there's a little rescue bulldog puppy about four hours from me that was born without feeling in his hind end. he can't control his pottying because he doesn't even know when he's going. he's only 6 months old and has already been in three families. all the families thought they could fix him, but now that it's become apparent that he's not "fixable" his current family can't care for him. i'm not even looking for a puppy until february and when that time comes my husband really wants a lab....but this little guy's story really caught me for some reason. i have some questions into the rescue group and as far as i've researched, he'd be very susceptible to bladder infections, skin infections, and would need frequent baths. much like a baby, but for ten years instead of 2. plus the cost of vet visits and of course diapers. i haven't even seen any pet diapers that are capable of catching feces. anyway. i don't really know where i'm going with this. i just wanted to hear some other's experiences (average cost, average care, average day, what kind of diapers to even use, etc) so my husband might be more open to it, or so that i can realize it's not the dog for me, or maybe just to put his story out there so someone with the right heart could see it.
