Humphrey is a 10 year old male Spanish Water Dog cross Spaniel. He ended up at the municipal pound in the most terrible state. He had such terrible skin, that he didn’t have any hair apart from a few rough patches. The vet said that it was something that he had to live with and that he didn’t need any treatment.

Fast forward a few months to our foster home in the UK and Humphrey was so uncomfortable and constantly scratching that he had to be put onto treatment straight away. He is now on Apoquel and getting better. We think he has an overall approximate 90% growth of hair since we rescued him. He has stopped scratching and is much more comfortable.

He will need to continue with Apoquel or change to another similar medication so please keep this in mind if applying to adopt, as cost must be taken into consideration. He is due to see the vet again soon to undergo further tests to try to get to the root of his skin issues. He may need regular medicated baths going forward.

Humphrey has separation anxiety and likes to be with a human at all times, except at night when he is happy to sleep in a separate room. If left for periods he can be destructive so ideally he needs a home where people are around all of the time and can take him with them if they go out.

He is very food orientated and will counter surf if food is left out. He may also try to snatch food from your hand, hence why we are looking for a home with no young children. He may be able to live with 16+ children who are experienced with dogs. He is interested in cats when out and about so needs a cat free home, just in case!

Humphrey is good with other dogs and has shown no aggression but when off the lead will run up to random dogs and bark at them, not aggressively, but almost as if he wants to take charge and herd them into his pack. His recall is good unless he is busy trying to herd other dogs! He can sometimes bark at dogs when he is on the lead.

Humphrey is a special dog that just needs that perfect home that will take his little quirks into consideration.
