Oddie came into our care in November, 2015, when his owners just couldn’t keep him. He’d had a toe removed just before he came to us, due to osteomyelitis (an infection in the bone) and we spent lots of time caring for him, bandaging his foot and keeping the wound clean.
Oddie showed himself to be a lovely, loving boy, very young at heart and adored playing with his tennis ball. But Oddie was 14 years old, had arthritis, dry eyes and suffered from sore skin/infections between his pads. So we knew the right home would not be easy to find.
It took six months, but a great couple came into our centre and saw past Oddie’s age and health problems. They gave an old dog like Oddie the chance of being happy in a new home. Eight months later, Oddie is loved, lively and playful. We can’t thank the family enough, for giving Oddie that special forever home that every animal deserves.
