We have received a lot of interest in Frieda and are no longer accepting enquiries for her. She has been under vet care following operation to remove bladder stones. This may be an on-going condition and she is currently on special veterinary prescribed food. Adopters will need to consider being able to cover cost of future vet visits and care and long-term management around this condition to prevent re-occurrence. No previous history, found in poor condition, thin, evidence used for breeding. Friendly, no history relating to children, advise children over 14 years at this stage. Social with other dogs, not tested with cats. May not have previously lived in a home, not house trained, travel sick, behaviour when left unknown. As Frieda is starting to feel better her lively, hound character is starting to show, will need active home and access to a secure garden. Further details to follow.
As the owner you are responsible for providing everything your dog needs to keep them healthy and happy:
· Companionship - Dogs are very social and love spending time with people and sometimes other animals.
· Physical exercise - At least a couple walks a day.
· Mental Stimulation - Activity that keeps their mind busy / training.
· A healthy diet - Normally two feeds a day of the food type and quantity appropriate for the dog. Access to clean, fresh water.
· Veterinary care - When needed. Annual health check.
· Comfortable environment - Not too cold, hot, draughty or damp, where they can rest.
· Respect of their needs - Especially ensure children know how to behave around dogs to help them build a lasting friendship.
Each dog has specific needs, depending on its age, breed and type. For more info on caring for your dog please order our free pet care guide here: Pet Care Guide
