17 months old
The very gorgeous Dave came into LiN foster 2 months ago and is now looking for his forever home.
A big strong boy, Dave will need someone physically strong enough to walk him as he does pull, although this is improving. He is a cheeky young boy who likes to get into mischief, but will listen when told “no”. He is clean in the house, and doesnt chew, although he does like to greet you with a shoe or two!
He is friendly with everyone he meets, but would be too bouncy with smaller children, so dog savvy children, 8yrs plus only please. He is in foster with 2 other dogs and gets on great with them , but doesnt know his boundaries yet and sometimes the rough and tumble play can go too far! Due to joint problems, it would be best for him to be the only dog in the house.
And that leads us on to Dave’s hips. Dave unfortunately suffers from hip dysplasia in both hips, one being worse than the other. This is currently controlled with Cartrophen injections (recently reduced to 6 weekly) and daily metacam (dose reducing gradually). Along with controlled exercise. He enjoys 3-4 20-30 minutes walk a day, and although ball throwing is not allowed, he loves a gentle trot off lead around the local fields. He also loves water and can’t resist a dip in the stream.Dave would fit in well with a family where someone is home most of the time (he loves his human cuddles) and a family that do not want to walk miles and miles with their four legged friend! Dave is currently in the Midlands
