Sooty is an adult Shih Tzu, he arrived into the care of the Algernon Trust recently. When he arrived, his fur was so badly matted he had to have the mats cut out under sedation and even had a harness matted into his fur. He has some behavioural issues so is staying in an experienced foster home where he is receiving training to prepare him for a forever home. He is making significant progress and we’re very grateful to Sooty’s fosterer as we’re sure Sooty is! His new home will need to have the patience to continue to work with Sooty.
