This gorgeous golden oldie is Pan, a hunting breed mix of around 10-12 years old. Dogs used for hunting in Spain often experience years of confinement, after which they are abandoned when they're no longer 'useful'. Poor Pan was no different, and he was found as a stray in very poor condition. He tested positive for Leishmaniasis, and has responded very well to treatment. This illness should never sentence a dog to life without a home, because it's very possible to manage it and dogs can go on to lead a healthy and happy life. We are happy to explain in more detail, and Pan's ongoing treatment is inexpensive and straightforward. In exchange for the warmth and love of a family, Pan will repay tenfold. He has a beautiful temperament, gentle and affectionate towards people, good with all other dogs (older and younger) and we believe he could also settle in a home with cats, as long as careful introductions were made. We don't know if he has had much experience around children, but given what we know of him and his wonderful, easy-going nature, we would be open to applications from families with children over 10 years old.
As a breed that loves being in nature, and exploring scents, we believe Pan would enjoy walks and would absolutely love the opportunity to get outside on a daily basis. We don't have any background information about him, as he was wandering on the street and without a microchip. Because of this, we don't know if he has ever lived in a home environment or how he would behave there, so he will need a patient family to help him settle. He is grateful for any attention and love he gets, and we would love to see him relaxing in his own cosy bed, which is something he has probably never before experienced.
We know that this adoption will be harder to find, because an older dog with leishmaniasis, will usually be overlooked. We hope you will give Pan a chance at a happy retirement.
He is ready to travel to UK (England or Wales, but NOT Scotland) as soon as the family comes forward who can offer him a lovely home. If you are interested in this gentle soul, please get in touch with us
