Arlo and Hudson ( Believe his father) were found by a friend of one of our volunteers when she was visiting Spain.
They were found 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. So 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. Neither had ever been on a lead and panicked when initially clipped up so will need time and careful handling with this. They appear to be friendly to other dogs but have had no direct contact.
Arlo is still wary but he wants to be a part of the fun and has been picked up for cuddles. He has only known life in the open countryside and in a shelter so his new family will need to be prepared for the hard work of a pup, basic training, toilet, walking, getting used to noises and living in a home.
He is fully vaccinated and microchipped, and neutered.
With the right boundaries and guidance Arlo will all easily adjust and make a great family pets.
We ask our adopters to be 100% sure they are ready to commit to the training and hard work required for puppy adoption.
YOU MUST BE ABLE TO ADOPT UPON ARRIVAL 5TH JULY. IF YOU ARE NOT THEN PLEASE DO NOT APPLY AS YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE A RESPONSE.
