Adult Male Shepherd/Australian Shepherd mix

Hi my name is Alexander, but everyone calls me "Alex". I am a handsome 2 yr-old shepherd/ Aussie mix and I weigh about 50 lbs. I was flown to PA in early March 2015 so I could see a special doctor. Something went wrong when I was neutered down south; I lost circulation in my back legs, my toes were infected and had to be removed. In order that my feet would heal, I spent more than a month contained in a crate. In April 2015, weighing about 5 lbs @ 3.5 month of age, I was released from the hospital and moved to my current foster home. I could barely walk or even stand. My foster family provided therapy, lots of love and good food! Today I am one happy pup; I run, jump and play like any other dog. Sadly though, I've been faced with another hurdle for the past year; I have problems with incontinence. Recurring urinary tract infections not only increase the frequency of leakage but put stress on my kidneys. I have been thru many tests, medicines, a clinical trial, and, at one point, surgery was even considered. My dream is to find my forever family and provide them with many years of companionship and love. I am a special needs dog. I will likely be on incontinence medicine for the rest of my life; I need to be monitored regularly for urinary tract infections; and I'm on a special kidney diet. I love to be outside just watching & listening to my surroundings. Haven't met another dog I don't want to play with. Fetch and tug-of-war are my favorite games. Crate-trained and current on vaccinations. Please apply today if you'd like to meet me.
