Sandy is a lovely 11 year old male Labrador who came into Oldies Club care after his owner died. Sandy is in an Oldies Club foster home in Tipton, West Midlands, waiting for someone to offer him a permanent home. Sandy is happy to be left alone for a few hours while you go out. He loves the company of people though, so a home with full-time workers wouldn’t be fair on Sandy.
Sandy was always an only dog, but with careful introduction he could live with another laid back dog. He wouldn’t like to be with an ‘in-your-face’, boisterous type of dog. Sandy doesn’t like cats. Sandy loves children but he’s a big strong dog and could accidentally knock a toddler over. He could be rehomed to live with children aged 5+.
Sandy is good on walks. He pulls a little when he notices something of interest to investigate, but not too bad. His foster carer hasn’t tried his recall yet, but as his previous owner walked Sandy on an extending lead, his foster carer suspects it won’t be great. He would fit in most homes, as long as he’s included in what’s going on. He lived for 12 years as a one man dog, but has settled just as happily in his foster carer’s household.
Sandy is neutered, vaccinated and microchipped, and has been wormed and flea treated. Sandy has been checked over by the vet, and has no serious health concerns. He does have a wart on his head, which is very noticeable because of its location, but is nothing to worry about. It could be removed, but this isn’t currently necessary.
