Hudson and Arlo ( his likely son) were found by a friend of one of our volunteers when she was visiting Spain.
They found them abandoned on open land in the middle of nowhere. They were afraid of anyone passing by and kept their distance. Over the following few weeks their rescuers would stop and feed them but they wouldn’t come close. They were very distrusting and aware of keeping their distance. Over the weeks they were encouraged approach closer using food as the attraction. Eventually they were able to catch them.
They had also been given treatment for ticks, fleas and worms whilst feeding them. By the time they were taken to the shelter they were free of them all!
They settled in the shelter really well and have begun to develop a trust with the staff. Now they get very excited when any anyone approaches and are very happy for any attention.
Hudson would like the company of another sociable dog and we feel he will gain confidence and security with another or at least acmes to meet dogs daily.
Hudson loves nothing more than to be held and cuddled. He had ever been on a lead and panicked when initially clipped up so will need time and careful handling with this. He has only known life on the open countryside and in a shelter so his new family need to be prepared for the hard work of basic training, toilet, walking, getting used to noises and living in a home.
With the right boundaries and guidance Hudson will all easily adjust and make a great family pet.
We ask our adopters to be 100% sure they are ready to commit to the training and hard work required for a rescue dog with a background such as Hudson's.
YOU MUST BE ABLE TO ADOPT AFTER A SUCCESSFUL HOME CHECK AS WE WILL RECIEVE MANY ENQUIRIES
