    Default New owner from KY

    Hi everyone! We just adopted our first EB 2 months ago and we are in love ! Chica is 17 months old and is completely incontinent. The vet thinks she may have spinabifida causing the incontinence, but there's nothing they can do to correct the issue, not even surgery. So she's just our special needs baby. We had always wanted an EB but stumbled upon Chica by accident really. When we saw the horrible condition she was in (demodectic mange, flea infestation, severely under weight, living outdoors with no a/c, covered in feces) we had to rescue her. Two months later she is finally flea free, the mange is almost gone, and we can no longer see her ribs. She has stolen all of our hearts and my kids say that they think Daddy may love Chica more than me . We're still figuring out the best way to manage her incontinence because keeping a diaper on a stubborn bully 24/7 is a challenge. But our latest diaper cover design seems to work so wish us luck! We've finally found a food that seems to work for her and has helped firm up her , Blue Buffalo Wilderness Chicken. This site has been wonderful so far and I've been able to find a lot of great info, like why her chin has started breaking out. Buying a stainless steel bowl today! If anyone has any experience with bowel incontinence or suggestions please let me know

    Bless you for taking in a special needs bully. So many times they are just tossed aside. It takes someone special to do what you are doing. We are PROUD to have you join us her at EBN. We'd love to see pix of her if you have some.

    Welcome and you are certainly a extra special person for rescuing Chica. Don't know much about Chicas incontinence issues but just hang on as there must be someone on the forum who can give input. Can't wait to see this beautiful bully girl. Maybe a before and after picture so we can see how much "love" can make a difference with our bully babies.

    Welcome to you and Chica. I have an almost 2 yr old that SB. We can learn together. If you have any questions fire away. I am learning through trial and error how to keep the diapers on. Message me if you have any questions.

    Bless you for taking her on.

    You watch the news and you think....has all humankind gone straight to the crapheap? And then, someone like you comes along, @UKgirl1 (Fact is, we have a lot of angels around here in EBN so you are in good company among your peers!)

    Bless you a thousand times for taking that sweet little face and skinny little body into your home. She looks fantastic! That peaceful, snoozy little face in the last picture tells the story of a dog who = thanks to you and your family = doesn't have a worry in the world anymore.

    Now, if I could just have five minutes alone with her former owners..... Clearly, they are in need of some vigilante justice.
