Mrs. Meowerson:  I don’t have any ideas but you’re amazing for volunteering and thinking about this little sweetie.

Fingers crossed she gets a good home, I can’t understand why someone would abandon their pet when she needs them most:-(

Mrs. Meowerson:  Shame on her owners if they’re giving her up just because she has some potty problems!! My heart is breaking for this poor baby 🙁 She looks so sweet! It’s so nice of you to want to take her in and give her a loving home! 

Are you or your DH able to run home at all during the day (like on a lunchbreak) to check on her or take her out? Or perhaps have a friend or relative that could stop by throughout the day? I wish I could take her! I’m in Virginia too, but we have four fur babies and I’m pretty sure my family will kill me if I come home with another one. I’m sending good vibes her way (and yours too!) and will ask around to see if someone I know could foster or adopt her.

If it’s simple spay incontinence  the Proin will stop it, as the PP said.  She should also be checked for a bladder infection.

I hope you can take her.  Senior dogs are precious.

Oh she’s so cute! How could you abandon a dog after spending almost 2 decades with her?? People are the worst sometimes.

Mrs. Meowerson:  My girl dog also took Proin for leakage when she was younger. So when they sleep their sphincter relaxes and opens and there’s a small puddle under them. Strangely she didn’t need it later.

But when she did become a little old lady she just couldn’t hold it very long all the time. No diapers, I couldn’t get those to stay on (with another old dog I adopted). I just did a lot of clean up. I’d take her and just see what it is. If it’s just little old lady tiny bladder maybe you could contain her in a room with a floor that’s easy to clean up. I love the old ones, too. I follow Old Dog Senior Sanctuary on FB!
