  • Meet Angus

    Angus was spotted in the Valjevo pound and our rescuer stepped in to help him.  He was in an awful state and was very skinny but has made up for it since. He is medium/large in size, 21 inches to the shoulder and 21kg.  A very calm dog, he is good with people and other dogs. He likes a plod around and is great company.


    He is now in a foster home in Cumbria.  This is what his foster mum has to say about him:


    'Angus is a very calm and gentle boy.  He arrived in September and he already comes to his name, is happy to have his harness on, and walks beautifully on his lead.  He will pull if he sees small creatures or something nice to eat so a strong arm might be needed then'.


    New news from Angus' foster mum, 'Just such an amazing boy. He never ceases to amaze me how good he is, came straight over to get his nails cut. Lay down and allowed me to cut them, no fuss, no wiggling. Just perfect'.


    Apart from being a food hunter, he is a perfect dog.  Angus happily lives alongside two other dogs in his foster home.  He greets visitors with a request to be stroked.  He wouldn't be suitable for a home with very small children as he is very enthusiastic about taking treats, does like to lean on you and could easily knock a young child over. However, Angus is perfectly happy in children's company so a home with children 8 plus would be fine for him.


    Angus has had to have several teeth removed but those that remain are healthy. His ears are a bit raggedy due to previous fly strike and he might need some ointment for this occasionally. He had a small bump on his lower jaw analysed and it was non-cancerous bump that commonly grows between jaw ligaments. It will not spread within the body.


    A routine x-ray to assess Angus for hip dysplasia found his hips and knees to be in good condition. There were no signs of arthritis. We were alerted to a couple of very mild areas of degeneration in his spine however. These are not causing him any issues and there is no reason to believe they will progress beyond minor changes but he will benefit from a supplement and may need anti-inflammatories in the future. At the moment Angus has full flexibility, jumps in and out of cars and goes up and down stairs etc. His whole body wriggles with excitement when he sees you.


    Angus is vaccinated and neutered and ready to find a special someone who won't ever abandon him again.


    All our dogs are tested for the following prior to travel: Heartworm, Anaplasmosis, Erlichiosis, Lyme Disease, Brucellosis (since 11th June 2021).
