Hi my name is Ben, I am a very big fluff ball that has a lot of energy. I am cute, or so I was told, I am also a handful. I need someone that has German Shepherd experience to teach me the ropes because I like to do what I want, and the home that I came from didn’t really teach me anything so I took over. I lived outside, the family did not want me inside the house. I do have a bit of a medical issue that’s being monitored by my Guardians at Coastal and the Internists at this vet office I’m at. I am being housed at this awesome vet clinic that has a beautiful play yard. I have perianal stricture, they said I don’t have fistulas yet and they want to make sure that I don’t get to that point. I am currently on a medication called Atopica and I have very strict food diet, I am on Ultra ZD only. You can check Google for more information about perianal stricture, at least that’s what I hear from my Guardians when they talk amongst each other. They said that in the next month we should be able to see how I am progressing. It’s some kind of auto-immune disease (I don’t know what that means), but because this was caught early, they are hoping that all can be managed and we can keep it at bay. Thanks for checking out my profile!
