End of life care for this boy
This is 13 year old Costa, a neglect victim now in the care of our friends at West Country Dobermann Rescue, Natalie Nicole Skyla Birch and team ... he is an old man and needs to live his twilight years in peace and surrounded by love. Being an old man, his new folk will not be having to face vet bills etc as his rescue will take care of all that. He needs a quiet home in Cornwall... he cannot 'do' stairs ( a step is ok) nor young dogs as it is just too much for him. He would do well with an older female. He loves people, car journeys, laying around.. chillin. Here is the spec from his rescue:
'He’s a lovely old boy of 13 years but has very specific needs. He can’t do stairs but can manage a small step in and out of the front and back doors, needs to be walked on flat grass land flatly refuses to walk between trees so woods is no good. Friendly with all people/children and cats but doesn’t like young boisterous dogs as he gets scared but older slower dogs he’s happy to be around so could live with a bitch of that nature. Has to have puppy pads under rear end as empties bowels lying down although he started taking himself to the garden now. Pees outside with no problem.
When we first got him his mobility was poor and had muscle wastage so this is improving. Very stubborn and will chuck himself to the floor if he doesn’t want to do something like going out for his last wee or being made to leave the pet shop and then you have to lift him off the floor because he’s a bugger. Ideally a bungalow so he can sleep in the bedroom as he will wake up early and bark to check you’re still there. Can be left for just over an hour but not much more. Loves car journeys and meeting new people sitting outside cafes etc.'
