Sometimes an urgent appeal really is urgent, a dog who is old, or needs a home urgently for welfare reasons. However sometimes a dog is our urgent appeal just because we like him or her very much and want him or her to be happy. Such is the case this week, as we present to you Look.
This fabulous German shepherd cross was found at the SPA gates one morning along with a note from his owner to tell us that she no longer wanted him. As Look was identified, we were able to phone her (which seemed to take her by surprise!). We were thus able to find out a bit more about this boy.
Turns out that Look had spent his whole life either in the house tied up a the bottom of his owner’s garden. He was never walked and has had no contact with other animals. Look is busy trying to make up for lost time on the walking front, and calls pitifully if there is a chance of going out. He is a little bit strong at first, but is learning very quickly and stops immediately you call his name. Understandably, though, he is keen to explore. He likes to stop for a cuddle, though, and is really affectionate.
Look is gradually being introduced to other dogs and shows no aggression at all, and he is fine with children.
Look was born in April 2013, so is in the prime of life. I really like him and would love him to find a new, loving home as soon as possible.
