Health issues: Chumlee was born with Spina Bifida. He is missing his L7 vertebrae. He has some control over urine but we assist him by expressing his bladder. He has no control over feces. It just comes out when it comes out. He does get around well but walks on his hocks a bit. He has gotten stronger from regular exercise and playing. He will never be your running partner but he loves people immensely.

Meet Chumlee

Chumlee was born with a birth defect and his Greeder couldn’t sell him. They took him to a vet for euthanasia and the vet saved him (YAY). There is no cure for Spina Bifida and no surgery to be performed. He will likely need cleaning up after for the rest of his life. He’s really not hard to take care of though. We use lots of baby wipes and washable peed pads and he’s good to go.
