Posted Breed: Shepherd / Mixed. Alice is a Shepherd Mix, her estimated date of birth is 12/1/11 and she weighs 45 lbs. She is up to date on all of her shots and she is fixed. Alice is a very sweet girl. She is good with people and with other dogs, very happy and friendly. We first took Alice in after she was hit by a car which fractured her pelvis and caused a condition known as megacolon. Megacolon is a state of permanently increased diameter of the large bowel. This change in intestinal structure leads to abnormal function, including reduced colonic motility and chronic constipation. Fecal retention in Alice's colon causes dilation of the colon and can somewhat impair her ability to poop. We have been able to get her much better health-wise and with medication and care Alice should be able to lead a healthy long life. She currently receives a daily stool softener and Cisapride, a medication that increases the motility in the upper gastrointestinal tract. Currently Alice is not house broken and does not have normal stools. They are often watery and grey and come out a little bit at a time. We do not have a central location to see our dogs. Meeting any dog is by appointment ONLY currently. Appointments can be set up to meet any dog in San Diego. Currently we are unable to do any out-of-state adoptions.
