Viking is a older 7 to 8 year old German Shepherd male who arrived in to our care via the pound, now when some dogs arrive you just can’t help but leak a little tear and feel pure hate to humans for what they have done to a beautiful defenseless creature and Viking was one such lad. He arrived skin and bone, no fat on him at all, bite wounds all over his body and he looked so sad and lost. Immediately he was rushed to the vets and had a full examination, it is believed he has been used as a bait dog.
Viking is now on medication and slowly some of his wounds are beginning to heal, others are taking longer, this lad though has blossomed in character, he is happy and so trusting and loving to people the one’s who have done so much damage to him. Sadly he also suffers Hip Dysplasia and we know with these health issues he is going to be very hard to rehome. He is such a placid boy, loving and so deserves a forever home where he can just be spoilt and have all his needs tendered to.
We wonder if there is an angel out there who can offer this boy a loving home, where he can feel safe and not have to worry about ever being hurt again. Viking could live with another medium to large sized dog and older children. He has not been tested with cats.
