Saddle

Saddle is a lovely 12 year old greyhound with a sweet, gentle and at times, funny personality!

Due to his age, he is a little shaky on his feet at times and needs a lot of rest. He needs help with stretches every day (similar to physio) which helps him build up his muscles. He only needs very short walks to strengthen him as he was very frail but has improved.

He has three meals a day, and lactose free milk three times a day as he does not drink enough water and gets bladder infections otherwise.

Saddle is a smart dog and can be very cheeky once he trusts his people! He is an inside boy and only goes outside for toileting and his light exercise. It would be good if his new owner had a doggie door to train him to take himself outside.

Saddle needs a home with no stairs, young children or young dogs as he is wobbly at times.

His owner needs to be understanding of his old man needs, and he does need to go to the toilet several times a night, so he needs a new owner with patience.

Can you offer this boy a home in his twilight years?
