Andrew is a Pointer Cross of around four to five years old. Andrew is fostered in Gt Yarmouth (FR001). Andrew is a charming boy who wins hearts and influences people wherever he goes. He arrived into our care recently with a leg that had clearly been broken and bent backwards for quite some time, probably years. Added to this Andrew is incredibly hand shy and acts like he has been beaten by humans. He is desperately conflicted between wanting to be loved and have contact from humans and his ingrained expectation to be abused by them. When you speak to him softly and call him to you his stumpy tail will wag furiously and he will approach you with his head bowed. It’s actually heartbreaking, but in time he will overcome his fears and the wagging tail will be accompanied by a head held high.
Andrew gets on well with female dogs but doesn’t always get on with males, I guess shelter life in Romania was not easy on a dog with a clear disability and he’s used to having to fight his corner. His useless leg has now been surgically removed by a UK vet and he’s doing incredibly well. Andrew has been walking on three legs for a long time so the loss of the dead hanging limb is just a boost to his mobility.
Andrew would like a quietish home where he can at last relax and take life easy. He enjoys short walks and I’m sure will appreciate longer walks as his confidence in life grows.
