier on the wallet! He goes through about 5-7 diapers a day and is currently wearing size 6. Given his size now and age, there is a good chance he will fit this size for life.
• He does require some assistance pooping most days. Since he does not have the urge to push due to the nerve damage, sometimes feces hang out slightly or it is simply too large to pass without assistance. This involves massaging the fecal matter out of his rectum. It is a fairly easy task overall and can be easily shown to his new people!
• He has a sensitive stomach and currently eats gastrointestinal food only. He will however, try to eat anything and is a bit of a scavenger! This will be really important info for when he is around children as there is a high chance he would steal food right from their hand. If he does get into food that is not his gastro food, he will get diarrhea. Diarrhea is problematic for Rogan since he cannot control his bowels
Now some of his normal dog basics!
Rogan is currently 33 lbs. He has the Boston Terrier size but the English Bulldog bulk. He loves other dogs but lacks manners when meeting them – will run up and lick their teeth or bark to nip at them - neither of which are appreciated by all dogs. He loves to wrestle and play chase. After living with other dogs for so long, he would be happiest in a home with other dogs to play with! He does well with cats, sometimes too playful for the cat’s liking though! Rogan has decided he isn’t much into learning tricks, however he is kennel trained, knows to sit and walks nicely on leash. When he plays too much, he goes into overdrive and gets nippy. He is similar to an over tired toddler who throws a fit. Rogan sleeps 100% through the night in his kennel, sometimes even putting himself to bed. He also sleeps frequently during the day too. Plays hard, naps harder. He has the world's best under bite that gives him an adorable pouty lip with reversed bucked teeth on the bottom! Rogan would be great for someone who was home with him throughout the day or could bring him to work, but could also adjust to a normal work schedule with someone that was able to come home at lunch to change his diaper.
Rogan is a very special case requiring a lot of extra care and will likely be around for 10-15 more years so be sure to consider how that fits in with your life long term. That said, Rogan is a little spitfire who brings lots of laughs and keeps you on your toes with all his hilarious antics. He’s a wonderful boy and we have no doubt there is a wonderful family out there who is able to meet his needs in return for unconditional love! .
