ULK – 13 yr-old Groenendael/Belgian Shepherd boy – Adoption in Progress!

ULK was found living on a balcony, where he had been for two years, no exercise, no bed and no shelter. He was fed and watered, but clearly insufficient for his needs. He was in a desperate state, with matted coat and is very thin and under-muscled.

The SPA team rescued him and have brought him to sanctuary. What a wonderful, kind, forgiving, gentle boy he is. We have groomed him and found a chain-collar completely matted into his fur. There is more grooming to be done, he has a magnificent coat – and he absolutely loves it being groomed, he loves to be stroked and cuddled and his dear old tail just wags gently in sheer pleasure and relief.

We will give him all the love we can, and gentle exercise to help him recover some strength. What he needs most of all is a patient and caring family to give him what little time he has left, in comfort and warmth, surrounded by love.

He benefits from a 500€ Veterinary Voucher for his healthcare, after adoption.
The adoption fee is “don libre” = zero, or any donation the adopter wishes to make.
