NAME: PIE (LOOKING FOR A LONG TERM FOSTER)
BREED: Staffordshire Bull Terrier Cross
DOGS: He doesn't like dogs that enter his space, so he needs to be an only dog in the home.
CATS: Not assessed.
FEEDING: He loves his food and is on a raw diet.
MORE INFORMATION: Pie was abandoned due to ongoing health issues. He is currently seeing a Physio.
So, a little about Pie: Well, number one: he is delicious. I mean, REALLY edible. If you are a bull breed lover, he hits the spot. He is a total dude. Loving, and very typical of his breed in that he is very excited meeting people!
So, what is the hitch? The thing is, I am so worried, you see he has what we would consider is CDRM, a degenerative disease, and it means he needs a special guardian.
He is doubly incontinent, not ALL the time, but sometimes. And it is really going to take a special human and a unique home environment to give him the life he deserves. He doesn't know he is "going" and if it doesn't bother you, it doesn't bother him.
So, what does this mean? Well, he has a strange gait; the nerve endings are damaged, and it means his back legs have a little mind of their own, but this boy isn't going to let it get him down, in fact he can still jump up onto furniture (Whoops... I mean work surfaces, desks, and of course a sofa).
We are dreaming if we could find him an adopter, but I think on balance, the best we could hope for would be a foster.
He would hate to be kept out of family life, so perhaps an only dog with someone with tiled floors or wooden floors would be ideal.
LOCATION: At Glendee Rescue,Hertfordshire.
