24/8/20 – No surprise that lovely Red has a new home lined up already after being spotted on the Oldies Club website. Brilliant news!
Adorable Red is an 11-year-old Collie X Terrier boy who is at Chilterns Dog Rescue Society in Hertfordshire.
Red arrived in rescue during lockdown as his owner could no longer care for him. He had extra TLC at the Rescue Centre to help him regain weight, completed all his vet checks, and then moved to a foster home where he has settled in beautifully.
Red is a calm, good-natured dog who seems to expect little of life. He would like a quiet retirement home but is more than just a sofa companion as he enjoys several walks each day of at least 20 minutes each. He is steadily regaining strength and fitness. A secure garden for him to explore would be very welcome.
Red is used to being with a smaller dog and has been sociable with all the dogs he has met in rescue. However, he would probably prefer to be an only dog, to receive all the care and attention he has been missing in recent years. Red has not lived with a cat or other animals but could possibly do so with careful introductions. Visiting older children would be welcome if they were gentle around him but he is looking for a quieter life with one or two adults.
Red has limited experience of travelling and could be anxious at first, but he has been so accommodating of all new things that he should get used to this as well. He can be left for a few hours without becoming distressed but would really like someone home for the greater part of the day.
Red has no ongoing health issues. When he was neutered, a retained testicle was removed, plus a couple of small cysts and benign lumps. He has some plaque on his teeth so would benefit from a dental in due course, but he has not been put under another general anaesthetic so soon after his other surgery.
CDRS are happy for Red to go to anywhere in the country if would-be adopters felt comfortable to travel and meet him.
