Embo is an 18 month old male Turkish Cross-Breed who is being fostered in Crewe, Cheshire. He is a big lovable dog who is always so happy to see people and he has such a zest for life. Embo arrived from Turkey with an amputated back leg and being very seriously ill.
He was found to be suffering the effects from an infected tick bite which left him fighting for his life. He has now had full treatment for this and is on the road to recovery. Throughout all his treatment he was such a gentle soul that the vets, vet nurses and anyone that met him totally fell in love with his character. Embo loves humans and is always so pleased to see people. He will paw you for attention and loves getting a head stroke.
Embo is a big and long-legged dog, and can be quite clumsy sometimes on his three legs so a home with older children or adults only would suit him as he doesn’t realise his own size sometimes. Embo lives with multiple dogs in his foster home and meets lots of dogs when on walks – he is very sociable and will interact with any dog he sees. He can sometimes bark when dogs enter his house, but this soon stops when he meets them. Embo would benefit from another dog to play with and interact with, however he would also happily be an only dog if there was lots of human interaction. Embo lives with a cat currently and two parrots and is fine with them.
Embo is house trained, he currently sleeps downstairs in the kitchen behind a babygate and is very happy to do that. Embo has been crate trained and will happily go in one, but currently isn’t using one in his foster home. Embo is not destructive but is very puppy like so will steal socks if given the opportunity and has taken post from the floor so will need a home that can be patient while he settles in and relives his puppy hood. Embo does play with toys and loves squeaky toys especially. Embo is eating well and is very food orientated. As he is still putting on weight he is getting three meals a day in his foster home which is suiting him but he is not food aggressive at all. Potential adopters will have to work with Embo on his enthusiasm for food as he gets very excited when he sees his food bowl. Embo is fine to be left for short periods, he has been left in his foster home with no issues- he does sing for a few minutes when you leave but this isn’t persistent and soon stops.
Embo loves walks and being outdoors. He will jump into any vehicle to go out and loves life! He runs into the vets to see them all and as he has spent a lot of time there over the last couple of months he has quickly worked out if you wag your tail at reception you get treats from them so he loves going there! Embo would suit a home experienced with large breeds such as German Shepherds as he has many traits of this breed – he can be clumsy with his long legs and thumpy tail so a home that will work with him to settle and adapt to suit him. A home that is active and will take him exploring new places – Embo is definitely not a dog that needs to be a house dog due to his missing leg – he loves life and deserves to experience as much as possible after all he has been through. Embo loves to run and is great off lead, but he needs a home that will understand that a change may unsettle him initially so he will need patience and understanding to allow him to adjust to a different home.
Embo is a lovable big idiot who makes everyone smile and laugh when they are around him, so he needs a home that will embrace his lovable ways and allow him to be his goofy but gentle self and continue to teach him that socks don’t need to be hidden in his bed, or that post doesn’t need to be read by him first! Whoever adopts Embo will truly get the most amazing dog who just makes you laugh everyday with his comical nature and he will make the most rewarding companion
Embo is neutered, chipped, vaccinated and up to date with his flea and worming treatment. Potential adopters will be expected to travel to meet him in his foster home in Crewe, Cheshire.
