Hope has had surgery to correct her abnormal plumbing and she is leak-free! She no longer dribbles urine and doesn't need a diaper. She still has to go out quite often and still has the hooded vulva which puts her at greater risk for developing urinary tract infections. In fact, we're dealing with a UTI right now, but the good news is the infection hasn't caused any dribbling. Hopefully allowing her to go through one heat cycle will fix the hooded vulva but only time will tell.
On a personal note, Hope is loving life with her foster brothers, both human and Golden, and she loves playing with toys and chewing on bones. We've discovered that she adores little children and other dogs, but can be a little shy with new humans when she first meets them. Nothing dramatic, but she will sometimes give a tiny growl to let them know she's nervous, but as soon as they start petting her she melts and snuggles with them like a typical golden. She would like her feline foster brother to play with her but he rarely obliges. She takes the hint and backs off. She absolutely loves being outside sniffing around and sometimes digging (which we're trying to stop).
Hope will likely do best in a home with either a fenced yard or with a family who will take her outside for long periods or to dog parks regularly. She should have either a canine companion to play with in her new home or go to a home that can commit to getting her plenty of doggie play time. She would be fine in a home with children or even retired folks as she is not overly high-energy for a puppy. If you want to just veg-out on the couch and watch Netflix, she'll pass out with you. However she will need a family who is still able to get her very regular exercise because she is a puppy and does get a little cabin fever if she doesn't get any.
