Born in February 2014, Tid Bit is making up for lost time of a difficult beginning in life. Everything he does is done at warp 5 speed with enthusiasm and great happiness. He loves other dogs and will go share a bed with another or let another come share his bed. When he decides you need to be loved, he will race up your body, put each of his front paws on each of your shoulders and his face is ON yours with great love and passion!
Tid Bit has malformed kidneys so he drinks a lot and pees a lot. In order to help his kidneys NOT work too hard, he has to be on a low protein dies for the rest of his life (we don’t know how long that will be). The more regular you are about getting him outside the better he is at being housetrained. It took us lots of vet visits and tests at various specialty clinics to get the correct diagnosis, but he is a happy and healthy dog on a very low protein diet designed for his issues. A volunteer cooks a custom-designed, balanced diet for him with all the nutrition he requires with this kidney issue. We have also found a raw diet with low protein non mainstream protein that he loves (it is a of course more expensive).
He would love his own home but he is happy with his foster dad and his two housemates. He would like an adventurous home to go on hikes and walks and car rides but he is happy and loved. While we don’t know how long he has to enjoy his foster family, we do know it will shorten his life with these kidney issues. We will test him and continue to enjoy him while we have him and continue to search for a forever home that will love him and do all the extra things that need to be done to keep him happy and healthy.
Tid Bit is neutered, up to date on shots and is quite the happy boy and a joy to be around. If you would like Tid Bit to join your family, please go to www.minpinhaven.com and submit the Adoption Application which can be found under Online Forms.
