Please meet URBAN – who is a six-month puppy looking for a griffon-loving home!

This beautiful boy arrived in the refuge via the pound where he apparently was in a poor state, covered in fleas and ticks . . . and of course no-one claimed him.    It was clear that he is still very young and the refuge is not the place for such a young lad.  However, we also did not have any available fosterers for him, so we took the next best step and put him in one of the pensions we use in such circumstances.

The benefit of taking this action when fosterers are not available is they give the dog a sense of safety, of routine, of regularity of contact, and getting used to some basic “manners” for living in a human world.

I had set him up as in a poor state and in great need of a haven.  Well it turns out that this boy surprised everyone – this is what Gerry, the pension owner had to say:

I thought XX had delivered the wrong dog on Sunday – definitely not underfed/weight. Beautiful well behaved dog, very affectionate, easy to walk, gets on well with other dogs, only fault (!) is that he loves attention

Well, if that’s not a signal that this boy is ready to move to the next stage I don’t know what is.  All we need now is to find a loving home for him – be it foster, or foster with view to adoption.

URBAN is currently in Department 65, but home is far more important than location.
