Description

 

Teddy is in Southampton kennels, he has been for X-rays this week and sadly it has confirmed he has hip dysplasia.
With this diagnosis we really need to get Teddy into a foster home so he can start building his muscles up in preparation for surgery in the future (we have no time frame as yet)and his exercise be carefully managed.
He will benefit from hydrotherapy which will be arranged.
Teddy will require hip surgery so we are looking for a foster home that can manage this and take care of him throughout his recovery period.
He is on medication to help manage his pain.

All costs will be covered by the rescue – food, vet bills, medication costs and any physio/ hydrotherapy too.

This is the hard bit…
Teddy will need a pet free home as he is scared and reactive towards other dogs. His physical exercise will need to be kept to a minimum. He will not be able to go for long walks and cannot chase a ball or jump in and out of a car – a ramp can be provided.
He won’t be able to go up and down stairs in a home either.
As he is a young dog he will need to be kept mentally stimulated with lots of different enrichment such as snuffle mats, games etc

Location wise we need a home based in the south of England – within sensible travelling distance to the Southampton area. This is because of the vet surgery we use .

If you can help please get in touch by sending me a pm or email me at andreagsrs@btinternet.com

Please consider  Teddy. He is only 18 months old and deserves every chance of a pain free , happy life 🥲

New Boy Teddy out on walkies. He is looking for a lovely foster home who will look after him whilst he has his hip ops. He walked well on the lead and enjoyed sniffing along the road with his nose to the ground. All the new scents for him! He took his treats ever so gently. Here's hoping the right foster home is out there for this lovely Boy.
