May I introduce Prince who is coming up 11 years. He is neutered and microchipped.
Prince was originally assessed because his owners were threatened with eviction if he was not gone. He was living in a flat, getting no exercise and had a balcony for a toilet! His nails were overgrown and he appeared very aggressive. We decided he needed a chance after 2 other rescues had assessed him and then turned their backs on him!
His owner’s only comment when he left was, who is going to guard me know? Not that she got off the sofa! The children, grown up, wrestled him out of the flat using fire guards to protect themselves. No chance of being able to muzzle him.
Prince arrived at Auntie Linda’s and happily came out of the car. Within a few hours he was happily settling in the conservatory. It took a long time the next day to get a muzzle on him but a trip to the vets sorted out his overgrown nails and discovered cysts all around his neck and shoulder area which had obviously been causing immense pain. So off they came as well!
Prince has been fine with all the other dogs he has met and now has a new lease of life. He still struggles with having a collar on as physiologically he still expects pain. He can also be a bit of a grump but having been through what he has, who can blame him!
This lad just needs a retirement home that maybe has their own land he can enjoy along with other dogs.
This poor old lad has gone to Rainbow Bridge. His body started to give up on him. Fortunately it was very quick and at least he knew what life was like to be loved and be able to run around a field at the end.
