Harry is just a lovely, flopsy, gambolling canine who wants to be everybody’s friend. He has mixed with a range of dogs and enjoys their company, but if there is any sense of friction he runs for the hills (he is a lover, not a fighter). He has seen cats, birds and dairy cows with no reaction – just shows mild interest.
Sadly Harry has not had a good start to life. He had obvious problems with one of his hind legs when he first came into pound care, and x-rays have shown he has suffered two separate episodes of trauma to his leg causing severe injuries that can’t be repaired. As he grows, his bad leg isn’t keeping up and is causing him some discomfort. Vets have recommended he have his leg removed and say he will adjust very well since he has never really been able to use this leg anyway. He is due to have this operation very soon. While Harry will still have a relatively normal life with 3 legs, we do want to find him an understanding owner who will provide him with a little extra care.
Can you offer Harry lots of love, a warm bed, regular flea and worm treatments, quality food, daily walks and toys to play with?
As with all Pound Hounds, Harry must be allowed inside the home (this includes sleeping) so he can really be part of the family.
