WIGGY

German Shepherd Dog, Crossbreed | 10 years old

Description

**PLEASE NOTE THAT, WHILE WE MAY CONSIDER LONG DISTANCE APPLICATIONS ESPECIALLY FOR ANIMALS WITH MORE SPECIFIC NEEDS, LOCAL APPLICATIONS ARE GENETRALLY PREFFERED AT THIS TIME.***


This sweet soul is Wiggy. We don't know a great deal about his background, but when he arrived it was clear that he had been through a lot. He was in pretty bad shape, and had obviously not had a loving family for a while. Despite all his problems though, his sweet and gentle nature shone through. 


At first, the only place Wiggy seemed at home was in his kennel. However, due to his medical needs he has been staying with a foster family. Wiggy is now on anti-inflammatory medication for his back legs, which has allowed him a whole new lease of life. He is starting to get braver, and learn what life looks like as a beloved pet. He has benefitted so much from the medicine and regular short walks, and we think he could probably also benefit from some physio in future.


Now that he is doing better, his foster family have started to notice sparkles of a cheeky personality. They have children and a cat in the home, so he has shown that he can be trusted around both. He is a little shy at first, and will look for reassurance from his most familiar friend, but so far, he gets along with everyone. He also enjoys meeting other friendly dogs on walks too, and is getting more outgoing as his confidence grows.


Wiggy really loves a fuss and a belly rub, and needs a lot of reassurance, so we think he would love a family who don't have to leave him alone too often for too long. Everything seems to be new to him, so he doesnt understand many commands or have much street sense, and will need someone prepared to put time and energy into showing him the ropes. 


We are not able to arrange meetings with the dogs due to current covid-19 restrictions, however we are still taking applications and reserving the dogs for first encounters when they are allowed.
