8 yr outdated male Greyhound obtainable for adoption
Survivor is an 8 yr outdated male Greyhound. He’s fostered in Norwich Norfolk. I feel you possibly can see from the pics that he has not had it simple!
Survivor was discovered on the facet of the highway so weak that he couldn’t stand and coated in wounds. It took a while for him to achieve the power to even stroll however he’s now recovered and gained sufficient weight to be neutered and has come to the UK.
The vet believes he’s an outdated boy and we can not even think about the form of life he’s led. Survivor has a beautiful temperament and loves each adults and kids.
Survivor mixes nicely with different canines however is simply simply neutered so can nonetheless be somewhat bit edgy with some males. Survivor can not reside with cats or small furry animals.
Survivor walks properly on a lead but additionally spends limitless hours asleep on the couch. Whenever you undertake a Secure Rescue canine, you MUST use a slip lead.
This may hold your canine secure: your new canine will likely be nervous and won’t belief you, and you’ll not know which conditions would possibly upset your canine. In case your canine panics, then a slip lead is the one technique to stop your canine from escaping (many canines can escape from a collar and/or harness).
It’ll take AT LEAST 3-6 months to your canine to settle in and so that you can know your canine absolutely (longer for nervous canines).
The slip lead should ALWAYS be used throughout this settling-in interval.

Nervous canines might all the time must put on a slip-lead as a backup security measure.
The slip lead is a security system and should NEVER be used as a coaching device. Utilizing the result in apply stress to the canine’s neck is damaging.
In case your canine pulls on the lead, then we are able to advise you on coaching strategies that keep away from hurt. As soon as your canine is settled, chances are you’ll wish to think about using a harness (along with the slip lead) in case your canine is snug with being dealt with when it’s fitted.
Most harnesses are usually not escape-proof, however harnesses with a strap behind the ribcage (e.g. Ruffwear Webmaster or Good Match Harnesses) are safer. Retractable/extendable leads must not ever be used on our canines. Adopted canines should be collected from the rescue and transported straight dwelling in a crate.
