Breed: French Bulldog
Current Location: Dennison TX
Adoption Date: July 21, 2019
Adopted by: Kristi & Mike Gaskill
It has been such a very long journey to get to this day for Lego to have a home of her very own. So many issues with her bladder, so many tests and procedures and surgery to repair the defect she was born with leaving her incontinent.
We finally overcame it all and the next challenge was finding Lego an only dog home. She could be very dog selective and we knew it would be best to just find her a home where she didn’t have to try and co-exist with another dog.
Today was that day for her to leave, she is being adopted by Kristi & Mike Gaskill from Denison, TX. Kristi and Mike are both in the medical profession and were thoroughly briefed on everything Lego has been through to be ready for adoption and they had no qualms over her needing Proin for life. They were so excited to meet their new girl and she will be the princess of her palace in the Gaskill home as an only dog. There is almost always someone home in their household so this will be an ideal situation for continuing to work on house training that Lego’s foster moms Millie and Mary have begun.
Her new name will be Olive and with this adoption all of the toy group has no officially been adopted.
Happy life cutie pieAbout Lego:
This girl is pretty shy and is wanting to just be a wall flower. She came with a big stained back leg and lots of dry discharge so she’s been scrubbed clean to see how she looks tomorrow. The fear of course is pyometra so she will be kept a close eye on. She was born on 12/23/16
Formerly known as # 302
Welcome to Dog Ranch Rescue Lego!
We finally got a diagnosis for our little LEGO, we’ve been working for months on her leaking bladder, an MRI and a Urogram has finally diagnosed that she does have an ectopic ureter on the right and possibly the left.
This is something that has to be handled at Texas A & M and LEGO will now need to be moved down to foster mom Mary’s house and we will have to wait for an appointment with them and a very expensive procedure to try and correct this.
Poor LEGO has had a long road and unfortunately this is no easy task to get this taken care of.
I want to take a moment to update where we are with Lego and ask the village for your help with looking for her forever home. She was rescued from a mill auction back in March with stained back legs from constant urine dripping for all of her life. It’s taken us quite some time and about 8,000 to finally get to the bottom of the problem. She was operated on after numerous diagnostic tests to an ectopic ureter that needed to be surgically reseated in the correct location to empty into her bladder properly.
She has finished her surgery and has gone back to A & M to look at how everything is going. Foster mom Mary has been taking care of her and gives us this update:
Lego is doing her morning stretches. This girl is shaved in so many places and her belly was shaved again yesterday for an ultrasound. Everything looks as good as it can be with this little malformed girl. Meds were added to see if we can get the last little dribble under control.
We are now seeking applications for Lego, knowing that she may have a tiny bit of leakage in her entire life, she may not, but its no guarantee with a dog malformed like she is. Her one ureter was reseated but the other one is malformed and short but seems to function properly.
Lego is a sweetheart who loves to be held and gets along with most dogs, but….when she doesn’t, she doesn’t. She despises John Merrick at Mary’s house, she didn’t like foster mom Millie’s Frenchie Margeaux, but yet there are others she gets along with just fine.
We are going to seek an only dog home or if you have another dog and live local where Travis or Aaron Stewart could step in for assistance if needed then we will accept those applications as well. There just isn’t any way to know if she will fit in your home with your dogs unless we try and that needs to be done close by. If you don’t have another dog and live on the other side of the country and would like to apply for Lego then please do, knowing she is small enough to fly in cabin under your seat. Lego weighs about 20 pounds.
Applications can be submitted online, if you have an application in place already and would like to be considered for Lego just send Laura an email letting her know at email@example.com
