We were asked to take Valcoux in as an emergency. This is what we were told:
“Handover GSD, called Valcoux, French name and French chip, not sure how you spell it, dog is around 7 years old, male entire, they have had him 2 weeks. He has been bathed, clipped, deflead and wormed, don’t know if he is up to date with vacs. They can’t keep him because he is too bouncy and boisterous, can get over the fence, and they have 2 nine week old pups which he seems very interested in. He is good with children from 5 years up, but not sure about little ones, lives with a 5 and 7 yr old. He was kept outside in his previous home, doesn’t seem to have had any socialising or training from what I can make out, he is just a loony bouncy overgrown puppy. He is chained in a very muddy, cluttered small garden, constantly getting the chain caught on things and wrapped around his legs, only has a plastic bottle to play with, which he absolutely loved, he did know sit and owner says he knows paw. They have not walked him near other dogs so don’t know what he’s like, don’t know about cats either, pulls a bit on the lead. Body Condition is a little lean, and apart from being plastered in mud his coat is in good condition. I feel so sorry for this poor boy, he is such a gorgeous handsome dog with so much potential, just in totally the wrong home, and looks like he’s been passed from pillar to post, needs a charity who knows what they are doing to make him into the stunning wonderful dog he is waiting to be.”
Now safely in our kennels where he has been neutered, this lad just needs an experienced home to give him the training and socialisation he has so badly missed out on. He does not like other dogs so needs to be the only dog in the home please but loves people.This handsome lad has been shipped from pillar to post in his short life and so deserves a home to call his own.
Can you give him the home he deserves?
The gorgeous Valcoux has passed over Rainbow Bridge after a very short and sudden illness.
