Dobermanns Needing Homes
Up-date: 19th November 2017 Handsome young Oz met up again with fellow Fondie Alice previously rehomed in January she travelled all the way up from the north west of England with her owners for a second meeting having fallen in love with Oz back in September. All went well and Oz is now happily ensconced in his new home after a 4 month stint as a foster dog at FOND’s H.Q. Oz is a FOND 2018 Calendar Boy being Mr July.
Up-date 2 November2017:: Oz has been busy since his last report in September. He has been attending socialisation classes on a Tuesday evening, he is virtually sound and his weight has gone up to 38 kilos. He had a follow up visit to our vets on the 1st November and she was pleased with him. Oz has quite a fan club and looks like he is going to a foster home with a view to adoption if he settles in. Oz can be quite a handful as he had no socialisation skills when he arrived and is a very clumsy, rather excitable boy so he can be challenging at times. He is very puppy in a big body and will easily be a 42 kilo plus dog when he is full developed. Oz went to the fund raising show in Fife and was handled by Anna Davidson and behaved impeccably.
Up-date 29th September: Oz is coming along in leaps and bounds, he is gaining muscle condition and weight and is now attending socialisation classes and has begun his hydrotherapy and treadmill regime. Still not completely sound he is not out of the woods yet and may yet requjire further x-rays or even an MRI scan. It does look as though his problem may be panosteitis and this will only come good with time and patience. Anyone who attends the Fun Dog Show in aid of FOND at Caldwell Farm, Collessie, Fife, KY15 7UY will be able to meet this overgrown pup.
Up-date 1 September: Oz goes for a heat scan on Monday 3 September and for assessment to see if hydro-therapy an option for his wasted leg.
Up-date 15th August: Since he arrived Ozzie has not been 100% sound. The good news is that after extensive X-rays of his hips and elbows x-rayed at Ayrton Vet Hospital, he does not have hip dysplasia or panosteitis. Currently he is receiving anti-inflammatory medication and if this does not resolve his problems his condition will require further investigation including an MRI scan for an accurate diagnosis.
Until vets have diagnosed Oz’s condition and given a prognosis we are unable to think about placing him in a home. Once we have this we will be able to find a new home for Oz and the best way forward for him.
Up-date 1st August: Sadly the handsome young Ozzie may have a problem with his hips and will be having an x-ray of his elbows and hips on the 4th August. Obviously this puts any potential rehoming on hold until these have been thoroughly assessed.
Oz is one tall gangly, entire young male, born 29th September 2016 who has not had the best start in life. Imported from Serbia in January this year he has already been sold on by the importer and not had the chance to enjoy any puppyhood or receive appropriate training.
Oz appears to have a lovely nature, he will jump up and mouth a little when excited but basically just wants to be as close to you as possible to the point where he nearly trips you up! He likes to play with toys and is very alert. Everything he sees has to be investigated. He is receiving a few lessons in manners from Priscilla who resents his clumsy ways and is not backward in telling him to get his act together.
Looking for an experienced home with someone who has plenty of time and patience to train Oz, currently his attention span is very short, but obviously unsettled with yet another move in his short life.
Photos available to applicants that have completed an approved adoption application form. Adoption contract will require Oz to be neutered once he has matured sufficiently. Anyone taking on Oz will be going back to basics, from house training, to learning to sit, wait and walk quietly to heel. He is a willing pupil.
