Somewhere in Kentucky, in the middle of nowhere, in a town no one has ever heard of, Scout lived her life outside in a kennel for almost 4 years until she was “sold” because she wasn’t able to breed. She came to Doberman Underground, had her vetting, and everything seemed normal…until it wasn’t. Scout started leaving her foster mom lakes of urine. Not rivers, not streams…LAKES! And so the work up began. After several thousand dollars, it was determined that Scout has an issue called Diabetes Insipidus or Syndrome of Inappropriate Antidiuretic Hormone. This has absolutely nothing to do with blood sugar. Scout cannot concentrate her urine like most other dogs can. This condition can also occur in humans. Scout gets twice daily injections of a hormone called Desmopressin. Her foster mom would like to tell you it’s smooth sailing and that there are no more lakes of urine, but some days when she gets home from work or wakes up in the morning, there is still Lake Scouty. But she cheerfully states that is nothing a mop and Odoban won’t fix! Scout is very loving and normal in every other way. She has several nicknames, like Scouty Pouty Pants and Scouty Pouty Fresh n Fouty. We affectionately say it’s a good thing Scout is pretty because she isn’t all that smart. But she is most certainly worth all the work. Just ask her foster mom, who loves her so much!
