Arnold is a beautiful boy but has some specific needs – please read the following information carefully as only suitable applicants will be considered. Thank you for your understanding!
– Requires ongoing management of separation distress
– Requires surgery on his back right knee
Arnold is a special guy who will make a great addition to the right home; he is affectionate and absolutely gorgeous. He bonds very quickly with people and becomes distressed if he is left alone; he will require a stable, quiet home with a consistent daily routine and a family who are at home all the time and can help him work through this issue. SDCH recommends a force-free qualified behaviourist and behaviour veterinarian be engaged to help with the management of his separation distress.
Arnold also requires surgery to fix a dislocating kneecap in his right knee. SDCH will be covering the costs of his dental procedure and desexing, but we are asking his new family to assist with the cost of the knee surgery ($1500-$2500). The surgery is generally very successful and will ensure the second half of his life is comfortable and pain-free.
Apart from those couple of things, Arnold is a lovely dog who really deserves a comfortable home and a family he can trust. We are recommending a home without other animals, but homes with a calm and confident dog friend will also be considered.
