Pooch - Needed A Specialist Due to A Congenital Disorder

He was found as a stray in Newark in early March and has been waiting for quite awhile to share his heart with a loving family. He has been at the Associated Humane Societies in Newark for several weeks in the hope of finding a new start in life. Pooch is only about 8 months of age with tons of puppy energy and lots of love to give.

When Pooch was scheduled for neutering, Dr. Adriana Hordynsky of the Animal Hospital in Linden started on what was to be a standard routine surgery ... When Dr. Hordynsky discovered there was more to the standard procedure, Pooch is a hermaphrodite, a congenital disorder, and was sent to a specialist at Red Bank Veterinary Hospital. According to our vet, Dr. Emily Marion at the AHS Tinton Falls shelter, Pooch was given "reassignment" surgery. A non-working penis was removed & the testicles were castrated. Her vagina was made larger so that urination would be easier. Due to the abnormal urethra and vagina, Pooch is ore likely to develop urinary tract infections in the future. Other than that, Pooch is an adorable dog who displays good manners at the food bowl & with treats.

It was an interesting case but Pooch is still homeless and waiting for "a new leash on life". Your donations will help us with the Res-Q Fund and our efforts in finding a lifelong home for a loving pup. For more information, call AHS at 732-922-0100 or e-mail us regarding File 19009. The Society is open 7 days a week for your convenience - from noon until 4:30 p.m.
