Hey, everybody!  Meet Truman!  He’s our Life With Dogs Adoptable Dog of the Day.  He’s a two-year-old Lab/American pit bull mix, and a very special guy.  He suffers from Myasthenia Gravis, and as a result also has Megaesophagus.  He’s looking for a good home with a family that will be able to help him out when he needs it and give him lots of love.


If you’d like to know more about Myasthenia Gravis, you can click here to be taken to PetMD.  They also have a great article on Megaesophagus as well, which you can get to by clicking here.


Truman is a neutered two-year-old Labrador retriever/American Pit Bull Terrier mix. He has a very long story that includes near death when he was first found as a stray with Lepto. He is currently in a loving Foster home in Rhode Island.


Young Truman is a very special dog. He is absolutely adorable, the photos don’t do him justice. Everyone who meets Truman quickly falls in love. He is young, and sweet, and affectionate. Truman likes to take a walk but does not require a ton of exercise. He is what we would call medium energy. He has made a few dog friends over the last few months, and tons of human friends!


Truman does have a condition called a rare muscular condition called Myasthenia Gravis and as a result, he also has Megaesophagus. He will need to eat upright for the rest of his life but he has a special chair that props him up for meals. The chair, all of his supplies and lots of support comes with Truman when he finally finds his forever home. We are happy to provide as much support as needed to his adoptive home in helping them learn about MegaE.


Truman knows his basic commands, he is potty trained, crate-trained, and walks very well on a leash.
