Pluto – 11-12 year old male Springer

Pluto is a 11-12 year old male Springer. He was found by a man whilst he was out hiking and was more than happy to have been rescued. He was soaking from the rain, and freezing cold. The man called to Pluto to come over, and he happily did, so he spent the night camping with him whilst we secured a local foster home for him.

Upon Pluto’s first veterinary check it was discovered that he had already been neutered, which was a huge surprise. Unfortunately though Pluto had no microchip and as he was found in the middle of nowhere it was near impossible to determine where he had come from. He also constantly had blood in his poo, so this coupled with his age, may suggest he was no longer wanted.

After weeks of vet trips and investigation, it was confirmed that Pluto had an inflamed colon, likely caused by chronic colitis. This is now managed with cortisol and a gentle diet. We were delighted when he did his first solid poo (yes, this is what excites people in dog rescue). Going forward his new family will need to continue this routine, as he’s much happier and healthier for it.

Pluto’s foster home has many other dogs in their care, and Pluto loves each and every one of them. He is incredibly friendly, gentle, loving and sociable. When he was bought his first bed he had no idea what it was, and chose instead to sleep by the door in a little ball so we think he might have been used to sleeping outside at night. Regardless, Pluto trusts people and loves to make new friends.

Despite all his trips to the vets he loves the staff and always comes through the door wiggling with excitement. He loves being cuddled, kissed and fussed over and he has a very loyal and forgiving nature. Pluto is an old dog and he needs a home that recognise he might not be with them for years and years, but are still in the position to give him all the love he deserves in his retirement home. He can live with other dogs of all shapes and sizes, and could be homed with children aged 8+.

He has not been tested with cats. Pluto would enjoy having his own little garden and would be happiest in a suburban or semi-rural area with some nice surrounding walks to explore. He would love to have company during the day and would enjoy a calm household where he can be showered with love and affection. Pluto is currently in Cyprus and has a clean bill of health and stable colitis diagnosis (veterinary report available). He is ready to travel once he finds his forever home.
