Cassidy

#700 Cassidy, Male, 1.5 Years Old

Cassidy is about 1.5 years old neutered male. He is sweet, cuddly, cute as can be. He likes to play, and take walks, but mostly likes to be with his human. I can’t tell you how much this little guy charms everyone he meets! The vet staff, and PT staff just love him. He gets along quite well with the other dogs in his foster home. We don’t know how he does with cats at this time.He came to us with severe hip dysplasia, and required a double FHO, and is almost ready to adopt. Cassidy just needs to complete his last round of water treadmill therapy. He is on the small side, under 20” at the withers and will need to be on some joint/mobility type supplements. He will need arthritis care later in his life, and whoever takes him on must be able to handle that.

Cassidy will make a wonderful pet for someone who is willing to cuddle and get doggy kisses. He is a bit more laid back, because of his hips, and will never be a sport prospect, but will need some regular exercise like walking or light fetch sessions to keep him strong. He takes to clicker training, is very smart, and may be fun if someone wants to do some obedience/rally or nose work, something light. His run is more of a bunny hop, but don’t let that fool you, he can be quite fast.

His vet records will come with his original X-rays to show the extent of his Dysplasia before surgery. But, don’t let that scare you from adopting this boy, he will be a wonderful companion in a small package for the right adopter.
