Meet Mr Scooby, 5yrs old, neutered, fully vaccinated and chipped.
Scooby for the last 3yrs has been a working prison dog but due to some arthritis in his spine and hips he can no longer cope with the heavy work load of constant walking so has taken early retirement.
However since he has been in our care we have seen little evidence of this as Scooby very often does up to 6 miles in two walks over the day with no problem.This is what his foster dad had to say about him.
Scooby is a big loveable softie with people of all ages and loves any amount of fuss you will give him, he is a large male dog who does not like to approached at speed by other dogs especially ones he does not know, however with careful introductions he will be fine. Recently he has been mixing off lead with the local walk group and indeed won the prestigious title of ” Star of the walk” award.
Scooby has lived all his life in a kennel enviroment until recently when he went into foster, he has adapted to living in a home like a duck to water! He loves the company of his new foster sister Amber but I am sure he would also love being the only dog.
He has got good recall and good basics but will need a strong leader as does not suffer fools gladly.
Scooby had the most wonderful retirement but sadly his family have had to let him go over Rainbow Bridge as he was struggling too badly with his back end.
