We were asked to take in this happy lad Hogan, who is just 18 months old. Now neutered and vaccinations have been restarted, but he is microchipped and even though a foreign microchip has been registered.
“We threw an emergency life line to Hogan yesterday. He was taken into a vets to be destroyed yesterday at only a year and a half old for his reaction to strangers and his reaction being given direction. Luckily the vets spoke to us and he is now safe with us.
Turns out he is a really nice young lad. Not great hips. He was sent with a bag of his belongings which included an electric shock collar and a prong collar, which may go some way to explaining his reaction to direction.”
Hogan does need some muscle build up on his back end and was thoroughly examined when he went to the vets. His xrays show hip displacia but not enough to warrant surgery at this stage.
No young children and so far has been fine around other large breed dogs and absolutely fine with everyone he has met so far.
This lad would probably be fine in an experienced home being given the right direction and training without the need for ‘tools’!
