Captain Wink

American Pit Bull Terrier

1 year, 11 months
Large  |  Male

Binghamton, NY

 

We have a special boy in search of a new foster...or better yet, an adopter. Captain Wink will be celebrating his first birthday on February 2nd and for such a little guy (38 pounds) there is a lot to know about Captain!
Captain has a relatively rare skin condition called non epidermolytic ichthyosis. It causes flaky skin, and hair loss. The treatment consists of an oral anti-fungal medication that he takes daily, and medicated baths 2 to 3 times per week.
Fortunately, he is cooperative with his baths, and is mostly interested in trying to drink the water!
Captain takes oral thyroid medication twice daily for his low thyroid levels.
He also has low vision; one of his eyes did not develop properly.
Captain eats a limited-ingredient dog food twice daily. He gets fish oil on his food as a supplement, as well as a vitamin/mineral supplement with his food.
Because of his thyroid condition, Captain drinks ALOT and of course has to go potty frequently.
Since baths are a big part of Captain's life, someone with a good grooming/bathing set up would be idea, as well as someone who is home most of the time or able to give him access to go potty often.
Captain is a sweet and gentle boy. He is good with people and other dogs, but because his skin is fragile, he should not live with high-energy dogs who enjoy wrestling or other rough play.
As you can see, Captain Wink is still a baby, who has given a rough deal in life with his medical conditions, but he is truly worth the time and effort to keep him happy. He needs a special, dedicated FOSTER or FOREVER home
