Walton

A Male Labernese presently Available For Adoption

Meet Walton, a friendly Labernese --  great dog, bad hips.  Walton was transferred from the SPA – La Beauce.  In fact, that is the reason he was transferred; they felt he would have a better chance of getting a home as one of our adoptees.  We have opted not to do surgery although we do recommend cartrophen injections, daily exercise in a moderate amount, weight maintenance, and simply enjoying the companionship this fellow is eager to share.  Hip dysplasia causes arthritis which is a progressive condition; therefore, at some point in Walton’s life, pain meds might be required in exchange for a fairly normal, comfortable life.  This could very well be the reason he was abandoned in the first place.  Animatch is committed to Walton and we won’t let him down.  We realize that for some this may be an issue but honestly, we consider that this handsome, devoted, goofy boy who loves everybody deserves an opportunity to have a great life.    The only thing that would make life just a little better for him at this point is a forever family!  Walton gets along well with other dogs although he is quite possessive when food is involved.  He also tends to be quite mouthy when he gets over excited which is a behaviour that can be worked on.    Animatch would like to see him go to an experienced family with older respectful children.  Walton seeks a family who will commit to him for the rest of his life.  Are you looking to add a little energy to your family?  Please consider adopting Walton; he is ready to start a new life.

Am I ready for a dog?

Adopting a dog is a life-changing event--or should be. A dog needs lots of time and attention and you've got to be there every day to give it. So, BEFORE filling out the Animatch adoption form, find out whether you're ready for a dog, or would be happier with a goldfish instead: Fill this great questionnaire now to find out if you are ready for a dog.
