Dougal is a 4 year old male German Wire-Haired Pointer. Dougal appeared outside a campsite and people staying there were worried he was going to get run over. The person running the campsite appealed for help and we offered. Dougal is now in a foster home with 3 other dogs and he’s doing well. He’s super cuddly, very active, playful with other dogs and gets on fine with males and females. He’s also incredibly handsome.
We X-rayed him when he first arrived since he had moments of being in pain which turned out to be due to a bladder infection now treated. But as you can see the poor lad has bits of shot in his head. He had also had his microchip removed. Thankfully it was stitched properly and so seems to have been done by a vet (not always the case). The poor lad would now like a home to call his own.
Update from his foster home: they’ve seen a few cats on walks and he ignores them completely. His foster Mum took him right up to them and he wasn’t interested at all. He is scared of traffic noises and if a bus goes by he freezes completely. He will have been kept tied up or in a kennel in a rural area until now and traffic is all new to him.
