Tell me I’m a good boy, and I’ll be yours forever!

Attention! I’m Sergeant, and I’m a 3-year-old fixed Labrador Retriever Mix, weighing 30 pounds. I was rescued from the streets of Tijuana where it is believed that I was either abused or hit by a car.  Whatever the cause, I suffered severe trauma to my spine, which has left me fully incontinent (with both urine and feces).  As a result, I must be diapered at all times when I’m indoors or when I’m inside a car.  The good news is, I’m fully mobile (and can walk very well on a leash, I might add) and am in no pain from this injury. My foster mom suggests that this military boy should be uniformed with suspenders to prevent the diapers from slipping. She has a collection of outfits to pass along to my adopter too.

But, let’s get to a little bit about me! I’m a sweet and gentle boy who is incredibly loving with people and children.  More than anything in the world, I want to be petted, loved on, and told that I’m a good boy.  My favorite activities include chasing fast-moving creatures, like lizards and squirrels, and going on car rides.  But most of all, I adore my squeaky toys! I can play with them for hours and just one squeak can send me from a deep slumber to instantly alert.  One thing that I am working on, though, is my severe separation anxiety, as well as my general anxiety.  Due to my rough past, I never want to be alone, and I don’t handle being left behind very well.  I can also be a bit apprehensive and fearful.  However, I think with the right training and loving family, I’ll be able to make a lot of progress in this department!

My ideal home would be somewhere with a large yard – even a farm – where I could play and sniff around undiapered most of the day.  I’d also prefer to have company the majority of the time, so a work-from-home situation would be ideal.  I need to be your one and only doggie but do well sharing a home with cats!  All in all, though, I’m a lovable boy who is just looking for a furever family who I can love with all my heart.    

My adoption fee is $200 and that includes spaying/neutering, shots, and microchip. If you want to take me home, please fill out the form on the website here: https://theanimalpad.org/adoption-application/
