Stumpy is a 9 week old male Airedale Terrier. He came into us as he had an accident whilst with his littermates. His tail was broken and he lost all feeling in it. Unfortunately pups being as pups are his tail then became a tug toy and sadly for Stumpy he has had to have his tail amputated. It had become infected and he felt pretty poorly for a little while. Now it has been removed and he has had his medication he is feeling much much better and is ready to find his forever home.
He will need new owners who are around for a good part of the day, he will be best re homed with another dog as he loves to play and will also gain confidence from being with another well balanced social dog. As with any young pup he will pee and poop in your house, he will without doubt chew something you do not want chewed, he will initially cry at night, maybe even bark for attention. Stumpy will require as much input and time as having a human baby – are you prepared for this, do you have the commitment and time for him? He will need to attend training classes as part of his adoption agreement, this is vital to him and not something that is negotiable, you will be required to sign to state you agree to training classes and written proof will be required.
Many dogs that come into rescue do so because they lack formal training and are problematic because of this. We do not want this to happen to any of the dogs we have in rescue and want owners committed to ensuring that our dogs have the best start to ensure their future. He will need new owners who are around for a good part of the day, he is fine to be re homed with older sensible children 8+, as Stumpy is so young he can be re homed with small furries ect provided positive training is given he will accept and be tolerant of most things.
Stumpy has been vaccinated and micro chipped and is up to date with flea and worming treatments. He will need to be neutered at the correct age, reduce cost neutering is available through our vets on request. hernia repair if carried out at our vets practice. We do not re home our dogs where resident dogs are not neutered unless this is for a recognised medical need (proof of this would be required from your vet). We do not re home puppies with full time workers.
