Lab / Black and Tan Coonhound

[Read About Natural Incontinence Care] My wife and I have a 9 �%BD year old, 65+ pound, Yellow Lab/Coonhound mix named Mylow. He was a vigorous 2 year old when we got him from a rescue. A little over 4 years ago he ruptured a disc chasing an animal in the backyard and paralyzed his rear legs. He was diagnosed with intervertebral disc disease. After surgery and 6 months of rehab his right rear leg returned to normal, but not the left. For about 2 years he was able to walk pretty well with a bit of a limp, although he often continued to get around by dragging. About 2 years ago his left rear leg slowly became paralyzed again. We got him a K-9 cart, which is great for walking him on a leash, but he rarely walks anymore on his own. His primary mode of getting around is dragging, which tears up his left foot and leg. We re-bandage him every few days, as necessary. He was perfectly housebroken when we got him from the rescue, but since the injury he has accidents. We have not had to express his bladder for a many of years. My wife and I are 65 and both work full time. After 4+ years we have become exhausted taking care of Mylow and are very restricted in our activities because he can't be left alone for long periods of time, has difficulty getting up and down stairs and needs specialized care. It's gotten to the point where it's him or us. That said, Mylow is an endearing dog. He loves to be comforted and has a happy attitude. In his mind he is the same dog he always was and is full of life. He will drag himself full speed, barking and snorting, across the backyard chasing a fox or groundhog. He loves swimming after tennis balls at the dog beach. We will not give him to anyone unless we are certain they will take good care him.
