Hello all - we know many people are following this boy’s story - we thought we would give an update. He was left alone all day and lived in the garden by day and the cellar by night. He became very stressed and the family recognised the situation could not continue - sadly they felt the kindest thing was to PTS. Luckily a volunteer got involved and the family gave him to us - we will explain his full history for any suitable family - but we would rather focus on his future.
He hasn’t been groomed for a while - and is a bit scruffy in these photos. What we know - he walks well, travels well, loves people, is cheeky, and is a lovely airedale boy. He gets stressed easily and needs a home that will follow our advice - he has separation anxiety - does not like being contained (so no crates) and we will need to build his confidence and trust again. We feel in the right home he will blossom.
We dont know what he is like with dogs - he gets excited and wants to meet them - and we will do initial tests soon. We feel he will be ok, he hasn’t shown aggression. More to follow ... He loves being out and about and using his nose - our volunteer is working with him and we would expect any future family to follow what we have started. www.terriersos.com.
